    Bigrig don't worry about trying to find a chook out whoop whoop to fix the radiator,
    how the heck you gunna get it to sit on the top of radiator, what tape it there.?

    Pepper works as it floats and will follow the path of least resistance the leak.
    similar with the egg then it sets.


    Never use chemiweld unless your selling it next week,
    5min flakes work a treat, grab some for the glovebox, handy as
    and easy too

    Sounds like a segment they should do on Top Gear.

    I wonder how effective curry powder is...

    Myth Busters did the egg test and it worked. A few friends that are mechanics don't like that stop leaks as they feel the unused particles are just going to block passageways somewhere else in the coolant system.

    The egg cooks in the hot water and expands filling in minor leaks, however it is a short short fix.

    Just another thought, there's pressure built up in the radiator. can egg and pepper stand for that and for how long?

    I drove around with a banana in the radiator, worked for about 1000 km before the replacement radiator arrived. The older the banana, the better.

    I spilled a bit of the banana on the air intake piping, and a week or so later the banana changed into something like chewing gum, I figured that is the way it worked inside the radiator as well.
