that is plain stupid anyone who tries deserves the problems incured by doing so!!!!!!!! Well from one stupid person to another I have tried thermagasket product on both my vehicles with great success (BWM and Mercedes Benz). Reparing both vehicles the traditional way (head gasket job etc....would cost more then the FMV). Anyways I tried the thermagasket on my BMW almost 2 years ago and was doing very well until the car overheated again because of failure water pump and auxillary fan. I re-introduce thermagasket to my BMW last night June 18, 2008 and it plugged the exhaust leak pressure and overheating. Raced car to about 80 MPH for 30 miles and drove it back home with no overheating or compression issues. Like I said tried it almost 2 years ago and the overheating occurred not because Thermagasket fail but because of a mechanical problem in the cooling system.

What is the difference between a cracked block and a blown head gasket?

A cracked block means that the engine itself is cracked. A blown head-gasket means that the gasket between the engine and the head has blown. Either can be caused by overheating the engine. When an engine overheats the head can warp causing the head-gasket to give out. In some engines the heat cracks the block. If the block is cracked, it's over. If the head-gasket is blown you can always machine the head surface and put it all back together.

How do you repair a blown head gasket or cracked head?

A blown gasket can be repaired by replacing the gasket...if you are talking about the head gasket, then you have to remove the cylinder head from the engine block and replace the gasket that is inbetween them. Cracked heads generally have to be replaced because they are made of aluminum which cannot be repaired permanently once it is cracked.

If you suspect the head and/or the block, have them "magnafuxed" by a machine shop. On the other hand, as you're pulling it apart, check the head gasket and if it's shot, there is usually only the one problem.
