Gasket sealant?

Do any of you guys have reccomendations on a good sealant. I gotta get a new intake manifold gasket but untill I save up some cash I was thinking about using one of those additives ya put in the radiator. I don't want to put anything in there that might mess anything up. The leaks are really small so do you guys think I should just wait untill I have the cash or would a sealant be a good quick and temporary fix? Is there any bad side affects of using one of these products?

Re: Gasket sealant?

Theres a lot of different brands and types but as long as you dont get carried away with that stuff(like adding it once a week) you should be ok. Remember though, not all of them are compatible with coolant so read the label and use as directed. If it might be a while before you get the opportunity to fix it right, i would find one thats compatible with coolant. Sorry, dont know the brands that *are* off hand.

Re: Gasket sealant?

I've used Aluma-Seal with some semblance of success.
I'ts (like the name says) powdered aluminum.
Just pop the rad-cap and pour in the radiator.
Comes in a plastic container about the size of a roll of quarters.
Repaired a water pump gasket leak.
I left the sealant in for a year before fixing the water pump properly.
It never did leak after using 1 "dosage" of the stuff.
