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

    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.
    Dan

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