Re: Radiator Stop Leak??
There used to be a product calls Barr's Stop Leak, or something similar. I
used it years ago, with amazing results, on a 5KT. I sold the car a couple
of years at least after putting it in, and the leak never returned. I even
flushed the system once, and the leak didn't return. I was impressed.
The leak was past the head gasket, if I recall correctly. Before the
treatment, it was blowing a lot of steam. Pretty impressive ( the steam
and the treatment).
I wouldn't use it in my urQ, but the old 5KT was rather well past its prime
so I figured I didn't have much to lose.
