My car has a very slow leak of radiator fluid out the side of the motor and after about 30 minutes it will start vibrating the whole car and the temperature gauge goes almost to the red spot on the gauge and im wondering if I need a head gasket or can I put some fix-a-leak in it
Do you

I would suggest replaceing the head gasket even though they make stop leak products. It's not always best to add them

I would check water pump the bearings are probably gone making the car vibrate. The water pump is on the left side of engine
