I developed a quart a week coolant leak from my 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis. It was coming from a crack in the small coolant tower integral to the non-metallic intake manifold. These cars were subject to a class action lawsuit against Ford for this problem. I was too late to be covered for this $800 repair so I poured in half of the 10 oz. bottle of the radiator stop leak before a 700 mile trip last week. Leak stopped cold. Thanks, guys. - M.

“I heard of your products before, but never had to use it until just a few days ago while I was on the 2010 Hot Rod Power Tour. My 1968 Camaro's radiator started to leak on the tour and I thought I was done and would need to replace the radiator at a cost of around $500 before I could get back home. I purchased a bottle of your Bar's Leak radiator stop leak and almost like magic the two holes in my radiator stopped leaking. I was able to drive the car from southern Illinois to north of Minneapolis without even one drop of coolant being lost. Thanks for a wonderful product and I would suggest to anyone that is going on a trip to have a bottle of this product in their trunk for an emergency. Even if you don't use it, there maybe someone out there that just might.”
“Hi, well here it goes, I drive a car that has a lot of miles, over 200 thousand on it. Well I had a leak that wasnt huge just really bad. Well Im not going lie about it I did use other things from homemade things to over the shelf products with good things talk about. Then I went to my local auto parts AUTO ZONE and told the clerk my problem and the clerk took me to your product. I had a lot of questions but I was told by the clerk it was the best there was for what was wrong with my car. I used it like the directions said, you can say I havent been happier with a product, it really did what it said WOW really WOW. My car doesnt over heat, and it doesnt leak! I have my car back, before I found your product, it was 3 gallons of anti freeze a month. Well in the end of things you have a great product here, this is the first time Ive ever did a testimonial for anything. Thanks!”
“After roughly 270,000 miles, my 1993 Crown Vic developed a small radiator leak. Poured in a bottle of your radiator leak stop, drove for a couple of days and coolant level has remained constant ever since. Great product, works as claimed, which is rare in today's market place.”
“For your product I thank you very much. Me and my girlfriend went out on Valentine's Day and we were stuck in traffic and the car started smoking. We pulled off and got the car stopped for a while and went to the nearest station and saw that the radiator was cracked, I went in the store and they had 2 bottles of radiator stop leak left. I purchased both of them (because I have a V-8) and poured both of them in and took off. We drove for 70 miles to the house and it still works great!!! Thanks Bar's Leaks!”
“I just wanted to tell you a testimony on your product. I poured in the bottle last night, and drove for about 30 minutes as the direction suggested, and voila, my radiator was full of water this morning. I was amazed, because I was pouring two gallons of water in the radiator every day, because people had said that these products clog the heater core.; But, when I searched your site and read FAQ, I was assured your product will pass through the number 24 screen which big three cars have, so I decided to try, and I am very pleased; I bought another bottle just in case I need to add more, but I didn't need to. I will probably use it next year again as you suggested for maintenance.”
“I want to comment on your Bar's Leaks Radiator Leak sealant. I had a very small leak on my '02 Silverado, and was adding coolant every week. I was afraid I was going to have to pay a mechanic hundreds of dollars to tear my engine apart in order to find the leak. I read about your product on another web site, so I thought I'd give it a try. So, I topped off my coolant and added your product. One week later, my coolant level is exactly where I topped it off at. Thanks for making a great product, and saving me lots of money.”
“This product really helped me out, I had a cracked cylinder head and for a second I thought it wasn't gonna work but just had to pay really close attention to the directions, my last step was putting more antifreeze in the radiator and ever since it has stopped leaking, in at 186,000 miles with a 01 grand Cherokee Laredo, will update any changes in the future. Thanks for the help amigos! Saved approximately 1000$-1500 on parts and labor.”
