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.

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

I came to this website to make sure my store had Alumaseal in stock and it said they did, it still says they do, but they don't? So instead of getting the 3 dollar stuff that has always worked for me, I got the 10 dollar stuff that almost left me stranded. 1st, to be fair I did have leak, a very very slow leak. I had to add a quart of water every three or four times I drove the car and as hard as I tried, I couldn't see the leak to repair it correctly. I put it in and took my mother to dinner. By the time we got there 6 miles, water and copper specks were spraying out of my water pump and the temp was going up (both mine and the cars). Clearly the copper and liquid crud had eaten up what was left of the seal. Please remember the slow leak had been going on for over a year, so clearly it caused the major leak. After we ate I added some water and drove home just making it before I reached Def-Con4 on the temp gauge. The only good thing is I now know where my very slow leak was, the bad news is this very dangerous stuff in in my cooling system and may ruin the new water pump or other stuff!

    My 1997 Ram 2500 V8 sprung a leak out of nowhere coming from somewhere behind the alternator. A big one. So, i took a shot with this stop leak first and im glad i did. Within 1 minute, the leak slowed. In 3, it slowed to a slow drip. In 5, there was 1 drip every 30 seconds. After a trip around the block, no leak whatsoever. This was a miracle, it worked in -5 degree weather when i couldn't work on it! Great product. Would use it again and again and again.

        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.

                      Hi Todd, glad to assist you! Dosage: Use – 1/2 (half) bottle in a small cooling system, such as 4 cylinders with no A/C. For other small systems use approximately 3 ounces per gallon of cooling capacity. Use 1 bottle for regular size systems, which are most 4, 6, 8 and 10 cylinder engines. In larger systems, use 1 bottle for every 6 gallons of cooling system capacity. For more information, please copy and paste this technical data sheet link.

                    About a year ago my heat stopped blowing hot. Not a big deal as I live in Florida. I have always had a very tiny drip after driving in one freeze plug. Now my radiator has a small leak that I can't see exactly where it's coming from. It's a 99 dodge durango 5.2L 4x4 that before me was severely abused. So much work has been done to it and I am out of cash for a radiator. It get's hot after about 20-30 minutes of driving. Will this product be ok for this 223K mile engine? And will this be simple enough to do as I am an older female?

In larger systems, use 1 (one) bottle for every 6 gallons of cooling system capacity.

I believe I also have an intake gasket leak. However, as this is my primary mode of transportation I will not be able to get to replacing the gasket for a week or so. Is the purpose of this product to stop/slow these types of leaks? Also, once I get around to replacing the gasket, will this product create a hard to clean mess in the engine around those leaking areas?

                      Sorry, Cain. Without the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it, nor provide you with a 100% answer. I would suggest that you take your vehicle and get it thoroughly checked by a certified mechanic before buying any parts that may/may not solve the problem.

                  • Q:

                    I have a Mustang GT with the 4.6. The wonderful plastic intake manifold cracked near the upper hose connector. Is my only option replacing the manifold or would the Stop Leak have a good chance of working. It's a vertical crack about an inch long.

                      I'm glad to assist you, John! The leak length is not a major concern, the width of it is what matters. The Liquid Copper can seal up to a .005 (5 thousands) crack.
