My head gasket started to fail the week before Thanksgiving, and this stuff kept me mobile through the holidays and long enough to get my tax return.
In fact, it probably would have lasted even longer, but i just flushed the cooling system and now the leak is back.
This product doesn't transfer heat nearly as well as antifreeze. Your heater will produce less heat, and your engine will run warmer than usual. I don't know if this is because it clogs stuff up, or just the nature of the formulation. Having said that, i wouldn't recommend this product for the summer months. It should also be said that while it hasn't done any permanent damage (heater core and engine temps are now back to normal,) it also hasn't permanently fixed anything either.
One star off for false claims of 'permanent repair,' but it certainly does work. If you're far from home or in a tight financial spot when your gasket starts to fail, this will get you where you need to go. Just make sure you start tucking some money aside for a permanent fix as well.
I flushed my cooling system prior to using Bars. I flushed it until the water was pure, which took hours, but it's worth the time to cleanse out rust and deposits. Make sure you follow EPA guidelines for disposal of used antifreeze.
Follow the directions on the bottle EXACTLY as specified. Otherwise, the product will not work. It's been documented the directions must be strictly adhered to.
It's been three weeks now, and the leak is non existent. I have not lost any antifreeze in over 3000 miles and counting.
Thank you Bars for this excellent product. I highly recommend it.
$30 and 2 hours later, pretty much all the symptoms have disappeared. Engine light is off, no rough/low idle, and no more hesitation when accelerating. Just follow the directions to a T, take the time necessary (approx 2 hours), and drive it gently for a while and it'll definitely get you from point A to B until it can be fixed properly.
*Quick 3-month Update*: After 3 months and quite a few miles (my daily commute went from <5 miles a day to ~42 miles a day), this is still working well. Haven't flushed the coolant with the Bars in it yet.
