Probably a dumb question but was the engine block skimmed and on certain cars you get different thickness gaskets for different performance heads, and is the timing correct?

Is there ant other way water can get into the cylinders other then blown head gasket? Ive replaced the head gasket twice now and water is still getting in causing miss firing, white smoke and milky oil. Can water get into the inlet manifold some other way? Every cylinder had signs of water when i took the head off yet the gasket looked fine.I have had the head preasure tested and it is o.k.


It is possible the block isn't level. I'm guessing you have the shop manual for this and it will have the specs in it for block tolerance. You'll need a straight edge and feeler gauge to check it. My first guess was that your head is warped but yo ... 1996 Jeep Cherokee Sport

I have a '02 Lincoln Ls with 77k miles. Since last July (08) driving home on highway it started overheating. Took it to my regular mechanic as check engine light was on and he told me that I had a blown head gasket. Apprently, the computer told him that there was a misfire in one of the cylinders. Took it to second mechanic... He tested the block and determined that there was no blow head gasket. Replaced the hydrulic fan, changed hydrulic fluid/oil, serviced the cooling system, changed the ther

My 2006 hummer h3 has blown a head gasket twice. the first time was at 36000 miles and now at 68000 miles. Dealer is telling me this is not a recall and nothing I caused or could have done to prevent this from happening. They can not tell me why it blew and I think its going to blow again since they can not determine what caused it. Have you guys heard of this and what recommendations do you offer???

Daihatsu charade 1.3 1996 model. I bought the above car 3 weeks ago from a car dealer in WA. A week later the radiator overheated and has done so twice since. The thermostat has been changed twice but has not fixed the problem. The radiator cap has also been changed. large air bubbles can be seen when the cap is off which I am told could be the head gasket has gone. The car dealer is not very helpful so I need to know why the head gasket breaks down and any other information which could help me

The radiator of my 2003 isuzu trooper has a mixture of water and diesel now, and per mechanic, we have to replace the overhaul gasket kit and cylinder head (though without testing), can we just proceed with the replacement of gasket kit and defer the cylinder head since it will cost a lot to buy a new one?


How did the diesel get in there? are you sure its diesel fuel or is it motor oil? then it could be head gasket problem. Or trans fluid, which would make it milky pink? Then it could be the trans cooler in the radiator leaking. If someone accidently p ... 1992 Daihatsu Charade

My daughter has a 1996 cavalier 2.2l and it has a rough idle like a lug sound it runs fine and everything sounds great going down the road but just when it idles its a bit rough We changed the fuel pump in it a month ago ran great afterward and the external fuel filters changed head gasket a year ago car has only been driven since May 4th 2009 since we changed the head gasket it was blown when I bought it from my cousin.

The fuel filter is only about 5 bucks worth of work/material. Most of the time you have to get 3/8 fuel line and clamps and a filter with male adapters and just cut out the old one. But it's still a 20 minute job. Also try some dry gas or fuel treatm ... 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier

1987 Toyota mr2 4age won't start. head gasket blown and added sealer, but won't start now. engine turns and rumbles a bit w/ a slight backfire. Before tearing the head off or swapping motors, I was thinking of trying a few shots of starter fluid to see if it starts. If it does, then I'll have to track down whether it's a fuel problem or ignition. Since it sputters and gives a single "pop" before just spinning and since I replaced the old gas tank and found tons of rust in it. I suspect that the

Did you bleed the cooling system - that's usually why level drops at "Fill tank". It's not an overflow reservoir, coolant actually circulates through the tank. I would pressure test the cooling system, maybe intake is leaking or there's a crack in bl ... 2000 Land Rover Discovery

Have a check engine light on 2003 Kia Spectra GS. Told by mechanic that the codes state cylinder misfire in 2 cylinders and thinks it's a blown head gasket or cracked valve. Could it be that the wires or spark plugs need to be changed? Had this type of engine light code w/ my 1997 Toyota Corolla and a new wire set, spark plugs, and distributor cap fixed the problem for about $300 vs. $2000-$2500 that the dealership wants me to spend to fix this Kia Spectra.
