Yes, but very difficult. Dash will need to be pulled back enough to remove heter box. All day job.

Add this: you need to resolder the aluminum or copper pipe leak after you get the evap it out. Best be prepared to pressurize the coil to check for any other leaks before you reinstall it also.

BG chemicals and some other companies have a cleaner that is sprayed directly into the evaporator case. It would have to be done by a repair shop.

To repair a driver's side door molding that is loose, there is a sealant that can be purchased at an automotive parts store. This type of sealant is weather resistant and is usually black in color to help it blend in with the color of the molding.

There are several types of oil leak sealant for a 1992 Honda Accord. A few of the sealants that can be used are Bar Leak's seal repair, Lucas Oil, and Blue Devil oil leak sealant.

They don't work and are only an emergency repair. If you have a blown head gasket the only way to repair it is to replace it.

You can try the pool liner repair sealant. I used it to repair flatbed tarps when I ran 18 wheelers over the road to good effect.

If you need to replace the AC evaporator, it is best to have this done at a dealership or repair shop. Doing this replacement requires draining the refrigerant, which is unsafe to do yourself, and can be illegal.

The first bottle was not a good idea. The problem needs to be repaired properly. The pour in sealant is risky as it can cause all sorts of problems and is probably a temporary repair. The copper sealant Bottle will have use instructions for the size of your car. the answer you are looking for is there.

There are several pour in sealant options that "Claim" to seal head gasket leaks. If they work at all and it is unlikely, it will be for a short period only.The only real repair for head gasket leaks is to change the head gasket making sure to check everything correctly allong the way!

It cannot 'just' leak, there has to be a cause. You need to find where the leak is from.A temporary repair can sometimes be made using a sealant or adhesive and then the tank replaced.

You must first pull off the damaged shingle. After doing so, replace with a new shingle and secure the shingle with four nails.If a shingle is simply cracked or torn, you don't have to replace it,just repair it. Start by applying a thick bead of roofing sealant under the crack. Press the shingle down and apply a second bead of sealant on top of the crack. Then spread the sealant with a putty knife.
