Sounds exactly like what happend to me when i blew my headgasket, our MY's are know for that. Are there any bubbles in your overflow tank when you rev your motor? Any white smoke out of your exhaust?

Remove thermostat completely and try. IF it still overheats, then you have a bad headgasket.

the guy in the video is a mechanic and he isn't related to the company that makes the stuff. he says it won't fix all leaks, but it does work on some. anyway, the point was that it is worth a shot being infinitely cheaper than installing a new gasket. this stuff just reacts and forms a bond like a glue.

are you sure there is fluid in the bottom hose? You need to make sure your system is flowing all the way through.

REMOVE the thermostat completely and try that before putting ANYTHING into the radiator. It cloggs the radiator as well as "fixing" the leak.... Then you need a new radiator possibly.

I'm gonna try that steel seal junk and see if its worth a shot before we bother having to swap the entire engine due to deck warpage.

I hate to sound like I'm repping this product, but it has no solid filler or mineral content and can't clog the cooling system. It works simply by reacting to abnormally hot areas and solidifying. It is really the only additive that works without fillers or solid content.

Please don't beat me up sir
