Hi the white are bubbles is leaking commpression between cylinder and waterjacket and its not air coming out of the dip stick its blow by the engine either cannot deal with excess back pressure caused by worn pistons or a faulty pcv stuck so check your compressions i suspect headgasket and replace the pcv as it should have been changed by now anyway yates210456

The header tank bubbles when I start my 1998 freelander 20T2n engine


check your radiator fluid to see if it has oil in it, and check your oil to see if it has radiator fluid in it that's a common problem with a head gasket leak, also if you notice a lot of steam coming out of your exhaust because it can get through to the piston and burn the antifreeze, but if it's bubbling in your overflow tank it might just be a bad radiator cap keep that in mind good luck

2000 lincoln ls v8 nocking noise in frout center of motor runs rough


this is sounding like you might have a blown head gasket. you can check for this in a few ways the simplist first. pull the oil filler cap off of the valve cover and check for a milky white or cream color residue on the underside of the cap. pull the oil dip stick and check for abnormally high oil level on the stick.you can also look in the overflow bottle to see if there are air bubbles being manufactured in the fluid. the surest way to tell what is going on is to do a compression test on the motor this will tell you exactly where the head gasket has been blown. not good nes im afraid this kind of repair will cost several hundred dollars.

1996 Chevy K1500 4L60E trans problem


O.k. the small hose that you have coming out of the case is the trans vent. The one going up the firewall is for the transfer case. The trans vent should be hooked to the transfercase vent. You say you have a 383? Are you running the fuel injection system. Is this a 4L60E (the stock transmission). If you have fluid coming from the vent, the transmission is getting too hot. Replace the cooler. Do away with the radiator cooler and add one to the front in front of the condenser.

Lots of back fireing. does not run fast, white smoke


White smoke is generally a sign of buring antifreeze which is a sign of a blown head gasket. Pull your oil dip stick and see if the oil is milky white. Open your radiator cap and start the truck. Do you have lots of bubbling going on or is there a oily residue in the antifreeze? If so these are other signs of a blown head gasket.

The car got hot we pulled off to side of road and filled with water and havent been able to get it started did a compression test on it and it failed my husband is thinking blown head gasket any other food...


If it failed the compression test then in would either be the head gasket (like your husband said) or it could have a cracked head. Which would be caused by the car getting too hot. Check the antifreeze to see if it has oil in it. And check the oil to see if it has antifreeze bubbles on the dip stick. If either have it then it is a blown head gasket. Good luck.
