Best Head Gasket Sealer For Headgasket Leaks
ks/ (visit my site for more tips)
Did your mechanic tell you your car has a headgasket leak? I get TONS of
questions like this everyday and many of them are NOT head gasket leaks. I
made this video to help you determine if you DO or DO NOT have an internal
The FIRST, FIRST, FIRST thing you need to do is get a cooling system
pressure test. This fast and cheap test will help you determine if you have
an internal or external coolant leak.
If you are absolutely sure there are no external leaks, and the radiator is
not restricted and the electric radiator cooling fans are working, then try
this awesome sealer.
The product is called Engine Block Sealer, made by K&W. They have the old
version in a hard metal can and their new and "improved" version in a green
plastic bottle called Nano Technology. Both seem to work just fine.
I do not personally use the product as the instructions on the can say
(been using it my way for years with a 75-80% success rate and its much
My instructions for using K&W Block Sealer are:
1. Drain out all coolant from radiator as you possibly can.
2. Get a bucket and mix up the block sealer with tap water
3. Pour contents of the bucket into the radiator, top off with tap water
4. Then put 500 miles on the car as soon as you can
5. After 500 miles drain out the mix and reinstall coolant and water as
The seal should be permanent
You will NOT have boil over or freeze protection during this time period so
please keep the engine from freezing and overheating.
And no, I do not remove the spark plugs or the thermostat as the can says..
Just the steps above.
Hope this helps, visit my sites for more cool tips and information

problems. This one did.
Bought a kit from Napa to test the Headgaskets on a 1998 Cadillac Deville
for leaks. The test shows there is a leak.

Mixing one of the biggest and smoothest V8s GM ever produced with
mirror-like paint and a spacious, comfortable interior, this classy DeVille
puts a new twist on 'Standard of The World'. And if you've always dreamed
of owning a big American cruiser that's high on style and loaded with
comfort, it's just the opportunity you've been waiting for!
Not completely devoid of character, like so many traditional, frame-off
restorations, this road-ready drop-top is an exhilarating combination of
factory-correct blitz and tasteful glam. Appearing both solemn and
official, its Jet Black paint reflects an excellent shine that literally
glows when crouching under the sun. And that modern two-stage covers what
appears to be clean, mostly original sheetmetal which displays no sign of
botched repairs or historic damage.
Cadillac, once the world's leading proprietor of fine, 16-cylinder motor
coaches, knows a thing or two about performance. For example, this
convertible's correct, 472 cubic inch monster block, which is one of the
largest V8s ever produced, turns stout 10 to 1 compression into a smooth
And while GM Powertrain did provide engines that generated more power, this
mill was designed to idle silently, create instantaneous thrust and emit
merely a whisper from its tailpipe. Judging by the appearance of the car's
satin black bay, it's been on a regular maintenance schedule, benefitting
from periodic, full-scale detailing. Many of the motor's original ancillary
items have been replaced by flashier hardware including: a chrome,
single-snorkel air cleaner, chrome valve covers, a polished radiator
overflow and an HEI distributor that's complete with 8mm Hi Temp wires. And
thanks to two Optima gel cell batteries, the car fires so smoothly you may
not even notice it's running.
Behind that big engine, an original turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed spins a traditional
GM 12-bolt that's complete with smooth 2.98 gears. Speaking of smooth, the
car's long and low suspension, which is augmented with Air Ride
Technologies air bags, glides over almost any imperfection with virtually
no drama. And all that proven hardware rolls on slick Centerline Smoothies
which spin 245/40R20 Firestone Firehawks around detailed Cadillac crests.
If you're a fan of big time comfort, you'll be absolutely thrilled by this
DeVille's custom black interior! The '63 Cadillac front and chopped rear
seats are firm, supple and display virtually no signs of aging. In front of
those half power, half manual seats, a modernist, crack-free dash hangs a
contoured instrument panel between a billet mirror, a modern Pioneer CD
player, controls for the car's Air Ride Technologies suspension and
chrome-trimmed foot pedals. In front of the driver, a custom '59 Cadillac
steering wheel spins a chrome horn ring around a tilting column and simple
chrome gear selector. And behind the passengers, a Dynamat-lined trunk
seals a giant subwoofer behind a Pioneer CD changer, two JL Audio amps, a
small bass tube, a fifth Centerline/Firestone combo and a small, South
County Customs jack.
This DeVille is an extremely high-quality cruiser with no question marks
attached. Don't miss your opportunity to own one of the coolest Caddys on
the planet! Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com today.

What I have to say about the 1998 Seville: The Seville is a very luxurious
car. I have to say material quality was up to Lexus Like quality and
everything was soft to the touch. Power comes from a heavy duty 4.6 L V8
which provides decent acceleration and pretty good power too. Luxury is not
disappointed in this Cadillac with luxury features such as Full Powered
Seats and Heated Front and Rear Seats. Clear easy to read gauges are also
standard. All in all very good car from Cadillac

if your about to do this job your self please watch and you will have a
good understanding of how to do it. or at least whats involved.
This was a weekend project and i thought i would document it for fun... and
to help others.
This would have cost me between $1200-$1600 as a local shop. depending on
where i took it.
i did this job my self for just over $200 including the fallowing:
head gasket kit
new head bolts
new coolant reservoir
new spark plugs
RTV Black sealant
Quick set epoxy
and some coolant system flush.
for me it was better than buying a new car...
lets hope it lasts...
God bless and have fun!
Some time life throws you curve balls... for me i swing hoping to hit it

Cadillac head gasket repaired
You check for leaks and everything looks good. Your mechanic checks the
cooling system and also finds nothing wrong. In fact, most Cadillacs can
idle all day and not loose a drop of coolant or overheat. However, as soon
as you get on the freeway the temperature starts to go up and the low
coolant light appears again. When you check the coolant level it's very
low. Frequently requiring a gallon or more to refill. Without any clear
indication as to what's causing the problem your mechanic may suggest
replacing various cooling system components. Again, this may resolve the
problem for a while, but soon the low coolant light re-appears. What to do?
