Steel Seal Review - Toyota 4x4 Pickup 1994
Hey,thought I'd let you know your stuff doesn't just do heads.I have a '94 Toyota 4x4 pick up called Doris.162,000 miles but still young at heart,so when the heater matrix dumped all its water in the foot well I was a bit miffed.I got a coffee went on line but couldn't find a matrix for less than £120 then the dashboard has to come out,all a bit much in the middle of a cold snap,-9 last night.I have no faith in Barrs or Radweld,never have,never will but have used egg whites with some success in my first car in '77,I digress,got another coffee & looked up coolent leaks & Steelseal was mentioned on a Hilux Surf forum so I went to your site,didn't mention rad's or matrix leaks so went to local stockist,Family Garage at Lingfield,he'd done a rad last year with it and all was well so I got some green water,no coffee tho.Later sat with a coffee I went through instructions,half a dozen times,phoned help line twice with what might sound stupid questions but I needed to get it right.So I followed instructions verbatim.
First warm up nochange,coffee while Doris cools,second warm up still full of steam,another coffee while Doris cooled,I knew it was a waste of 30 quid,third warm up was a drive round the block...it's worked! flipping 'eck,put kettle on,its wonderful.I am so surprised,didn't think it would,It's green water for heavens sake.Doris is happy too...thanks...Think I'll have a drive to cafe for a coffee...
