Repairing Oil Leaks

I've heard about products out there that claim to have the ability to repair worn and leaking gaskets by pouring some fancy liquid into the engine oil. My mother's 1990 Caravan 3.0L is leaking oil, and I'd like to find the easiest and cheapest way to plug it. Any Ideas?

    They are a can of worms. If you use that, and then keep the vehical, you may end up being sorry.
    What these remidies do is attack the seals chemicaly, which produces swelling. This can stop a leak for a time, but when the leak returns it will be massive.

    Either live with the leak or fix it right.

    There is no mechanic or gasket set included in that can of gunk!
