    He said he had aluminum heads but not a Northstar. 4.1, 4.5, 4.9 had cast iron heads.
    I gotta know. What motor was it?

    Why does he not classify as a spammer?

    He dredges this Bar's rant up every few months - must have been a boring evening last night ......... I'll merge his essentially identical thread from Seville with this one. Lots of reading.

    Maybe you can impersonate Bar's?
    But, the problem is, that you need a course in marketing lies
    Some others entrepreneurs, like Bar's, claims to have a product for your car and model, made on order
    But, are you there to see the product preparation on your order?
    I suspect, it contains all the same stuff, but on different bottles, using different labels
    That is also the complaints I seen on Bar's products, same product on different bottles and adding a colorant
    Bar's owner is from Calgary, Canada and he is an expert in selling stuff like that

    ----------

    Yes, I'm having a boring time looking for jobs for Bar's people. Those old timers at Bar's will need a job, sooner rather than later

    I'm coming back to admit it doesn't work, for anyone else down the road who has to learn the hard way.

    The snake oil we tried was K&W Nanotechnology, not Bar's, because I found some reviews that seemed credible that said K&W and Blue Devil worked. (Despite warnings from everyone at this site!) We tried K&W. We knew it was a last shot, and we weren't going to do the HG repair, so it was a nothing-to-lose scenario. We flushed the system about a million times first, because everyone who had success said they flushed their system A LOT. Our snake oil didn't clog the cooling system, but it didn't fix anything, either. We did lose something, though-- a whole lot of time. Everyone on here who says don't try the snake oil-- is RIGHT!

    I don't need the course in marketing lies, YOU DO! You're the one that believed.

    Have you stopped taking your medication?
    Are you an escapee?
    Or just plain stupid?

    Re: Bar's Leaks "Head Gasket Repair"

    I purchased a 99 Eldorado two weeks ago. After the typical symptoms I figured out it had a blown head gasket. I added Bars head gasket fix (product # 1111) a week ago and so far it has stopped all leaking. I will come back to this thread periodically to let everyone know how long the patch holds. Maybe I truly had a blown gasket (not the head threads letting go) so it will continue to work.
    I have read a mixed bag of testimonials with some repairs lasting 2 years and counting. That is what I am hoping for.
