Can anyone suggest a good radiator sealant as mine has started to leak since putting in antifrezer?

Hang on, you asked for suggestions and I gave mine based upon my own experience, now you don't like it! Mad
I have used this stuff successfully in three or four different cars - that's why I suggested it.
You come across with that attitude and then wonder why no-one else has offered advice....

I second the motion for K seal. Make sure you pour it into one of the rad hoses as opposed to just bunging it into the header tank. This stuff works wonders.

Sincere apologies V6 . Didn't notice website address on your post.

Thanks for your help( you too 5cylinderman).
Didn't mean to upset anyone. Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year to all. Crying or Very sad

No sarcasm here (on this occasion...!)
Apology accepted. Peace and good will to all men, and all that guff. I hope you manage to get the leak sorted - K-Seal is good stuff!

Merry Chrimbo to one and all,
Alan Razz
