See What Our Customers Are Saying View More Testimonials
I had a leak in the radiator of my car and I used your product and today saved a lot of money. Before that, I have to buy a gallon of coolant every week and now I don't buy coolant any more, I forgot when was the last time I had to buy it. After that, I bought your products for engine and transmission and used them. My old car is working quiet and it is saving gas, I don't know the exact quantity but I know that I am saving money in gas. I am very happy with your Cooling System Repair (part 1150) blue and black product in the clear double sided bottle. You guys are the best, thanks again. - R. F. Rey - Alpopka, FL
- Can Bar’s Leaks® Cooling System Repair be installed in existing antifreeze coolant?
Yes, Cooling System Repair is specifically designed to be directly added to the cooling system without having to flush out the antifreeze as long as manufactures recommendations are followed. It also can be used in water alone. NOTE: Cooling systems that are dirty or partially clogged should be flushed before usage.
- Do I need to drain my cooling system after using Cooling System Repair?
No, this product is designed to be left in the cooling system to protect from future leaks and overheating.
- Can I install Cooling System Repair in my overflow reservoir?
Yes, if direct access to the radiator cap is not available, install in overflow tank.
- Will it work in the new extended life antifreeze?
Yes, Cooling System Repair is compatible with ALL types of 50-50 mix antifreeze including yellow, orange, pink, red, blue and green silicate based & non-silicate based OAT / HOAT coolant and / or water.
- Will this work in both domestic and import cars and trucks?
Yes, Cooling System Repair will work in all types of water cooled vehicles.
- How long does it take to see results?
We recommend you drive/idle the vehicle for 15 minutes. In most cases the leak will be sealed instantly, but others will require up to 20 minutes. If the leak is not sealed in 20 minutes, a second application may be required or mechanical repair may be needed.
- Will Cooling System Repair plug my heater core?
No, Bar’s Leaks® Cooling System Repair product is part of the next generation stop leak line which is certified to be used in all cooling system types. Safely and easily seal leaks in plastic, aluminum and metal (copper / steel) radiators, heater cores, gaskets and freeze plugs. Note: If using Bar’s Leaks® to stop heater core leaks, make sure you turn your heater control to HOT. Some vehicles have a valve that controls coolant flow through the core and is only opened in the HOT position.
- What are the dosage recommendations?
Use 1 (one) bottle for regular size cooling systems, this covers most 4, 6, 8 and 10 cylinder engines. For small cooling systems under 1.5 gallons, use half of each side of bottle. For larger systems, use 1 (one) bottle for every 4 gallons of cooling system capacity.
- How does Xtreme Cool™ make the vehicle run cooler?
The Xtreme Cool™ additive in Cooling System Repair reduces the surface tension of coolant increasing the wetting ability. This improves heat transfer reducing coolant temperature helping to prevent overheating and leaks.
- The bottle froze before I was able to use it, what can I do?
If the bottle did not break from freezing, just let the product thaw out, shake well, and use as normal.

“I had a substantial drip coming from the water pump. Your product was able to seal it after a 20 drive. Thank you for a great product.”
“Let me preface by saying I don't know much about cars. I only know that I've had horrible luck with them. I've done a lot of work and maintenance on my Ford Escape 2005. The first time it was overheating, was because the fans were broken. After I got them replaced, the car ran good until it got a leak somewhere in the reservoir/tubes to the radiator. For months I had to keep dumping coolant/water into the reservoir EVERY SINGLE TIME I needed to get to work or even just go down a few blocks cause it would start leaking badly after just a few minutes of putting it in
I tried for weeks to find the leak but could never find it. I was skeptical that the Cooling System Repair (1150) was going to work, but I tried it at the recommendation of a friend. I am happy to say that it definitely works. In my case my car is still overheating but at least a lot less faster, and I haven't had to add any coolant or water for a week now. Just remember to SHAKE WELL!”
“Tried today on a 2004 BMW 325ci. I had a radiator leak and almost paid $300+ dollars to replace the radiator. I saw this product online, called my mechanic and asked his opinion. He said, "why not?" I bought it for under $10 at Walmart. Followed the directions and have been driving all day with no more leaks. Seems to be working GOOD! Leak has stopped!”
“Used this for unknown leak in the top of my girls' '98 Crown Victoria engine. Worked great.”
“I have a 1989 Jeep Wrangler with a small leak in the top half of the cooling system. I would constantly have to top up the radiator with antifreeze. So get this, I was in a store looking to get a phone and we happened to get talking about our cars. The woman helping me advised me to try the Bar's Leaks Cooling Repair. I put it in and to my surprise it fixed the leak. Thanks to the woman in the store and especially to Bar's Cooling Repair. The stuff is magic!”
