Head Gasket Problems

Rating: 5/51

FALL RIVER, MASSACHUSETTS -- STUFF WORKS. I was noticing white smoke and my tachometer was fluctuating when I would start my 2003 Chevy Monte Carlo back in 2013. Went to see my mechanic and he told me a head gasket to do it right it's gonna cost about $1200. Bought Steel Seal, cleaned my radiator and changed my oil. Followed the directions on 11/05/2013 with 83,000 miles and til today 08/03/2016 with 99,512 miles still running good. Thank you STEEL SEAL.

PHOENIX, ARIZONA -- I love this stuff! I can honestly say even though it's a total band-aid, it saved me thousands of dollars. I have a 1997 Camry and it's held up for almost 4 months now. If it does not work for you, then you don't know how to follow directions. User error is not Steel Seal's fault.

ROCHESTER, NEW YORK -- Steel seal works for me. My van was putting white smoke. MY neighbor saw it and confirm what I was thinking. Head gasket problem - big money to fix. I remember SCOTTY KILMER mention STEEL SEAL so I order the product. I followed the instruction as it said its works. Steel seal save me lots of money, I will recommend it.

Used it on my 2004 BMW which was pushing white steam out of my exhaust. In about 2 hours my heater stopped working and my heater core started leaking into my floor on the passenger-side!!! It cost me over 950 bucks to have the heater replaced! This product is very bad. When I called I had to leave a message, them they never called me back.

WASHINGTON -- Ordered product online, took money through PayPal, product arrived, strange, no receipts or package list, just a FedEx box. Tried product as per instructions step by step. Did not work even a little. Tried contacting Steel Seal which is hard to find and finally found an email that answered. I ask for my 100% money back and now I have to remove parts from my car, spend money to replace that part and spend more on shipping again and if they feel like it I might get my money back? Nice 100% guarantee.

Don't Use Steel Seal

I recently bought a 2003 Nissan Sentra GXE with the 1.8 engine for my daughter. The car has 109K miles, but is in perfect shape. After a few months I noticed that the car was using about 1 quart a week of antifreeze. I could not find any leaks, but after a while it began to blow white smoke out of the exhaust and I could smell antifreeze coming off the exhaust when it started up. Clearly I had either a blown head gasket or a cracked head. I called my mechanic it would be 14 hours labor (~$1000) to replace the head gasket + parts ($100-$200).

He told me the much better choice would be to do an used engine swap, since the labor to do that was actually a little less at 13 hours. He found one from a crash test car that had 216 miles for $1300, which would bring the swap to around $2500 with misc. parts. He said it would be a really bad idea to do head gasket, since most of the time he has seen other damage to the piston rings. For $1300 more, to go to a nearly brand new engine was clearly the way I intended to go. I did some research on Steel Seal. I was very skeptical, and was concerned it might cause other damage, but I thought I'd give it a try since I intended to swap out the engine if it did not work anyway.

I followed the instructions exactly, left it to cool down overnight. When I drove the car the next day, it appeared to do absolutely nothing to fix the car. The white smoke was not that bad, so I thought I'd drive it a few days and see.
On the 2nd time I drove the car all of the sudden when all the way up on the temperature gauge and the car started running badly. This rise in the temp. had never happened before.

I drove it a few and parked the car. After the car cooled down, I pulled the radiator cap. To my amazement, the radiator was completely plugged with a hard white polymer (note when I added the Steel Seal it was clean metal). Bottom line, now I need a new radiator too. DO NOT put this product in your car, you will be very sorry.
