pretty sure mines got a blown gasket or cracked head

so gonna put some chemiweld through it to see if that will fix it for a week or two


does anyone have any tips for getting it done right?

in most other cars can just dump half the coolant and fill halfway with the chemiweld added to get the heat upto the right tempreture

but bit hard to do with a system that is refilled by the reservoir

so yeah any tips would be good :)

putting chemiweld is something i would only do if you were going to get rid of the car to hide the blown gasket..
in some cases it will block the radiator and can clogg up water galleries ect..

and when or if you decide to replace the gasket its nearly impossable to get the stuff out of the head and block...

but its your car so its up to you.....

i need the car driving to be able to pick up the new engine
hence why i said i only need it driving for a week or 2

the engine has a bottom end knock and i have had other issues
so im definitely replacing it

i was just after some tips on adding it to the system so it will effectively do its job
but ill see how it goes
cheers anyway lol

not chemiweld, i would use that other stuff it is a bronze/watery bottle you shake it and it is thinner and less of a prick. but only one thing.
