Liquid head gasket repair claims

I would like to get some feedback regarding the use of this product,While I agree that the long term repair should consist of a teardown and replacement of the defective/worn part,the enticement of saved labor and cost cannot be ignored.

This repair should only have to last for ~3 months or so.

The specific brand I am questioning is Bar's.I have heard conflicting results on various brands both pro and con.

Is this a viable quick fix or will I see my hard earned dollars exit the tailpipe as a white fog?

This vehicle was purchased used,it has 78,000 miles and has had the transmission rebuilt.

I really do not want to replace the bad head gasket,never mind doing it right and replacing both.

Any advice would be welcome.
