: 01 STS - Head Gasket - Perm or Temp/Quick Fix Solution

10-02-12, 10:52 AM
Hi everyone,

My 01 STS is done again. I bought it two years ago and head gasket blew on the first motor and because the price of fixing it was a lot cheaper to swap the motor, I did so. This new motor is now done as well, same head gasket problem.

Couple questions:

I'm in Ontario, Canada - Is their someone cheap that can replace the HG and get this running properly?
- If I decide to scrap the car, is their a good head gasket repair kit to temporarily fix it, just so I get a few more mths out of the car perhaps. I was looking at steelseal and rislone products.

Thanks everyone.

Go to Northstar Performance.com and research some options there. Local (AFAIK), and for a permanent fix, it's not too bad.
