I would NOT recommend using any type of leak sealant, usually causes more damage and will not fix the problem. What engine is in your vehicle, 3800? I would strongly recommend having it checked out professionally before you do anything else, it is very possible that it is not the head gaskets, if it is the 3800 engine there is a good chance that it is a problem with the intake manifold.

Question Answered: Radiator leak at bottom/what damage could I have if I use Radiator stop leak
July 02, 2014, 05:09 AM
I would not recommend added stop leak to the radiator, it might stop the leak, but it may also create other problems in the cooling system and /or heating system. Is it possible that your vehicle is still under the factory powertrain warranty? The radiator would be covered if it is. Please call me direct and have your VIN number ready, I will check to see if the warranty is still valid.

Since air bags are as safety system, I would encourage you to have it checked out professionally, at a GM dealership. Having it checked at A GM dealer has the advantage of all the factory information, and if any new bulletins have been released regarding the concern. Possibly the repair may be covered under warranty. We would be happy to check this out for you, call me direct at 757-886-1819 to schedule an appointment.
Question Answered: What does it mean when the oil light and battery light both come on and car dies
February 15, 2013, 06:15 AM
The Oil and Battery lights come on when the engine stalls because; the engine oil pressure drops to zero, and the battery is not being charged due to the engine not running. This is not an indication that the problem is due to either one.
As for the clicking sound and not turning over, suspect low battery voltage to the starter-possibly due to excessive corrosion at the battery terminals, or loose battery terminals.
