K-seal in the engine?

I put a bottle in earlier this year and it stopped a problem with the gasket then. Problem has reared its head again.

Should I put more in the engine? The only reason I don't tear the head gasket off now is that the car is my daily and I need to find a good time to pull everything apart. How long can I go with this, do you guys think?

Afraid you're delaying the inevitable. Better to down it and fix it right than risk further damage !

I would do anything you can to tear it down now. I don't know how k-seal is but I once saw a motor treated too many times with bar's leaks. It was nasty inside.

Just my .02, I wouldn't put ANY of that crap in my engine!! Fix the problem before you end up with a bigger and costlier problem..

If you get all the tools and parts together you can do this job in a day easy.

I would just knock it out as soon as you can.

Talked to a friend of mine, works on LS motors like it's his job.

Telling me the same thing you guys are, I'll go ahead and slap some new gaskets in, thanks guys

Throw some J-B weld in it. It’ll go straight to the leak and seal it. ��
