Eric the Car Guy does not approve of stop leak and I do not want to disappoint him. He was the only one to wish me Happy Birthday last year.
You can blow a head gasket without ending up with water in your oil. In fact, the last one of these I saw was on a mid 2000s honda. Fill up the cooling system and check for bubbles at the rad cap when you briefly open the throttle up.
