Aluminun seal messed up my jeep?

Heyy guys I need some help
I've had a few problems with this jeep before but fixed most of it and has been driving like a champ till yesterday. In the morning I put liquid aluminum into the radiator to fix some seals. I put in only half the bottle cuz its just a 4 cylinder. Bout 15 mins of driving smoke starts coming from the radiator cap soI let it sit to cool and go back to, make sure the cap is on right, start it up and let it ideal for bout 20 mins, than it starts to ideal a little high, than starts to over heat. I look in and see that the manifold is smoking. I shut it down and now it sits. Any advice guys??

Yank your radiator and put a new or rebuilt one in, and flush all that crap outta your system...Those seal in a can things are only meant for a temporary fix,,, if you have super hot manifolds you may have done some real damage,, no way to tell about that till you get your coolant system fixed... then start it up and see what happens.. Good luck !!

If you need to fix a seal, then fix the seal. Do you really want something going through your engine that is designed to plug up a leak?

Using a Radiator leak fix to stop water flow works exactly as it is designed. The only problem with that scenario is it for the most part stops water flow.
