Is it possible to repair blown head gaskets with chemical additives?
We had our Caravan repaired last year with a product called ThermaGasket. We have put 35000 miles on the vehicle without any problems!
More than likely you will have to remove the head but, you can try injecting a product such as Seafoam or Techron into the engine through a vacuum hose and it may or may not work.

First off you stop driving the vehicle immediately. Otherwise you will destroy the engine. If the repair shop is within a couple of miles from your home and the engine is not overheating drive it there for repair. If it is over a couple of miles have it towed. You will have to have the head/heads removed and the gaskets replaced. You may also have to have the head resurfaced or replaced. This is a…
The lower intake manifold gaskets on 3800 engines are likely to go bad at around 80,000 miles. This is caused from the gaskets being made with rubber and being eaten away by the "So-Called Dexcool" coolant.
