coolant leaks in to one cylinder through head gasket. A small leak, add coolant. on 1998 BMW 323i

can this be repaired without replacing head gasket and retooling one cylinder? Value of car seems to be close to cost of replacing gasket. Is their a effective and less costly fix?

Check out a product called Blue Devil. That is all i can tell you about it. I just looked and youtube has a couple videos on this Blue Devil, one says it's junk, the other says best stuff ever! You decide. Of course you know what a mechanic is going to tell you to do, as we have never seen "miracle in a can"! I can't say one way or the other. However i do understand your predicament!

Thanks for your reply. Amazing the car is worth so little when its in mint condition except for the small coolant leaking .

I agree! These European cars are sharp rides i admit that but when it comes to the cost of repairs and durability, i think they are way overrated!
