    Sealant tabs

    Hi I have a 93 SeVille STS.. I have a slight coolant leak.I don't know where its coming from but every couple of weeks the low coolant message comes on.
    I bought a pkg of those pellets. I dont think putting them in the coolant overflow tank is the best thing to do.There is no radiator cap that I can see. Should I pull the visible upper hose and drop them in there.. I dont want to clog the thermostat..
    Thanks George

    no radiator cap. those things do more harm than good. they gum up everything. start sniffing around for a leak.

    The sealant tablets go into the lower radiator hose on the northstar system. Here is the shop manual warning for the Northstar:
    -------------------
    This engine uses DEX-COOLŪ and GM coolant supplement (sealant) P/N 3634621 specifically designed for use in aluminum engines. Failure to use the engine coolant supplement (sealant) and the approved coolant antifreeze could result in major engine damage. When refilling the cooling system, add three pellets of the engine coolant supplement sealant GM P/N 3634621 to the lower radiator hose
