Hi Justin. Thanks for contacting us today. While I’m a big fan of that brand, not all stop leak products will stop a leak (especially if it’s a rather large leak). I would recommend having a professional mechanic come to your location and complete a fluid leaking inspection, so they can determine where the leak is coming from and recommend or complete the right repairs to fix the leak.
