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 ....

Where can you get sodium silicate to fix a blown headgasket?

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.

How do you fix a blown head gasket for a 1988 dodge ram 50 pickup?

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.

Why would a 1993 Plymouth sundance continue to overheat after having its thermostat replaced and its coolant refilled?

It could be a plugged radiator or a blown headgasket. Understand that many of the smaller, especially the Japanese engines are very fragile when it comes to overheating. If it overheated once you may have damaged the headgasket and warped the head. Don't forget the heater core either. If the engine warms up, but you don't get any heat, the core is blocked or plugged. Suggest you always replace the thermostat when you do coolant work. They're cheap and a quick fix.
