I'm sure the post was refering to the GM Cooling System Seal Tabs
part # 3634621 (6) Crush them up and install in the lower radiator hose.
not in the surge tank. Use 50/50 antifreeze and distilled water.

They seal any leaks from porous castings in the block, manifold or heads. They are precautionary but mandatory in the 4.1, 4.5 & 4.9 as any leaks can put coolant in the oil (not a good thing). You can also get them at Walmart, Napa and such. Look for Barsleaks product HDC or the powdered version G12BP http://www.barsproducts.com/product.cfm?id=16.

I bought a pack with of 6 from the local Caddy dealer and they told me to use all 6 in my 89 Seville. 4.5 engine, but I got a radiator cap so I crushed them and put them in the radiator "cold" then ran it till the thermostat opened 3 times.

And don't do a flush. No need. You do not want to introduce tap water into the system. Unless you have a pluggage, there is no need to flush. Just drain and refill.

You got it.

About putting a pic by your name...if you are posting, you are a member. At the moment, pics aren't showing next to anyone's name. This happened a couple months ago when the server was being switched. It seems to have happened again. When you start seeing the pics again, just go to User CP, and then to...

Just tried to get there in a separate window. I can't find where to add avatar. I did mine in January of 2003. I can't remember now. Anyone know?

Lower hose is recommended but the top is easier access. That's the one I used. Either will work.
