Head Gasket Fix

Head Gasket Fix from Bar’s Leaks

Sponsored by BAR'S LEAKS

Owners of vehicles with blown head gaskets used to have two choices: fork over $1,500 to $3,000 for a mechanical repair or kiss the car goodbye. It was an especially lousy choice because most blown head gaskets occur in older vehicles that are often worth less than the cost of the repair.

All that changed in 2004, when Bar’s Leaks introduced a new chemical repair for blown head gaskets and severe cooling system leaks: Bar’s Leaks Head Gasket Repair. Head Gasket Repair was revolutionary — it stopped head gasket leaks by repairing the root cause and forming a bond stronger than the actual head gasket itself.

Who to trust? The chemical repair category has expanded, and now consumers have a range of head gasket solutions to choose from. How can you recommend the best solution? Start with a reputable company. Bar’s Leaks has been America’s most trusted cooling system stop leak brand since 1947. Our first head gasket leak repair patent dates back to 1950. Our products are made in the U.S.A. and come with a money back guarantee.

How to choose? Ask your customer a few questions:

Q: Can your vehicle run or be driven for 15 minutes without overheating?
A: If the answer is no, chances are that no chemical repair can save this vehicle. It needs physical repair by a licensed facility/technician. If the vehicle starts to overheat right around 15 minutes, recommend our strongest solution, Bar’s Leaks Professional Head Seal Blown Head Gasket Repair (p/n HG-1) or the original Bar’s Leaks Head Gasket Repair (p/n 1100).

Q: Can your vehicle run or be driven for 20 minutes without overheating?
A: If the vehicle can run a little longer, say 20 minutes, until it starts to overheat, Bar’s Leaks Head Gasket Fix (p/n 1111) should do the trick.

Q: How much work do you want to do/how much time do you have?
A: The fastest and easiest-to-use solutions are Bar’s Leaks Professional Head Seal Blown Head Gasket Repair and Bar’s Leaks Head Gasket Fix. Both are antifreeze compatible, so there’s usually no need to flush the cooling system. For the strongest solution/biggest leaks, the professional level product is best. For mild to moderate leaks, consider Head Gasket Fix. For customers who don’t mind doing more than a “pop and pour” and who want to save as much money as possible, Head Gasket Repair is a cost-effective choice. Because this product isn’t compatible with antifreeze, the vehicle cooling system needs to be completely flushed before and after installation. All three products work in vehicles using
any type of 50-50 mix coolant.

A common question an OEM oil supplier like ENEOS sees is how to tell when oil consumption becomes excessive? Since a few factors could be involved, here are some of the potential implications.

How much is too much?First, because of wear, vehicles are more likely to consume engine oil as they age. Common culprits that result in burning oil include worn valve stems, guides and seals, and piston rings, all of which can allow oil to seep into combustion chambers. If engine oil gets in the combustion chamber it will burn, possibly in amounts small enough not to produce telltale blue smoke in the exhaust, but enough to notice when you check the car’s dipstick.

The Value of Replacing the Water Pump and Timing Belt Simultaneously

Water pumps have long been considered the heart of a vehicle’s cooling system.
