Is the rislone valve sealer any good. I can't get the at-205 reseal anywhere. The car overheated and only started blowing smoke firstly in the morning. The head was rebuilt a few year's back so i think its herdening from the heat. Thanks Scotty

I've been swinging spanners for 24 years and seen good and bad products come and go rislone valve reseal is relatively new in Australia. This is why I asked for more info and appreciate the help Laughing Out Loud Laughing Out Loud

People are using these resealers for the wrong things. 

You need to fix the issue at hand.

It's a b20 crv that has had the head reconditioned. The bypass hose blew and it got hot. Yeah I'd ideally replace the seals considering it's around $100aud to replace the seals myself and $67 dollars for the treatment. I physically can't do the work

Have you gone to a good local shop to see what the work would cost? It is probably time for a new car since the head has already been reconditioned once. Sucks to say that, but for what repairs may cost....it could be a better option.

Your car burns oil and rubber seals does not do anything about that. You need to fix the issue. 

Does this product actually work softening the seals though. Yeah ideal world I'd do the valve guide seals. Unfortunately I've hurt my back and waiting to see a neurosurgeon. I'm going to give it s shot. It's not too bad yet and if it does work for now it would be great.
