I've been advised by a motor factor shop that they have sold 50+ of this stuff and never had a failure on it.
Although, I recently know someone who used it and it failed after a month, but, I found out she had not put anti freeze in, and did not check the water again after filling it ...
Bit of a blow there buddy, head gasket down here would probably be a couple hundred or less.
Loads of back street mechanics who would whip that off / on over 2 days I would think.
Just keep asking around and you will find someone who doesn't mind a bit of work.
You could try steel seal I think...
I did the old disconnect with the MAF, you have to wait a while for it to get used to not having it before it settles down to normal idling.
It would still fall on the odd occasion for a couple of months after that, then it ran OK for the rest of the time I had the car.
Hi plmval, had to go up a size motor buddy for work.
Hello again Peter. I'm a Suzuki WagonR geezer these days mate, needed a slightly bigger vehicle for my work.
I still have a K11 1.3 auto which I use to check parts I rescue from the scrap yards, not much around these days though !!!!
