Hello my name isXXXXX the stop leak found in auto parts stores is just a bandaid, however there are some really good lubricants available, the stop leak I have personally seen never works. If fluid can leak out, then a seal or gasket needs to be replaced. Any more questions just ask, Thanks Steve W
