SOURCE: blown head gasket

I would change both, as well as use new head bolts. Make sure your heads are not warped or cracked, especially the one that is leaking. There may not be any need to change the head if it is not cracked. These are prone to blowing a gasket especially after 150K miles or so. It will not cost a huge additional amount to change both head gaskets since the engine will have to be disassembled down to the heads anyway. Hope this helps you, Rick

SOURCE: leaking oil put of tail pipe, is the cooling sensor important, head gasket blown how do you know

Never seen oil come from tail pipe (unless a piston has a broken ring or a hole burned in it.) Cooling sensor tells the computer the engine temp and the computer turns the fan on through the fan relay. Very important for it to work. A blown head gasket will make the engine overheat, can cause white smoke from tailpipe, coolant loss and extremely rough running. Also can cause coolant in engine oil or oil in radiator. What you may be seeing may be water mixed with carbon from the inside of the pipe. Excessive water coming form pipe is also a head gasket symptom. A compression test or cylinder leakdown test or a radiator hydrocarbon test will tell you if gasket has failed.

SOURCE: Constant smoke from tail pipe.

If its smoking that bad you should be able to tell if its oil or antifreeze by the smell, stand behind the car as its running, if its white and you smell a sweet smell its antifreeze if its blue and smells like a oil refinery its oil.

SOURCE: Water in oil! Very creamy looking oil,,and

Yes it is a blown head gasket. All of these symptoms are sure signs of a blown head gasket. The only other thing that it can possibly be is a cracked head or cylinder. But 99 times out of 100 it is just a blown head gasket.

Well i did the batt and the alt to now i have a los of coolant and now i have water form the tail pipe what is it


not a complete history in your brief 'sentence', but water from the exhaust is either condensation whick is normal, or you have a blown head gasket or worse (cracked head or block) which is going to be very expensive to fix. If it is not overheating too, you have nothing to worry about, if it is you need to get the car to someone who can do a compression test and cylinder and/or coolant leakdown test to determine the extent of the damage.

My Beamer is using slot of water but shows no signs of a radiator leak


has it been run hot lately?do you have water or coolant in your oil? pull the engine dipstick to see. do you have oil in the radiator? do you see coolant coming from the exhaust? these are all signs of blown head gasket. unexplained useage of coolant with no apparent signs of leakage usually means that coolants going trough the engine and out the exhaust system.smell bad when idleing in enclosed space? unexplained smoke coming from tailpipe when weathers warm? water residue dripping from tailpipe after the engines warm? i've given you most of the signs of a blown head gasket,which is what you requested, using alot of water with no sign of leakage. if no water in the oil,no oil in the water, then the leaks into the exhaust and out the tail pipe. you can do this, remove the ant-freeze from engine, then apply nanno technology[auto zone] water only added to engine. follow directions on 1quart bottle. this has worked for me several times.[for blown head gaskets that leak into exhaust] it's new technology that's new to the automotive industry. 1 quart costs $20.00 considering how much it costs to replace a blown head gasket that's only leaking into the exhaust sysytem,that's worth a gamble l to me. i've seen it work myself.

you can have a blown head gasket without mixing of liquids, the coolant is going out the tailpipe, and engine compression is overloading the coolant system pressure

Overheats and water in radiator disappears


there's a chance you have a blown head gasket. If that's the case, your coolant isn't disappearing, but leaking into the cylinders. Check your oil. If it looks kind of milky, it means it's mixing with your coolant, which indicates a blown head gasket. Any white smoke coming out the tail pipe is also a tip off.
