Angry Bar's head gasket, the right bottle for big damages

BAR'S HEAD GASKET REPAIR LIQUID, DOESN'T LIKE YOU!
Bar's head gasket # 1111 is a bomb in a bottle that will knock out your engine in just the first mile or less
and you will pay a big price to replace the overheated engine and damaged cooling parts
If this bottle will work so well, all the mechanics will have to close their doors!
But they do not!

It worked on my old 97 Dodge farm truck, but I would never consider using it on a German car.

I had a coolant loss and white smoke coming out of the exhaust. Bought the Bar's 1111 and followed the instructions. No more coolant loss or white smoke from the tail pipe.

As a rule I never use any stop leak or coolant fix in a can, but the farm truck is worth nothing on the on the market. Knowing that the block and heads on this truck are all iron and not aluminum I had nothing to lose.
The chemistry of the Bar's is for all iron engines. There are a few other two step products that claim they can work with aluminum engine parts. I have not tried them and probably wont seeing as all my other cars are all aluminum engines.
If I have an issue like a head gasket I am lucky enough to have a a lift and full engine shop at my disposal.
The last time I built a track/race car engine was almost 5 years ago and both cars are still running at the front of the pack at track events. If I suspected a head gasket I would just tear open the upper end and fix it.

Bottom line for a suspected head gasket problem on any MB with an aluminum engine or heads is to to pull the heads and replace the gasket. If the head(s) are cracked/warped then get them machined or replaced. It is cheaper than having to have a lot of cooling system parts replaced by using a fix it in a bottle approach.

Obviously, the best thing to do is just go to the mechanic and do the head gasket repair
Unfortunately, money plays hard on people pockets
The repair cost is high and Bar's duped me on its websites
I learned too late that Bar's failed in more than 65% of head gasket repairs
Bar's knows the tricks to entice people to buy the product and then when you have big engine problem, they holed up there and no even smoke signal communication

Your vehicle is a good candidate for this product if it can idle for 15 minutes without overheating or having to add coolant.

Yes, that is one of the websites, but they have many websites
They need to push hard in order to put the competition aside, but
with thousands of bad reports by consumers that used the product, it will be hard
for the people to buy the product, unless they want to damage the motor

car never overheated before adding the product
The product was added early in the morning when engine was cold
and I followed all instructions
But once, I drove the car, the temperature gauge went up and up
and engine was very hot and I pulled over several times
The mechanic found all clogged parts, Bar's stopped water circulation and damaged
motor
Before I added Bar's my car was in top condition with only a small leak, not visible during
day driving or when I parked the car at the Mall parking for 4 hours or so.
I only found the little leak on my home parking space, after not driving the car for at least 16 hours

I would like to see picture of what the sealer clogged in your system if possible?
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.

Sucks to hear, OP. However, it sounds like you tried using a sledgehammer for a job that could have been done with a tiny hammer.

In other words, you probably had a radiator/coolant reservoir/coolant hose leak, not a bad head gasket.

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.
