Soft plug question

(1/1)

Jeff1967:
I have noticed since the weather has turned cold my soft plugs have been weeping, That is, they are dripping very slowly. Did not notice that during the summer, but now the car is parked in the shop for winter projects I have noticed the dripping. Is there anything I can put into the cooling system that will seal them without harming my new radiator and heater core?

Any suggestions.

Thanks,

Jeff

Soaring:
Two tablespoons of black pepper.

Glen,

Joking right? I am not making Texas BBQ......

Soaring:
Actually, the black pepper will seep into the crevices of a leaking gasket or whatever and swell up to stop the leak.  This is not the right way to fix it, but may, and I say MAY stop the leak.  It won't hurt your system, so why not give it a try?  I did it on my old F-150 and it worked.  It's just a suggestion, so take it for what it is worth.  Otherwise, pay the big bucks to have it done right. 

Jeff1967:
Well then worth a try.

Thanks,

Jeff
