This is what happens when someone who shouldn’t be working on cars in the first place decides to use “as much as it takes” stop leak to try and fix a cracked radiator.
There was 0 flow of coolant through the motor because the stop leak had plugged the water pump solid. So solid in fact the one outlet required a chisel in order to break through it.
Final out come you ask ?
The car got a new motor because it over heated so bad it melted the DI cassette, new radiator, new hoses, new heater core….

I was the mechanic/Shop that had to fix it.....
I think the owners son was the one who dumped all the stop leak in.

Radiators rank pretty easy on the hard to easy scale too. I surprised myself swapping one into a Mexican spec Neon.
