I've done a search and seen that a few of you have tackled this issue before. I just purchased the truck last week but I'm moving to PA in a few weeks and took it in for an oil change, tire rotation and to get a basic inspection. They came back with a couple of minor things and that there's coolant coming from the timing cover gasket. Quote to fix. $1600, I've got some questions out to various friends for people that do side jobs but in the mean time can I just run some stop leak? If so is there a particular one that I should go for in your experience? Thanks a lot for the help guys.
