No. My experience. Maybe to get you home, but it's temporary at best, and think about it: goop in your engine looking for holes to plug. Like oil passages. Some guys swear by it.

Some people say it works. I believe in a proper repair, but I guess it can't hurt to give it a try.

I would say 50/50 chance of a temporary fix.
