REPLACE A 2.2 RAV4 HEAD GASKET?


Replacing the head gasket on any car is a LOT of work. You have to remove pretty much the top half of the engine. Also, if the head gasket blew because it overheated then you may need to have the head resurfaced. You should be able to get an estimate from an auto repair shop. If you want to do it yourself then set aside lots of time, take photos as you disassemble the engine so you can remember how to put everything back, and be prepared to buy some tools that you might not already have.

Need head gasket for vauxhall victor 3300 6 cylinder where can I find them


overhaul kits are available from reputable auto spares shops, engine rebuilding shops and from the spare parts department of you local dealer. If you buy on line ,be careful as some generic gaskets do not have all the coolant holes to allow water to flow from the block to the head

This is normal (for a cheaply made Chinese engine). Try pressing the accelerator to the floor once or twice, let off and then start the engine. Be more concerned about the Lower Intake Manifold and Head Gaskets. My 2005 Equinox just blew one or the other yesterday at 109,000 well maintained and always babied miles. The estimate to replace the head gaskets was "about $2000.00." Good luck!

The heat has went out and the engine is overheating,it blew the radiator hose off when it happened.


Sounds like you have a bad head gasket, Some simple tests at a repair shop can verify this.

No use putting any money into this until you verify the integraty of the engine

My 1995 4X4 3.0L engine head gasketfailed at 251K km and was replaced at a cost of about $2400CDN. Coolant in the block damaged the bearings and the engine blew 30K km later. It was replaced at a cost of...


Here in the US the NTSB can be contacted online or by phone. National Traffic Safty Board surely has a Canadian counterpart. They will have a list of TSB(technical Service Bullitins) and recalls. But it's 15 years old and they probably don't apply anymore. 251 K is pretty long life though. I had 362K on a GMC 350, then it blew the head gasket too.

97 mustang overheating and blowing cold air


Get a compression check to find out if you have a bad head gasket, I have a 96 with the 3.8L that had the same problems at first. then it started to blow out antifreeze thru the expansion tank, the head gasket finally blew the rest of the way going down the highway

Engine sputters at times when driven up hills or in the hot weather.


Sounds like a head gasket is cracked, any water in oil? That will make oil look like muddy water. Any oil leaks under vehicle? Trace to see if coming out from under head on side of engine block.

Lose power in a head wind?

You may never see signs of leaks or water in oil, it could be a crack of gasket allows combustion power to flow from one cylinder to the adjacent cylinder.

My 1991 Isuzu Rodeo had this problem, it is an 8 hour fix and a couple of days wait after you take head into shop to be milled. Then 4 hours to put back together, very simple to do yourself, but you need a Chilton Manual from local auto store, otherwise $1200.00 to have a good shop fix for you.

SOUNDS LIKE THE TOP OF THE PISTONS ARE HITTING THE VALVES. IF YOU HAVE HAD THE HEAD SKIMMED YOU ARE BRINGING THE HEAD .018IN  CLOSER TO THE BLOCK. REALISTICLY YOU SHOULD GET A  THICKER HEAD GASKET OR TRY PUTTING 2 ON. IT SOUNDS EXTREME BUT ENGINES ARE VERY PROCICE AND THESE MOVING PARTS ARE VERY CLOSE TO START OFF WITH.
