SuperLouie76: Would someone please explain the how and why driving my vehicle for 500 miles with only tap water in my coolant system won't damage my coolant components (radiator, water pump, etc.)? Wouldn't at least distilled water be less damaging? Thanks.
Shane Rhabb: When I start up my car it looks like I have a mix between white smoke and blue smoke. At low speeds and low rpms my car will let out a trail of bluish smoke. I still have to do a compression test but I think it might be my rings or valve seals that are going bad. What do you you think?
A Few Minutes With jman: Sir I have a confirmed head casket leak according to my mechanic. I have a question that was not mentioned in this video or asked in a comment. Before adding and using this product should the oil be changed? I do have anti freeze in the oil. Thanks in advance.
Margaret P. Clarke: what if I can't get the engine to run. I loaded the stuff into the radiator and kept trying to turn the engine over but nothing water still explosively blowing out the radiator.
James Peters: Hi, What's the opinion on the best head gasket repair product for a 93 Chevy straight 6? Definitely water in the oil. Overheats quickly. Positive it's the head gasket 90% or a cracked block 50%.
jjsiegal1: Just tried this product....car started to overheat AT the end of 30 mins run through--???
Jenalin Balela: bars head gasket leak is better. just pour idle and let cool. it works and its better and easier to use. I used it.
SuperLouie76: Can this harm my vehicle if the head gasket is not causing my overheating? I've had everything replaced - thermastat, radiator, water pump, fan clutch, and had a compression test done that came back fine. I tried doing the combustion gas test on my own with the radiator and the color barely changed. Went from a dark blue to a little lighter blue. I am loosing coolant fluid, but there is no noticeable leak. The overfill bubbles when I stop driving and the overheat indicator goes up over halfway then drops back down. Sometimes the car will run hot while driving and other times it runs fine. The most noticeable issue is if I drive a long time say 50 miles or so as soon as I pull over the temperature gauge redlines, but no visible coolant leaks. Sometimes I can get back on the hwy and the guage will fluctuate between halfway and to the redline and other times the car cools back down once back on the hwy. After letting it sit overnight I open the radiator cap and I am about a 1/2 to 3/4 gallon low. Could this be a heater core issue as the heat doesn't seem to blow real hot when my van starts to run hot and one shop thought I had air trapped in the heater core. Or maybe something simple like a radiator cap? Could it be an issue with the water pump and the lower radiator hose connection as twice I've taken it back and the shops claimed where the lower radiator hose hooks to the water pump was loose. Yet I didn't see any coolant leaking. I am taking it back to the mechanic again as the running hot issue continues to persist and now the check engine light is back on. This is on a 2000 dodge van with a 5.9 liter engine. Many of the repairs we're no charge as they didn't fix the issue.
Last question: if I do try the sealer since I'm in Phoenix with temps in the 110's will I be able to drive around town without overheating running on just water? Is it better to use tap water or distilled water?
Christopher Jackson: i just might need a whole new engine. Got the radiator replaced. Head gasket could be blown. Making a clicking noise Plus its still leaking out some where. I have a 93' Cadillac deville if anyone had some knowledge on these engines
350Zquicksilver: A neighborhood mechanic mentioned K&W also, stated it was better than BlueDevil. But who knows whats best and what will work given all the factors involved, each situation is it's own experiment. Your meethod is similar to the pour+go technique, that's fine if you don't have patients or time. I'm taking the slower route with hopes of a better result. "Scotty Kilmer" success rate and technique similar to K&W's instructions seems like the safer choice. Fun times... GL out there everyone!
Joe Martinez: Hi Mr. Mechanic, would you please tell me who sells this product or if you have a pic of the product. The only product i found with a K is K sealer. Great Video by the way. Thanks
LINEHACKER: sealant kills cars
ThisJustIn: Just to be clear, Change the gasket, and use the sealer AFTER instead of sending it off to a machine shop?
Or use the sealant without changing the gasket. My car has been loosing a little water over time, I finally tracked it to the side of the engine block leaking out. Also when I filled the car radiator with water a few of the spark plugs were wet, which tells me the head may have warped.
303y03: I drained radiator and then mixed 1/3rd bottle with 1/2 gal hot tap water in an empty jug. Alternated the concoction with fresh 50/50 mix until full. Drove one hour with heat on high. Continued to see evidence of blow-by (bubbles in overflow tank) after the drive. Next a.m. I topped off with the remainder of my sealer/H20 mix. No more bubbling in the overflow, coolant holding a constant level too.
James Hannah: Any advise my car saying its over heating the no water in the bottle but when u open the lid the water rises back in to normal leaves from the engine and also it's bubbling when it gets to 90c
bbblackbird69: I've used KW several times with water/oil head gasket problems with GREAT success but right now I have a 2000 chevy venture I cant figure out why it overheats? I was told these GM v6 motor get air leaks?? I replaced the thermo and it runs very well but still heats up. no water in the oil and doesn't leak or use coolant or oil???? is this also a good candidate for KW??
emil state: thak you for video this K&W is working for diesel too? Thanks
Mario Lorio: Hi I have a 94 toyota camry and is overheating alot, my mechanic told me water is going to the motor, so I have a blown gasket. I have to keep putting water all the time in the radiator and I removed the thermostat out of my car. Will the seal work on my car. Thanks for the video....
