    If anyone ever tells you to use that blue devil head gasket sealer the first thing you should do is punch them in the throat.

    Then if you decide to proceed hear me now and believe me later. Take your thermostat out first. Even if you use the pour and go which tells you that taking the stat out is not required. Bullshit!

    I now have not only the thermostat that is jacked but the water pump is ruinedand now on my garage floor as well.

    Tried to save some money and then the fuckening happened and it was strong. Not only am I out a water pump and a thermostat, may as well change theserpentine and ac belt while I'm in there but my $70 worth of sealer is nowrunning down the street into a fucking storm drain.

    I dont know how but this is tigas fault.

    This shit came highly recommended and I've read a lot of good stuff from independent sites so figured I'd give it a shot. Upon further review I'm pretty sure my water pump is still good. Now I have to figure out why the water wont move through the block.

    Pretty certain I'm getting exhaust gas into the coolant reservoir which is bad enough. I've got flow from the top of the radiator out the bottom. I'm almost stumped.

    If you have a head leak, then yeah.

    Wouldn’t it be possible if you have a bad head gasket that there wouldn’t be enough pressure to move the water where it should go?

    Possible but it's not that bad yet

    White, but only when the coolant is really low, put more coolant and smoke goes away. Oil not milky either

    Always gotta be one
