where do I add Bars Leaks in my 2008 Chrysler Sebring?

Asked by Nov 11, 2016 at 11:40 AM about the 2008 Chrysler Sebring Touring Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a pinhole leak in my radiator that I want to fix with Bars Leaks.  But the only access I can find to the radiator is the coolant reservoir that has a locking pressure cap.  Is it safe to pour it in there?

Yes. That is your radiator cap, there is no access to the top of the radiator directly.


I would not use Bars Leaks myself. Try Aluma-seal.

Bars Leak will not fix your leak in the radiator. You're better off buying a radiator for $100 and replacing it.

I agree, a new rad if you want to keep the vehicle. Bars leak works, but only temporary in my experience.

You also run the risk of clogging up the heater core and the coolant passages in the engine. This can cause overheating and your heater to stop working! If you absolutely can't get a new radiator right now, put some black pepper in the radiator. The kind of pepper you use to season your food. It won't dissolve or clog up anything. But it will stop a pin hole leak. It's a depression era trick my Father taught me. HTH. -Jim
