1990 Toyota Cressida Question: Mechanic tells me that engine in my 1986 model may be leaking

 

Question

Visitor, 3.0L 6 Cylinder, Merrick, NY, February 24, 2011, 13:21

My car has only 140,000 miles. If engine is leaking, is it wise to use stop leak additives? Do they work? What questions should I ask to ensure that it is in fact an Engine Leak and not gasket, etc.

    is this a coolant leak? oil? power steering fluid? or
    transmission fluid? with any of these leaks, stop leak is not a repair. on a 25 year old car, how much money would you spend to fix a leak? at what point does the repair exceed the value of the car?
