    Post Bar's permanent head gasket fix ready to damage parts and engine

    BARíS PERMANENT HEAD GASKET FIX by BARíS PRODUCT INC, Holly MI 48442
    Permanent Fix is a ruse!
    On March 2013, I added to my coolant Barís Permanent Head Gasket Fix, because of a small and intermittent coolant leaks
    First, it clogged everything, all the cooling system parts and passages, heater core, water pump, thermostat and radiator and caused extreme overheated to the engine and followedto put the engine out of commission for overheated
    Now I have to install a new engine or junk the car
    Total parts damaged including engine $ 7,000.00
    Complaint and DEMAND OF PAYMENT to Fred Mannix, Barís Products Inc, Holly MI 48442 went nowhere and denied payment
    I bought BARíS at WAL-MART, but if you read everything on the bottle is just a product comparable to a magic ball
    ALL LIES!
    Where did you find a mechanic in a plastic bottle?
    I spotted many people on the internet having a conflict of interest, making money reselling Barís Permanent Head Gasket Fix online and also on E-Bay
    I respect people comments, but it doesnít mean that some opinions posted are right and mostly are fakes reviews
    People working for BARíS PRODUCTS INC, Holly, MI, protected under different names, posted fakes opinions and reviews on the Internet
    In fact, I submitted to Wal-Mart, 5 times a warning on BARíS PRODUCTS INC for potential customer that might buy the products without having knowledge of its devastating results, but WalMart never posted it
    Itís like a lottery ticket, chances are that you may lose your money and lose big on Barís Head Gasket Fix, because of the damages on the engine and clogged parts
    Today you have your car running and tomorrow who knows!
    But Wal-Mart keeps rejecting my complaint on the product in order not to lose sales and also protecting Bar's Products Inc, Michigan the maker of Bar's Permanent Head Gasket Fix
    So Wal-Mart' keeps selling it, even when is having knowledge of its failure and being a defective product

    Magic elixirs that repair HG's are also called Hope-In-A-Bottle for a reason. Too bad you didn't come here first. We'd have warned you.

    That said, you should be able to flush that crap out and repair the threads and insert or stud the block and replace the HG's for a LOT less than $7000.

    P.S.

    Dear Sir
    You can read on Bar's Permanent Head Gasket Fix:
    Permanent Fixes Cooling System Leaks, use on hard to stop leaks, even on Northstar Head Gasket and other severe leaks intake gaskets
    Use with all types of coolant, obviously Bar's deceived people, telling people of its fantastic results printed on the bottle and its websites
    Bar's found a niche on this economy and on people needs and is ready to jump on it and take as much money as they can
    and if something goes wrong, you are on your own - I found that more that 60% goes wrong by using Bar's Permanent crap and people like me have to junk the car

    If something sounds too good to be true, it is.

    All such are 'if all else fails' products. Why not?

    Too late I found out that Bar's Products Inc is located and hidden in a remote place in a hole down below (Holly, MI)
    How you can explain that a company doing well is going to be in the middle of nowhere, with more wild animals than people?
    Besides that, a responsible company will pay you for damages before its going to escalate out of proportion.
    Once the reputation is damaged because of wrong doing, it is going to stay there forever
    BAR'S PRODUCT INC looks too high, but it will go down, sooner rather than later

    Apparently you must be one of those people who believes if it is printed it must be true (including warranties). Let's face it though, they are not going to tell you not to buy their product because it won't work (even if they know it). Just look at the blatant BS that the hucksters spew about the Tornado and the fuel line magnet. It is such obvious junk that no one should fall for it, yet they do. Live and learn, but I still say that you do not have to junk the car because you put that snake oil into it. It CAN be repaired for much less than the price you quoted, allbeit a LOT more than a bottle of hope. Whether the car is worth the price of the repair though, is up to you.

    This entire thread - Am I the only person who smells a (troll) rat ???

    Curious that Bar's Leaks products have been in business since the 40's (???) and, if you use the recommended product under the recommended conditions for a recommended patch it all seems to work more or less OK - including the recently discontinued GM "cooling system supplement" tablets which were packaged by Bar's Leaks.

    Admittedly - and a "stop leak" product is a bandAid, not a "fix" - unless one is looking to flip the car and unload it, it should be properly repaired. Caveat Emptor.

    You can still get the cooling system tabs at NAPA.

    If you have a genuine concern about their claims, report it to the FTC.
