Itís only 12 bucks to find out I will definitely try it. My leak stopped by 70% and I am pretty sure itís a filter housing but very good chance also oil pan

Had a hell of a time finding it. No one has it in stock I bought the last bottle an Ebay vendor had. Hope it at least reduces my oil leak. Thanks for the tip.

I had the same problem trying to find it. I wonder if it’s being discontinued.

Check advanceauto.com.

The website should show availability for in store pickup.

Amazon shows out of stock. I will pick up some bottles from local stores that I drive by. If you can't find local let me know a quick search found a couple stores near where I drive that have some.

Checked them in my area and they are all out of stock. At least any I was willing to drive to. When I hit the "ship to" option it told me they were out of stock for my area.

AFAIK all the stop leaks are basically the same chemical so no need to obsess over getting that exact one. Kleen Flo, Extend, Rislone should all be good choices .

If they are the chemical kind I wouldn't ever use a solids based leak stop (other than a raw egg in an emergency situation and a leaky radiator)

I bought two from a nearby city. There are more at another. I'll prob stop and get what they have.

I had the same issue can't locate when I searched Chicago. Helpful tip on similar products. Especially if they discontinued 205. I am going to make a spray bottle out of one to use on steering and CV boots.
