    I'm not really sure which one to move it to either but this is definitely not the correct one.

    I figure trucks and SUVs might get you the most response. There are a couple fluids I've seen at Pep Boys that are pretty heavy duty. You have to drain your cooling system since they only mix with water. Run your engine for a while then drain. You have to leave the top and bottom radiator hoses off for 24 hours so the repair can dry completely. Pretty involved for something you pour into the radiator but supposedly they work pretty well.

    they do not work very well. and if you they start to clot but then break lose you will have a damaged engine/radiator
