Yes you COULD just be for warned, you may stop the leaking but you will also clog up otherwise perfectly clear cooling passages. If you insist on using the stop leak put in small amounts at a time. Not the whole thing at once.

Get the leak fixed. BoholMark is right it will clog up.

Here's an old depression era trick my Dad taught me. Put black pepper in the radiator. The same kind you use at the dinner table. It'll stop the leak and won't clog anything up. HTH. -Jim
