How Long Do Stop Leak Products Last?

At Bar’s Leaks, we like to think of our engine stop leak products as temporary fixes that last forever! Kidding aside, in some cases, the only way to repair a leak is by replacing the faulty part. Certain head gasket, oil pump, radiator and power steering line leaks are simply too severe to fix with ANY chemical repair tool. In many other cases, when you first detect a leak, you can save a lot of money and get a long-lasting fix with one of our advanced formulations.

So how long can you expect them to last? It depends. If the leak is mild to moderate, we’ve had customers run 10,000-50,000 miles with no further issues. If the leak is more severe, or on the edge of becoming severe, the repair might last a shorter duration. The advice we always give is to act at the first sign/symptom of a cooling system problem. Like medical issues, the sooner you can catch the problem the better!

So, the key is to catch your leaks early and choose the right product for your leak. We have regular and concentrated formulas for most types of engines fluids as well as specific products for different types of components such as aluminum, copper or steel. See our products for cooling systems here. These are the products that made us the most recommended and relied-upon brand for cooling system and head gasket leaks – and we’re talking about consumers and professionals alike.

Inspect Your Vehicle Often

If you drive a new vehicle still under warranty, the best bet is to let the dealership fix your car via hard part replacement at no charge to you. Why wouldn’t you? That’s what a dealer warranty is for.

However, for drivers of older vehicles, you can save a lot of money and a trip to the mechanic by turning to Bar’s Leaks. Consider us for:

  • Engine oil leaks: Our engine oil stop leak products typically last for the life of your engine. Most of our customers suffer unrelated engine issues that take their engine out of service before our engine stop leak products stop working.
  • Head gasket leaks: Due to the extreme heat, vibration and stress a head gasket is subjected to, even a small crack will eventually become a big one. Our blown head gasket leak repair products can give you tens of thousands of extra miles before head gasket repair is necessary.
  • Radiator leaks: If you catch a minor radiator leak when it starts with a Bar’s Leaks radiator stop leak product, you’re likely never going to have to address it again. Our advanced formulation binds to your radiator and stops leaks for good.
  • Power steering leaks: Most power steering leaks occur at the lines and connectors, so continued vibration and wear can cause them to fail down the road. You can expect tens of thousands of miles from one treatment of Bar’s Leaks power steering repair solutions in most cases.
