    Water pump failure leads to dead engine

    I just see a product called kseal which fix coolant leak, some people say there is no issue using it to prevent leak. Has anyone tried to use kseal , maybe it will reduce the chance of gasket leak so coolant won't go into engine?

    smell when switch to floor vent
