How was this causing it to run poorly and, how is it related to the oil light coming on?

I guess cause the gasket was damaged and the hotter the oil got the more oil leaked the more oil leaked the more pressure it loss so i guess that trigger the oil light

Which liquid gasket seal did you use and how many bottles did you require ? Did you have to flush your radiator before and after its use ?

Hi 525iclassicguy,

Is this the bottle that you used ?

If it isn't, could you google for the product and post it up here ? Thanks.
