Unhappy newbie, e46 2001 330i Ian from n.ireland

just in the middle of head gasket problems. Trying the cheap fix route at the minute, shes pressurizing/putting exhaust gases into and using water. Do magic potions really work? I,ll find out tommorrow, Ive tried a few cheapies that didnt work so i,m trying STEEL SEAL now,got in on ebay for 30 quid.Just bought the car off ebay and it was ok for two weeks then problems started,enough for now, i,ll let you know how i get on, not too hopeful if i,m honest and forsee a stripping session, cheers ........after establishing that it was the 3rd cylinder i removed the spark plug to relieve the pressure and run about 1500rpm 10-15mins and let it sit for an hour, i done this five times to give it the best chance possible, to my amazement it is holding for about three weeks now, how long it lasts i dont know but if it goes again i,ll bung in another bottle,fingers crossed.
