Many of the gutter manufacturers have a sealer that is compatible with their gutters. Check the end caps for the manufacturer's name. If their name is there, get the gutter seal for that type of gutter.

Clean the inside of the gutter around the leak. Remove any standing water and using a small scrub brush and some soap, clean the inside of the gutter. Rinse it and dry it.
