my coolant is leaking out from the water pump, I've been recommended to use some sealant thing like k-seal but several people have said that I shouldn't use it. Anyone had any experiences of k-seal or similar products? Is k-seal the best, I've noticed others brands in halfords and wasn't sure if they were better or worse?

Do not use anything of the sort. Replace the leaking water pump.

Fail to do so, and HG failure is the most likely outcome.

I agree, dont be a lemon, If you got the knowhow just change the pump. its a bit risky puttin anything other than antifreeze and water in the system if you ask me!!

Yup i would say its a temporary fix aswell as being handy if you are putting cars through the auctions ;)
however it has proved useful on my £500 runabout car (HG not good when i bought it 3-4 months ago and not paying for a new one after going through 4 on my 200 in 18 months) as the smoke etc stopped within a couple of days. Been fine since not using any coolant etc.
If you have the money and the car is worth it, get the job done properly.
But yeah it does do the job on a short term basis.
