i got what looks like a small leak between the block and head on the xf ute. its really tiny though, a few little bubbles no bigger then bubbles in a fizzy drink really. however, its still leaking.

i'm not keeping the car for much longer so i'm wondering rather then replacing the whole head gasket, has anyone used that block sealer stuff you pour into your radiator. i've used it once before and it was awesome but that was on a little laser.

need some feedback from anyone thats used it in a falcon.

its got no coolant in the block yet, and its not really over heating, never goes further then half way on the gauge. havent done a compression test yet.
