When do I know when my leak is too big for a porable leak sealant?
I have a leak in my radiator and its fast enough that i can see the water running down the reservoir and poring out the bottom of my car.
I want to get this done quickly and cheaply so if a jug or two of sealant will work then I want to use it, but if it wont I dont want to waste my time doing it.

Get new radiator
That shit will fuck your matrix, thermostat, pump etc.
It ain't worth it m80 88e

The pellet kind will. The liquid kind is ok, I've heard.
But either way, that leak sounds serious. I don't think any amount of stop leak will fix it.

Keep using that shit and say goodbye to your heater core faggots.

Are you sure it's actually from the radiator and not just the reservoir or a hose or some such shit.

Stop leak is garbage.. a radiator is like $40 for your shitbox. just buy a new one.

That's not a radiator leak, that's a reservoir leak.

I thought about that but the water comes out on the other side of my car.
In anycase it seems like the porable leak sealants are just temporary so you can get to the shop. So I'm going to buy a jug and try it and then see if i can hobble it down the street to a shop

Bad choice.

But whatever it's not my car.

How about looking at the water flow path with your eyes before spending money on snake oil?
