SOURCE: Blown head gasket

Unfortunately there are too many things that could be wrong Most mechanics will not be tied to a price because the head gasket alone is probably not the only fault.Generaly the head itself is the culprit for the symptom your giving.It may be corroded or cracked and may not be repairable.Then theres all the other bits and pieces like hoses,thermostat etc.Once its all apart and can be inspected you will get your quote,head is usualy sent to machine shop to be inspected and a price for repair/replacement is given by them.Usualy takes a couple of days to get a full quote unless your mechanic has all the nessecary tools and equipment to do it on site.Good luck and hope it all works out ok

SOURCE: 2003 ford taurus smell antifreeze burning &

probably not. put aluminum seal in the cooling system and top off antifreeze. you may need a hose or fitting from where you are decribing the leak. if the leak stops with the sealant you are good to go. otherwise take it to a shop and they will tell you. do not tell them you think it is a head gasket.

How can you tell if you have a blown head gasket in a 2003 Ford Explorer if no water is in the oil


Water in the oil is not the only symptom of a blown head gasket. You can have a blown gasket where the cylinder gasses are being injected into the the water jacket only. This will overpressurize and overheat the engine. There is a test that can detect this using a coolant sample from the radiator to test for hydrocarbons present in exhaust. Lastly, the gasket can blow to the exterior of the engine, allowing compression gasses to escape the engine block. The quickest DIY test to determine the possibility of a blown gasket is a cylinder compression test. The compression should be approximately the same in all cylinders and should not leak down quickly. If it does, this indicates either a blown head gasket or possible valve issues.

When I drive my 2005 ford escape I sometimes smell something burning?


Either it is due to heat from engine I.e. burning dripped oil or clutch issues.incorrect use of clutch I.e. Slipping it or resting foot on it will cause the clutch fluid to burn and waft into the car interior.i once had a burning smell issue that was due to a bin liner getting stuck underneath the engine which caused it to melt and emit a terrifying smell that caused a few days of anguish.

I've been told by my trusted neighborhood mechanic that my '95 Isuzu Trooper LS (3.2 L) has a warped head gasket (has been running low on oil- now runs very rough & spews out blue smoke from...


Blue smoke is oil burning, white steam/smoke is coolant burning, it will be a sweet smell.
You have a choice, repair the head gasket (if there is coolant in the oil, the bottom end needs rebuilt also) which is around,$300-$1000 depends if a garage or you do it, the problem with doing a head gasket is there is no garantee, if you replace the engine with a used engine you have a 90 day/ 1 year warantee, your choice. about the same cost.

My kia sorento is white smoking and rough idling please help


this is usually the sign of a blown head gasket. you may also want to check your catalytic converter . look for signs of water in your oil by checking your dip stick. if your oil is a brownish color or you see water on the dip stick, your head gasket is blown and the rough idle is being caused by water leaking into the combustion chamber. when engine coolant is burned it gives off white smoke and it gives off a kind of sweet smell from the exhaust. if the exhaust smells more like oil, piston rings may be the cause. a compression test will help get you on the right track.

28 Solutions for ''HOw can I tell if I have a cracked head blown head gasket or cracked blown like how can I see it''


Often (but not always), a blown head gasket will also cause deposit of water on a piece of cardboard held an inch from the tailpipe output while the engine is running (when this is happening, it is likely that the catalytic converter has been ruined and the muffler will corrode in short order as well).

Sometimes drops of water will be seen dropping from the end of the tailpipe. Another clue: turn on the heater; often when the head gasket is blown an odor of antifreeze and synthetic rubber will emanate from the heater vents.
Many of the symptoms of blown head gasket can be caused by some other problem in the cooling system, without the head gasket being damaged. Conversely, other problems with the cooling system can cause a blown head gasket and/or warped head.

When checking for a blown head gasket, one of the most common tell-tale signs is a milky-gray ring around your oil cap. When coolant enters the engine oil through a crack in the head or through a blown gasket, it evaporates and leaves a milky ring around the oil cap. Another easy way to tell is to check your oil dipstick. Change your oil and pull out the dipstick. Make sure that you take note of how far up the dipstick the oil is. Top off your cooling system and fill your cooling reservoir to the top. Screw radiator cap back on and start engine. Run engine for about 20-30 mins. or until it reaches normal operating temperature. Allow engine to cool (engine must cool completely to get accurate oil reading!!). Check oil dipstick again. If the oil has a watery appearance and has risen noticeably up the dipstick, the you probably have a blown head gasket or a warped head. Also look for a dripping, sweet-smelling liquid coming out of your tailpipe. Any of the above symptoms could be the result of a blown head gasket. The easiest way to tell is with a compression meter. This replaces the spark plug and lets you know what compression each cylinder is running at. If your compression is abnormally low, then you have a blown head gasket or a warped head. (note: consult repair manual for appropriate compression of each cylinder.)
