Never use a sealant on a standard vehicle, it can cause more problems that it fixes, plugging up small ports, radiators, heater cores, etc. If it is just a blown headgasket I would just get it repaired, it might cost a little but it would still beat the cost of buying another car, unless the engine is totally trashed, then you might consider a used engine.

Tennisshoes is correct. Never waste your money on any sealers they are all useless. Replace the head-gaskets yourself(or have a friend do it) or just pay to have them replaced (as long as that is the only problem with the engine).

Earlier today ( in my manual 1998 Honda accord) I started my car in neutral and had my foot all the way down on the gas I didn't hear my engine rev because my friend was blasting music I realized I was giving it as after I had hit 8k rpms and my car shut off then I tried to drive it and the engine sounded like there was something loose or clanging and shut off after letting off the gas. I do not know much about cars any ideas to what may be wrong with my engine?

Proabality of a thrown rod is very high, in other words bye bye engine, if the block is still good it can be overhauled.
