You can tell what they are by the need to remove your existing coolant, flush your radiator, put this in, run the engine for 1-2 hours, flush the car again and replenish the coolant again. The non-silicates seals are straightforward...just add the bottle to your existing coolant and that's all there is to it.

The silicate free ones tend to be more expensive...could run you up to $90. The silicate sealants cost around $50.

However, recently a forum member and myself conducted an experiment with this product :

It is definitely worth a try, it is not as good as a direct repair, but it may do enough of a good job for you to have reliable performance over the long term.

Have you tried this product? And are the results from users good?
