I got my car back from the shop today with a new steering rack and some welding done, and may I say, the car drives like a dream now. No thudding or having to hold the steering wheel at a 30 degree angle. Then to my dismay I look under to see my nice shiny rack and pinion and I see green fluid comming out of my rad.... i cussed for about 20 min since she already costed me 400$ today. To my luck in my garage i had a bottle of un-used radiator leak sealant and it did the job very nicely. so I don't have to spend an extra 200$ on a new radiator, and I can spend it on the new tires i so desperatly need.

thats the worse thing you can put in your car!! you shouldn't be proud of that stupid move, that sh*t can screw up your day if it plugs something inthere other that the hole that was leaking.

in a pinch u can use it but i suggest that when u have some time to remove the fuild and run h2o in the car to find the leak and fix it correctly

If seen this guy put pepper in his radiator and actually watched a leak stop I couldnt beleive it, and on myth busters they broke an egg and put it in a radiator that they poked a hole in and the egg actually stopped the leak. Then shortly after they poured bleach in the oil and it pretty much locked the engine.
