I used it on the ruptured seam of a motorbike petrol tank a few years and its still holding. I dare say it'd work just as well if both surfaces are cleaned first.

I used it to stop a leak in the transfer case to drive shaft on a 92 Eagle Talon.

Does stop leak work on the ford windstar timing chain cover leak?

I had a 95 3.8L that leaked and stop leak worked for a little while. The problem is as it gets worse it can leak antifreeze internally into the oil. This is at best a short term fix. If you use it keep a close eye on your oil level, if it starts rising or becomes milky the gasket will need to be replaced immediately. MGL

Can you use synthetic oil in a small Kolar engine?

If your engine leaks oil, no you should not use synthetic oil because it will clean sludge and can make the leak worse. If your engine does not leak oil, I would highly recomend using synthetic oil(Pennzoil Ultra 10W30 from Walmart is a good and pretty cheap choice). As long as your engine does not leak oil using synthetic oil is a great choice regardless of how old it is.
