: Bars Leak to stop oil cooler issues

12-28-09, 09:16 PM
Ok, so in theory, Bars Leak does a decent job at fixing radiator and head gasket leaks. My thoughts would be that Bars Leak would help condition the seals in the oil cooler and stop it from leaking, right? I plan to fix it correctly soon, but until then, I think this should work, temporarily. Any thoughts?

I don't believe it is the seals that leak, its the metal cracking that causes the leak. If the oil seals leaked which are just crush washers the oil would be on top of the block rather then in the water/coolant.
