2008 SRX-V8, 1991 Eldorado
Not that it would do any good now, the supplement is intended to go into the lower radiator hose, not the expansion tank...ever!rfishing said:Mechanic added Bars Leak GM Tabs to the radiator black tank, with radiator cap on it (not the radiator, or hose). I questioned them about that and they told me it would be fine putting the stuff in there. I just took cap off and the stuff is clumped up inside there. What to do?
It does not make any difference now anyway because it will not help a bit, even if it were to make it through the cooling system. You can flush it out with a garden hose at this point.
I suspect the problem you are having finding an engine in your area is that the STS was probably not a popular vehicle in your area which translates to not any in local salvage at this time. The STS is NOT the same as SLS or DeVille, or Eldorado STD for 1994. It is only matched to the Eldorado ETC or Seville STS. They use a different transmission, and different computer modules compared to the other models.
Chances are very good that you don't need a complete engine anyway. What you do need is the Time-Sert job done properly. Yours will not be the only one to go back for a second time. If the Time-Sert job was incomplete, or heli-coils were used at last repair, the job was done wrong.
