Default Permanent head gasket

One of the previous owners put it in the car and it's everywhere I wanted to see if there was anyway to clean out the whole system I put flush in it but I wanted to see if there was a better way

I assume we are talking about the metal sealant stuff. I'm pretty sure there is no way to clean that out. it probably didn't fix the issue anyway. I'd be careful and make sure the coolant doesn't start getting into the cylinders.

Can you give us more detail on the car, mileage, etc

Sounds it is not worth to use a permanent head gasket.

no, its a terrible solution. the same goes with tire sealant (fix a flat). and any other quick fix.

Only way is to get a good hot tank cleaning. At that point it'll probably be cheaper to just get another engine. Some of those head gasket sealers work for a time, but cause irreversible damage in the long run.

Do it right or don't do it. One of my mottos.
