26 years ago I bought a 66 Belvedere with the leaning tower of suspense in it. Someone put stop leak in it...smelled kinda like Bars Leak but had no idea what or how much. Problem was my thermostat kept sticking even after flushing the cooling system and replacing the stat several times. It would work for awhile but I finally gave up and took it out and just blocked the radiator in the winter time for heat....luckily, it ran cool in the summer even with the ac on. Still have the car but the engine is long gone

I know that your car is old and having high mileage, however using Bar's on your car will put everything upside down as it did on my Honda Civic Car
Sometimes a car needs a good mechanic and everything else is a band-aid, but in the case of Bar's could the final trip on your car if you add to your coolant

been around is like pimps, they can be around until the police will get them
You have to be aware that Bar's is posting fakes products reviews.
The Guardian an UK newspaper reported that people in the UK, Pakistan, India and Bangladesh are paid to post fakes reviews at companies in the USA
Since the Internet is getting bigger and bigger this situation is out of control
I saw in a website that someone said:
If Bar's works so good, why buy new cars?
Let's go and close all the factories and fix used cars with Bar's and save $ 25,000
But you know is not so!
