If your head gasket is blown, you would know by the incredible white clouds of smoke coming from your exhaust. shut off engine immediately because you are contaminating the bearings underneath and the expense of repair will be almost as much as getting a new engine. what's happening there is you are burning your radiator fluid thru the whole motor. i say this because it happened to me on an oldsmobile calais.

SOURCE: blown head gasket

It depends on the severity of the blow, and the distance to the other dealer, less than a couple miles should be okay, Just make sure you got plenty of water in the radiator. Any further and I'd rather tow it! You don't want to save on towing costs and pay more for damages later! Hope that helps!

SOURCE: got a 99 b2500 pick up bought requiring head

Hi! Yes this can happen. Don't doubt the mechanic for this incident is possible. If the head and block sticks then he'll have to force it to detach. This will surely be a painful procedure. Piston rings are surely fried and I strongly suggest that you get an engine on the junkyard to save you time and money. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

After sitting that long replace thermostat and refill with new coolant.Also make sure waterpump is turning when car is running. A glazed belt or seized waterpump is a possibility.

Car running hot

Probably a cracked cylinder head or block, or both. Or the head was warped and the head gasket has blown again.
When the engine gets very hot the gasket expands, and after a few times it will not return to its original shape.

Clunking noise when I hit bumps fuel low it stalls oil in anti-freeze

You probably have a cracked cylinder head. Has the car overheated or been run really low on

Could also be a blown head gasket. But the clunking sound when you hit bumps makes me
think the one of the cylinder heads is cracked.

But oil in the antifreeze is a sign of:

1) Cracked cylinder head.
2) Cracked engine block
3) Blown head gasket.

I think its a cylinder head because its a lot easier to crack a cylinder head than an engine

I have a 2000 2.2 chevy cavalier that i buy today and it have oil in the reservoir bottle what can it be plz help

If it has oil in the coolant resivoir bottle it has most likely got a blown head gasket or a cracked head/block. It will require diagnosing and repair which will be expensive. I hope you got it cheap. Fitting a second hand engine may be a good option as you dont know how hot this one may have gotten.

1991 mazda 323 1.6 16 valves manual. the car has a rough idle, a miss. burn greyish smoke and water comes from the exhaust. it overheats quickly and the radiater loses water with no trace of where it...

You have either blown out the head gasket or cracked the cylinder head itself. You will need to remove the cylinder head and at a minimum replace the head gasket. Inspect head surface after dis-assembly to verfiy that no cracking is present.

The water pump was replaced,thermostat replaced,car spews water from the overflow tube and emptys the water from the engine!

Probably either head gasket blown, or crack in head or block. Have you had the engine hot lately? Look for white smoke out of exhaust that will confirm head gasket or cracked block or head.
