liquid glass is nothing I'd want in my engine.
Buy time, correct, fix the issue, NO. Nobody said it wasn't going to work. You could throw a hand full of saw dust in there and eventually it will stop the leaking too.Looks like the "**** that doesn't work" is going to buy me some time.

My previous experience with stop leak stuff was as a temp measure to get you down the road far enough to get it fixed. As a crazy teen, I burnt up a couple motors due to heat. The second time was a stop leak product gone bad. Clogged up the thermostat and overheated the engine. Since then, no way..
The anxiety of knowing that some day the temp gauge is going to spike without notice, a hot water mixture of some sort will be try to escape out the overflow and your block will get twice as hot as it should... and BAM your worse off than before.
I am glad it is no longer leaking, I would't use it.
For a while GM was putting leak stop tabs in some vehicles as a half assed solution to a big [email protected] up. When they actually fixed the problem they stopped using the tablets.I've researched the web to find that various car companies use liquid seal products as a preventive mesure for coolant leaks, GM is a big example they use Barr leaks.
I read elsewehre the tabs were bad news bear.For a while GM was putting leak stop tabs in some vehicles as a half assed solution to a big [email protected] up. When they actually fixed the problem they stopped using the tablets.
If I had a beater that I wanted to keep alive for as long as possible or an engine I knew I was going to replace I would have no problems using these "liquid glass" products. If I knew I was going to fix the problem and was keeping the engine I would use a milder product like prestone's leak stopper that you can actually flush out when you want to. The stop leak tablets are fine too.
When was the last time you changed your coolant before now? Post a picture of this 'stuff'.SafariDave, The pictures of the label on the bottle are rather large (1.6MB), so too large to post. PM me with your email address and I'll send the pictures like that.
btw - flushed the system some more this weekend, found a lot of "stuff" on the thermostat. Disco is still overheating...
