It's a pain. Well, it can be. You take off the intake piping, fan blade, fan shroud, power steering pump, then you get to take off the water pump (Which if you have the same engine as me in my S10, is pretty much the entire front of the engine). These bolts are shallow, and very easy to strip. If you're lucky enough to get that out, then you start taking off the intake, exhaust manifolds (Which the bolts also always rust and like to snap). There's a lot more to it, but that's the only areas I've ever heard of someone running into.

I put stop leak in it in December 2008 and the heater core was still clear when I traded it in back in July 2009.

Thumbs up

The Barrs stop leak product worked wonders I put it in the rad back in August to stop a slow but persistent leak. I had heat all winter and still no leaks and the heater is working fine. It is now mid April, i would recommend this product to anyone with an older vehicle that plans on driving it into the ground!

When I sealed mine, I used Prestone Stop Leak from Walmart. It did the trick!
