Yes

But there are far superior products available to repair the headgasket with!

i tried it on my 1992 Chevy cavalier head gasket. it was leaking on the right front side as most 2.2's of this year do. i used it twice, but didn't work for me. i usually use K & W block seaker which works, but was told by the owner of the junk yard i got 2 leaky engines from it worked.... Next time i'd recommend K & W block sealer which does work and this is from experience ....

If you remove the head then of course you replace the head gasket.Where can you get sodium silicate to fix a blown head gasket?Know that adding sodium silicate to an engine is only a temporary fix for a blown head gasket and will not permantly fix the problem. The only permanent fix is to replace the head gasket. I would never add any head gasket fix material to any engine.

Any company that makes cardboard boxes uses sodium silicate to seal their boxes. Sodium silicate is a glue; however, I would check with an automotive supplier of parts. They should have the properly sealer for a head gasket. The best and only way to cure a blown head gasket is to replace it with a new one. by cobbling it up with sodium silicate you are just prolonging the problem and maybe causing more damage. antifreeze will destroy your engines bearings if it gets into your oil which in turn ruins the crank. you should also get the head magna fluxed for cracks and checked for straightness. be sure to check the blocks deck to make sure its clean & straight as well.

No, There are products that are made to temporarily fix leaking radiators but the pressure involved with a head gasket leak just cant be plugged by a free flowing additive.

The head must be removed and resurfaced. A blown headgasket is, for all practical purposes, ALWAYS the result of a warped head. A machine shop can resurface the head then a new headgasket can be used when the head is replaced. Unfortunately there are plenty of other pieces that must be removed/replaced as a part of the process. If you want to do it yourself you might want to have an experienced helper to show you how.

No, nothing will fix a blown head gasket except replacing it. Sealer are only used in an emergency situation as a temporary fix.

It depends on what you mean by 'blown'. If it is the cylinder head gasket or the core plugs that have blown then you probably can. If you have a connecting rod through the crank case then no you can't.
