I've blown the cylinder head of my Volvo 940 - and not really relishing dismantling the engine during the predicted cold snap :-(

As a low cost solution can anyone recommend Steel Seal?

I can't bear to get rid of the old girl - she's great fun in the snow :twisted:

Isn't there a DIY garage in the UK somewhere? Head gaskets aren't that expensive.

I would say it's unlikely to be a long term fix, if a fix at all and in that case it would lead to your time twice rather than fixing it properly once
