    Is this for your Headgasket problems, though you were getting it sorted.

    Can't really comment on the K-seal never used it. I try to stay away from products like this. Theres only one way to find out though :bust:

    Yes, booked in for Tuesday. But if this is a permanent cure for around £10, I'd rather stick some of this in than shell out £500 notes which I don't have.

    I emailed them & asked for my nearest stockist. It's got to be worth a try, and doesn't seem to have a prob with bunging up things it shouldn't, like Radweld can.

    I'd still get my timing belt done on Tuesday, as I was going to get that done anyway, but even if the head gasket gets a temporary cure with the K-seal, at least it'll give me a bit of financial breathing space(y)

    I'll give it a go & report the results, if I can get the stuff before Tuesday!

    It is a lot of Money, I doubt if I'd pay it TBH. Then again I'd do it myself but I've got the tools and space.

    You could probably pick up a TD with a good engine for £300, keep the engine and use the rest for spares or sell them on.

    Hope it works out for you anyway mate (y)

    I'd considered that, but the garage would charge me to remove both engines & refit one of them. Plus I'd have to get an engineless car back from the garage in order to strip it. I'd need to get a new timing belt fitted anyway, as I don't want to risk one snapping on me (again).

    I need to have transport I can trust, especially with having the baby.

    If I need to spend the £500, I'll just have to swallow it, I suppose:cry: . Everything apart from the engine is in good order.

    Are they changing the tensioners aswell? Hope you don't mind me asking, how much are they charging for the kit?

    I use the K-seal without any problems in everything ranging from landrover pourous heads to K series rovers with head gaskets with no ill effects,been supplying it to friends and stuff for over 18 months with no comeback.
