Features of usage and selecting the best radiator stop leak

  1. Some types of such products can be used only for small leaks as a temporary measure, for instance, to get to a car service station. The cooling system will have to be thoroughly flushed after this. Otherwise, the throughput capacity of the channels and pipes may be impaired, which will lead to lowering the heat-exchange efficiency causing overheating of the power unit. But there are radiator sealants with long-term action. They do not affect operation of the cooling system, as they are activated only when leaking out, that is why they can be used not only for repair, but as a preliminary measure. Take these details into account when choosing this type of car chemicals
