I'd be interested in the results.


That sounds like the guarantee for the "5 minute Abs"..if you don't get that 6pk the first time, they send you out another 5mins for free!πŸ˜‚

Here's hoping it helps but realize it's a band aid. Eventually you're going to have to do those valve covers. That was my experience with stop leaks and a leaky valve cover. It stopped for a while then started to leak again and where the leak was, the oil was getting onto/into my alternator. That's when I decided to do it right and pull the valve covers. And yeah, it's easily a 4hr job because just about everything has to come off it seemed. Grrr...

Now have a real spare from best old tire. Real fun is putting those camber adjustment things in the upper suspension A frames. Owning this thing is love/hate thank you for comments and interest.



Was it the IAC valve aka Idle air control valve?

Sone contours and mystiques and probably cougars with the 2.5 had an issue causing a noise like moaning and was called moosing.


I'd buy Callahan autoparts if I could.

That pretty much sums it up. thumbsup After a little more thought I'd pass, and look for a product that offers a real money back guarantee, or even better bite the bullet and make the necessary repairs.

Leaky valve covers use gaskets, not elastomeric seals.

When discussing seals such as in engines, transmissions, and other driveline components, the context is that of using flexible, elastomeric materials to keep fluids contained within the mechanical system that have rotating components exiting the system, such as protruding rotating shafts.

For a gasket, the context is that of using a material (such as silicone or cork or composite), or some other material to keep fluids contained in and around stationary objects, such as the valve cover gasket on an engine or the pan gasket on an automatic transmission.

Both seals and gaskets "prevent" loss of fluids...

Conditioning seals refers to the following actions:

1) Increasing seal pliability due to Seal elastomer molecular replacement
2) Seal cleaning,

Today's synthetic formulations have pretty much solved the seal "shrink-swell" problem.

Stop leak fluids have little effect on Gaskets, so if you have a leak to the outside, it is usually due to a Gasket, not a Seal.

Now on older vehicles or vehicles with rear wheel drives, the most common fluid leak occurs because of a worn tailshaft seal, and is mostly seen when parking on an upslope where the rear of the vehicle is below the front.

On front wheel drive vehicles, the most common fluid leak is due to the pan gasket, in my experience.

The value of a scientific theory is its ability to prompt further study, not that it has any relation to the established facts of scientific reality.
