The fix in the bottles work in most instances but only temporary. If you plan on keeping the car for long period of time, fix it correctly.

Tom. I've had my fair share of getting screwed over recently and my head gasket wasn't actually fix and a lot of money came out my pocket. At this point I want to just fix it for the mean time to get to work and back at least and save up. Should I flush it out first?


The only fix is a new head gasket. Maybe this junk will buy you some time or maybe not. Flushing the engine would not do anything in regards to a leaking head gasket.


Depends on how large the leak is through the head gasket. It might work and it might not. It is a bandaide at best.
