Head Gasket Repair
- Can Bar’s Leaks Block Seal Head Gasket Repair be installed in existing antifreeze?
No, you must first drain and flush the entire cooling system, including the overflow tank and refill with water. All antifreeze must be removed from cooling system or clogging could occur.
- Why do I have to drain and flush my cooling system?
This product contains regular sodium silicate (liquid glass) and this is not compatible with antifreeze.
- Should I flush the cooling system after I use this product?
After using this product, flush entire cooling system with water before adding antifreeze.
- Do I need to let the cooling system air dry?
For best results, leave the cooling system open for 12 to 24 hours after draining the product from the cooling system. If in freezing temperatures you must keep engine warm or store in a heated garage.
- How does this type of product work?
This chemical repair contains a blend of aramid and refractory fibers giving the strength of a bullet-proof vest and the heat resistance of fire-proof clothing. As these particles penetrate a crack or the blown head gasket area, they lock together and bond forming a hard permanent ceramic type seal.
- What are the dosage recommendations?
1 to 1.9 gallon cooling capacity uses 1⁄2 bottle.
2 gallon to 6 gallon cooling capacity uses 1 bottle.
Larger systems use 1 bottle for every 5 gallons of coolant capacity.
- I accidently added the Bar’s Leaks Head Gasket Repair into my gas tank, what should I do?
Bar’s Leaks Head Gasket is only designed to be added to the cooling system. If the product is installed in the gas tank, the tank should be removed and cleaned out by a professional mechanic. Do not start or drive vehicle.
- I accidently added the Bar’s Leaks Head Gasket Repair into my engine oil, what should I do?
Bar’s Leaks Head Gasket Repair is only designed to be added to the cooling system. If the product is installed in the engine oil and the engine has not been started, in many cases you can remove the valve cover and drain the oil leaving the drain plug off. Then use an engine flush washing out the head keeping special attention to the oil return holes that run down to the oil pan. Clean these out and pour the engine flush down these holes flushing everything into the oil pan and out the drain hole. If the engine has been run, you need to take the vehicle to have a professional mechanic evaluate what can be done to clean the inside of the engine. This might include taking the engine apart to clean all of the parts.

“I don't know who developed Bar's Leaks Head Gasket Repair, but I'd take a bullet for the guy! I've always sworn by Bar's Leak products so when the oil turned milky in my '91 Chevy conversion van, I got a bottle of Bar's Leaks Head Gasket Repair and followed the directions to the letter. It was the best use of two days mechanicing I can remember. Thanks for another great product!”
“Your head gasket repair product saved me over $1,000 in repairs on my 2004 Impala. It worked exactly as advertised, great product.”
“I had a head gasket blown on my 1992 Chevy Lumina; it was going to cost me about $600.00 to $1000.00 to fix it. I bought a can of your product Head Gasket Repair & Block Seal, that only cost me 9.95. It fixed the head gasket. I saved a lot of money, Thanks to your product.”
“Last month driving to Oregon from Florida, my car blew a head gasket in Hermiston, Oregon. I put Bar's Head Gasket Repair in my 1996 Acura. I followed the directions EXACTLY. I drove on to Portland, Oregon and then back home to Tampa Bay, Florida. My car worked perfectly. My car now has 288,000 miles on it. Bar's Leaks is the greatest!”
“I have a 1996 jeep Cherokee with a 4.0 liter, with 233,000 miles on it. I blew a head gasket, and had the Jeep towed home to fix it, after taking the head off I discovered a bad #6 piston, after waiting a week for all the parts to come in and reassembly, (basically a in frame overhaul) after starting the engine and testing the engine, due to defective head gasket or a crack in the #6 bore? Water was in the oil. Upon the disappointment and all the time and money I spent on my Jeep, and knowing what the wife was going to say, I told you so!!" I remembered that there was a chemical to repair head gaskets without having to pull it apart again, so I went and got your block seal from Advance Auto Parts. Your product was $10.00 and it worked!!! You saved me so much you can't begin to even know how much! Thank you for your sealers that really work!”
“I've read several of your testimonials for your Bar's Leaks Head Gasket Repair and would like to add mine. Our kids in Vernal were having a problem with their 1999 Suburban overheating. They stopped driving it when they noticed that the oil color had changed. So on a recent visit, I checked it out. The oil was three inches high on the dipstick and looked like crème cappuccino. The 350 V-8 at idle sounded like a washing machine. The kids had been adding water to maintain the radiator fluid level and didn't realize they were filling up the crankcase with water! I've always had good luck with your products when it came to radiator leaks. With a new baby arriving that day, the kids were in no position for a $1500 head gasket replacement. So we looked up your products online and then took a trip to the store for Bar's Leaks Head Gasket Repair. I followed all the steps carefully, flushing the coolant system under idle, using a coolant system cleaner, removing all antifreeze and then adding Bar's Leaks Head Gasket Repair and running as instructed. When I drained the crankcase, more than two gallons of fluid came out! It took two oil filters and three oil changes to get the oil to run clear. I let Bars Leaks Head Gasket Repair set up overnight in an empty system, and then added all fluids to specifications the next morning. Since then the Suburban has been running smoothly for several hundred miles in hot weather, and both the oil and coolant systems have maintained their proper levels and composition. I just got a call from another son-in-law who has a blown head gasket. Guess what I'm recommending!”
“I purchased an older vehicle and right after I bought it I blew the head gasket. The mechanic quoted me over $1500 to repair it. That was almost as much as I paid for the vehicle. I was browsing online and noticed the Bar's Leak head gasket repair. I purchased it for around $15.00 and utilized it. That was over 8 months ago and I have yet to overheat. I was concerned with the summer and running the air conditioner. This product was a god send. Not only did it work but saved me a fortune on vehicle repairs. Thanks for making this product.”
“I have been a used car broker for 39 years and have bought and sold thousands of vehicles, many of which were in need of repair. Last month I bought a 2002 Buick Regal with a 3.8 L V-6 from the local auto auctions. It overheated on the way home and I had it towed to my mechanic. Th next day I got the bad news - Blown Head Gasket, $1200.00 fix! Well, I had to go to Autozone for something and saw your headgasket sealer display. I said what do I have to lose and picked your Head Gasket Repair product. I took the bottle home and followed the instructions exactly all along expecting no good results. To make a long story short, the car ran perfectly within 3 hours. I put it in the newspaper the next day and believe it or not sold it to another auto broker for a good profit! You made a believer out of me with that product and saved me $1200+. Thank you and I'll always tell my many dealer friends about your product.”
“Just a note to let you know your stop leak worked perfectly. I drained the cooling system until it ran clear water the the 17 step process began. The head gasket leak on the '93 Transport was completely closed and saved on a $600.00 repair bill.”
