    For a while my 1999 Chevy Blazer leaked coolant, at first just a few drops a week. Then it progressed to me being able to see coolant coming out from under the car onto the ground after shutting the car off. My monthly routine of adding coolant to the reservoir and radiator turned into a weekly routine, at least. We will have this car paid off in February of 2011 and have already dumped a ton of money into it. My mantra for the last few months has been to spend no more big money on this thing. Just hold it together until it is paid off, at least.

    As time went on I would add coolant to the reservoir, drive it around long enough for the engine to get hot (has not overheated) and then returned home. I check the reservoir and poof, all fluid is gone, even minutes after coming home. All on the driveway.

    I went to Advance Auto and got Bars Stop Leaks, part #1109: Turn engine off and wait until it is cool enough to take Radiator cap off. Then, pour entire contents into radiator. This took longer than I would have thought, like 5 minutes, as the stuff is pretty thick. Then, top off with anti-freeze, which I was unable to do at first because the treatment is thick and takes a while to move. So I just put in as much anti-freeze as possible in radiator and also top off reservoir. Put the radiator cap back on. Turn heat on high and all the way into the red (hottest heat) then turn car on. Run for 5 minutes straight with heat on high. Then, turn car off, and when engine is cool enough, check radiator and top off fluid in both reservoir and radiator, as the 5 minutes with the heat on has allowed everything to circulate. I topped everything off on Saturday. It is now Monday and I have not seen a drop of anti-freeze and even the smell has disappeared. It has only been 2 days, so who knows. And for $3.00 or so I will continue to do this again and again if need be. But I am hopeful that this will work.

    Does not work

    this product did not work however the cheaper leak stop by Bars Leaks does seem to work at least partially.

    Clogs more than just leaks

        Comments about Bars Leak Liquid Copper Block Seal Intake and Radiator Stop Leak (18 oz.):

        I had a radiator leak and needed a quick fix while the radiator was being delivered. Dumped this goop into my radiator and the leak stopped long enough to get a new radiator. Later on, I found that my coolant reservoir was not draining into the radiator when it should. I took the hose out and found the clog. It was about five inches long and orange.

        Be careful with this stuff, it's works for a real emergency, but can cause unwanted clogs down the road.

          Comments about Bars Leak Liquid Copper Block Seal Intake and Radiator Stop Leak (18 oz.):

          1997 Park Ave. had developed a leak in one of the gaskets and was leaking coolant. Poured product in radiator and drove for 825 miles. It didn't immediately stop the leak, but by 825 miles after putting in coolant, the leak was totally stopped. I believe it really helped that I drove the car at operating temperature for 50 miles each time I ran the car. I think that made the product really work properly with a very hot coolant to adhere to the leaking gasket area. It saved me lots of money and also no down time with the car. This is just great stuff to just add to your coolant for the "just in case" leak as what happened in my case.

                Comments about Bars Leak Liquid Copper Block Seal Intake and Radiator Stop Leak (18 oz.):

                My 2001 Buick Century had been reliable transportation for members of my family since it was brand new. I recently invested new brakes, exhaust, suspension pasts, etc., into this car so my daughter could use it to commute to school. As soon as I put these parts into the car, it started raining coolant from out behind the timing cover. Now my girls college ride was worth about 10 cents per pound at the local recycler. Before I drove the Buick 3.1L V6 to the scrap yard, I took a shot at using Bar's Leaks Liquid Copper to seal the hidden hard to reach leak. I had used Bar's Leaks products in the past with success for minor radiator leaks but I had never heard of Liquid Copper or tried to seal this big a leak. For about 10 bucks, I thought why not give it a try. It was easy to use and IT WORKED! This engine is bone dry! No more coolant raining out from behind the timing cover! If you have a hard to reach, labor intensive / expensive coolant leak, give Bar's Leaks Liquid Copper a try. For me, it was like money in the bank!

                I had a real bad leak did not know if it was head gasket or crack in head or cylinder. Had a lot of water coming out the exhaust, and had to add a quart every 25 miles. But either which , this stopped the leak. This stuff works great!! I added it to the coolant overflow tank, it takes a little while longer for it to circulate through the system but well worth it. I did not have money for new head gasket but if it was a crack, i would of wasted money. SO now there is no more water getting into the cylinder,it was fouling the plugs real bad too. Now i actually have pressure in the cooling system, and my car runs about 20 degrees cooler.

                  I was skeptical at first on trying this. But I do not have the money to fix a small leak right now. The garage wanted $1000 to do it. I put this in and ran the engine as required. It has been three weeks and I no longer smell the anti freeze when I get out of my vehicle.

                    Had a small hole in a copper core radiator that was spraying coolant at the fan. Poured this product in, let it idle for 15-20 mins, drove it a couple miles and months later the leak is still sealed. I even had to drain the system recently for a new water pump and the product is still holding.

                        Hi T, glad to assist you! For best results Liquid Copper should not be installed in a regular overflow reservoir tank unless it has a screw on pressurized cap. If you do not have access to your radiator, remove top hose where it connects to the top of the radiator and install product in hose. Reattach hose and tighten clamp.

                        Hi Kyle, glad to assist you! Add 1 (one) bottle for regular size cooling systems, this covers most 4, 6, 8 and 10 cylinder engines. For small cooling systems, such as 4 cylinders with no air conditioning, use ½ (half) of bottle. For larger systems, use 1 (one) bottle for every 6 gallons of cooling system capacity.

                        Glad to assist, Erika! This will work fine with your application. It contains an antifreeze compatible sodium silicate liquid glass formula, so no draining of the cooling system is required. It will not harm the cooling system when used properly. Use with all types of 50-50 mix antifreeze including conventional green or blue (Silicate-based) and extended life red/orange or yellow (OAT /HOAT) coolant.

                      Will this work in a 2004 Volvo S60? If so, where do we pour it? The bottle says to pour it directly into the radiator, however, we see no way to access the radiator. Should we pour it into the coolant reservoir?

                        Hi Stacey, glad to assist you! This part should work fine on your 2004 Volvo S60. For best results Liquid Copper should not be installed in a regular overflow tank unless it has a screw on pressurized cap. If you do not have access to your radiator, remove top hose where it connects to the top of the radiator and install product in hose. Reattach hose and tighten clamp.

                        Hi Dyliano, glad to assist you! This Bars Leak Liquid Copper Block Seal Intake and Radiator Stop Leak may help but I would always recommend fixing the problem by finding out exactly the cause of leak and then replacing the necessary parts thoroughly checked by a certified mechanic.
