Using any type of stop leak product is just a "Band-Aid". Usually it will block cooling system passages and cause overheating. The coolant has to be going somewhere. Pull the dipstick for the oil. Is there white "goop" on it? If so you've got a blown head gasket. Same is true if you get excessive amounts of water condensation out the exhaust. Is the heater core leaking? Check for wet spots on the passenger's side carpet. Look for coolant on top of the engine. Could be a leaking intake manifold as well. HTH. -Jim

I must agree with Jim about products that claim to stop leaks, in cooling system or anywhere, sure it may stop a leak for a day, a week, but will end up doing more harm and the eventual repair will just be more expensive
