I have a slow coolant leak that required me to fill with Dex-cool per manufactures specification. I'd do this every so often especially after long road trips. I put in Bars stop leak copper thinking it would fix the problem. Two days after putting in the stop leak I noticed the temp gauge needle rising a bit higher than normal and would top off and become frozen right around 190-200. Before adding the stop leak the needle would descend back down to 160 which is the bottom/lowest temp on the gauge when I'd shut the car off. Now, after shutting the car off the needle would remain frozen at/around 190-200 even over night. So am I looking at several hundreds of dollars to repair my idiocy or worse yet several thousands?
have the same problem?
