Rebuilt motor, coolant leaks at pipes between heads and blocks. The leaks go away quick after engine is running and warm but when it cools down, they all bleed. New o-rings on corroded pipes that I smoothed with silicone. Will these leaks go away on their own or is there another simple solution. It's not serious, just annoying.

If it was mine I wouldnt be afraid of using some stop leak in it. With small leaks it can help. I used some on my M5 and it worked.

That was my plan, I just don't know what would work best, the fine particles or that pelleted gooo

Ive used Silver seal and Barrs before (pellets). The pellets do leave a muddy consistency in the antifreeze..but maybe that is why it works at times. If it is small seepage I dont think the particles would hurt to try first. I know what you mean on not knowing what works best...you just want the leak to stop..
