Icon5 Complete Gasket kit is it worth buying?

Hey guys, i have a leak in my engine somewhere, i guess its time to change the gaskets, but obviously i dont know which... im not a mechanic.... i came across this gasket kit which i guess will cover all of the areas of the engine. Just wondering if its a good idea, and if it will end my leak...

Will it fix your leak? 99.9% yes it will.


Will it cost 10X more than the cost of that kit to have someone install all those gaskets? sure will!

Re: Complete Gasket kit is it worth buying?

I'm heading in the direction of a re-build and gaskets are probably a priority...
Should do vac lines while you're at it. :)
