Water leak


#1

mercedes has water leaking thru what my mechanic believes is a warped head due to overheating. Would this be a place where I could try one of the stop leak products? Of so, which one would you recomend?


#2

Which engine are we talking about?

Those stop leak products are very unlikely to help if the head is really warped.


#3

Do not use stop leak!! It will not help and could plug your cooling system. If your mechanic cannot verify the leak is from a head gasket find a new mechanic. If it is in fact a head gasket / head problem get it repaired correctly. I understand this job will not be cheap but it will cost more in the long run if you do not fix it properly NOW!
