I would never use those sludges to begin with, but I guess that's beside the point here.

Good luck with your fight, OP. Unfortunately you'll probably achieve nothing.

Hi, no it wasn't that
No hose problem
It was only a little leak, that won't show anywhere during the day.
No coolant spots on the floor, neither at any parking space
The car was running very strong, always a great car on the freeway
But after Bars' was added to the coolant, water circulation stopped completely and no reaching coolant passages, because Bar's liquid became hard as steel and blocked everything on its way

I have been using sealers in the past on older vehicles and I know they eventually will lower the system efficiency, but never had immediate problem with them.
I posted a link to the current packaging the for the Bar's product #1111 that the OP used.

I think what must be kept in mind is that Bar and similar products are designed not to fix a problem, but to buy time. How much time depends largely on luck, in my experience.
