Your best bet it to locate the leak. A small inspection mirror will help you look in the small places. As far as a stop leak product I would have to advise against using it. These products might stop you leak but what else are they stopping up in the process. I feel the use of these types of products will only lead to bigger and more costly repairs in the future.
