Default ATP AT-205 Re-Seal Stops Leaks, 8 Ounce Bottle

Not sure whether my oil pan gasket or main seal is leaking, I went ahead and used this today.

Has anyone used this? What do you think?

A little late to ask know don't you think?

In general, this is a terrible idea.

Is it working for you?

Yea, I probably wouldn't do that. My rear main seal is going too, might have to be the next thing I tackle.

lol

There are a lot of good reviews from Amazon.com. Even Scott Kilmer recommended it.
With that said, I gave it a shot and thought it was a good idea to share with you guys.

My car is running fine after putting a bottle in the oil filler, thus far. I haven't had a chance to check and see if it stops leaking yet. Tonight when I stopped and parked, I could hardly hear the sound of my engine; not sure if it's the stuff that did it or just my imagination. lol

Why would it not be a good idea, just curious.

I have used it a few times in mine. The leak slowed but never stopped it. That was about 4 years ago. The risk factor was not worth it being that my upper pan gasket wasn't leaking that bad. It did not damage the engine. Would I try it again, no. Your best bet is to just get the gasket fix if it is leaking to the point you have to add oil in between changes. If not just let it leak. I get to my leaks when I have time but none of them have been that bad that i had to fix it right away.
