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

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
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?
