2004 Honda VTX 1300 has a blown head gasket

I have a blown head gasket and the mechanic said it is a $1,300.00 job. Have you heard of the Dura-Seal head gasket repair and is this a viable option or just a band-aid?@

Would Dura-Seal eliminate the problem of a blown head gasket 0n a 1997 Cadillac Eldorado?


No it would not. The same as chemi-weld. Good to get you home but full of problems later. To fix a blown head gasket pull the head ,have it machined flat and refit using a genuine gasket. (after market do not have all the holes in the right places )

Does that dura-seal head gasket repair stuff REALLY work?


I had a blow head gasket on my BMW 6 cyl. and it was blowing white smoke and losing alot of coolant. After doing alot of research I found that all the other brands like blue devil, steel seal, KW and bars all use water-glass. The only company that does NOT USE WATER-GLASS is Dura-Seal. If you have aluminum heads it's very important to use a sealer that can flex with your engine's aluminum heads. The DuraSeal actually stays flexible! So I tried it and it stopped the smoke and overheating. No more coolant loss either. It's been running fine for over a year now. I would reccomend Dura Seal head gasket sealer to everyone... Great product! Also the tech department guys really know what they are talking about...

Chev s10 1998 over heating water in oil can i do a quick fix with gasket sealer an still drive truck until i can afford to replace gaskets


Over the years I have seen quite a number of sealers advertised to repair gaskets etc. There are newer ones out that make the same claims (also expensive @ about $100). Though it is possible that they work, I have no idea for how long. As always, the best cure for a cylinder head gasket problem is still to actually do the repair.
Regardless of how you correct the problem, make certain that you drain the oil and filter or you will be looking at a bearing failure shortly.

Just started to noticed white smoke coming out of exaust pipe. Noticed smell of gas. Is this normal for a car this old


Looks like you have a blown head-gasket. The white smoke is actually your engine coolant mixing with your engine oil and being expelled as a water vapor. You need to take it into a repair shop Immediately.

Blown head gasket how to repair it


The only way possible: remove the cylinder head and replace it. And do it quickly because a blown head gasket can seriously damage an engine if left unfixed.
This is a serious job, which requires mechanical knowledge and some special tools - a torque wrench is mandatory.

head gasket repairs will cost you thousands 2 at the least as it involves stripping down half your engine, if the engine starts and you can run the car for more than 40 mins you are in luck, there is this stuff called SEAL UP i think the brand is CARGO you pour it in your radiator and it chemically welds your head gaskets and other cracks back together and lasts for ages and actually works brilliantly assuming the crack isn't to big used it on my car last nite as i had blown head gasket and it runs great now
