Nope, the engine has to be running for the "goop" to circulate and find the leak. HTH. -Jim

Ditto, both of those guys are right. There is no magic hocus~ pocus in a can even if it did start

I know folks who used it and they are driving there cars for years.. so you have to weigh the risks and the worth of the vehicle. But no, cannot put it in if it won't start.

    All looks good with key in the ignition and dash board lights on. Car does not start with no clicking or other noise. It does start occasionally but mostly after a few days.
