I don't think so.
with a broken gasket, you have to have it repair immediately because it would create more problems and more $$$ to spend.
you might end up with a broken engine if you would continue to use it.

tnx 4 using fixya,

Replacing oil pan gasget on my 91 chevy C1500 5.7 auto. Do I have to lift engine? Do I have to remove tranny shield. Already putting new starter on it.

Not sure here i but i think replacing the whole vehicle with a newer small engined diesel to reduce your carbon footprint might possibly be a better option,the price of fuel will only keep going up and come on a 5.7 litre engine is becoming obnoxious and even more so as because its so old its not engineered to modern emmision standards ,

iam jealous sorry

We were driving home lastnight and car over heated then died now it wont start. It turns over but wont start. Changed the thermostat. I dont think the fan is kicking on.

Very possible you have a blown head gasket. A compression test on your engine will verify that. When you changed thermostats, was your coolant clean, no traces of oil contamination? Have you checked your oil dipstick? A milky color would indicate water (coolant) in your oil, a sure sign of head gasket failure. Just depends how badly it overheated. But if it wont start, I'd say get a compression test.

What could be the reason for over heating? give me some parts i should look at

Possible reasons of over heating include, low water, thermostat, no thermostat installed, radiator stopped up inside with gunk or outside with bugs, broken or missing radiator shroud, missing lower air dam, fan not running if electric or fan not running because of oil filled fan clutch, intake gasket or gaskets stopped up, blown head gasket, cracked head, cracked block. I put these in order of simple to hard and mostly low price to high price. Hope this helps.

Blown head gasket. what is the cause? there is very high pressure in the radiator and eventually a lot of air and little coolant. it then starts over heating because all the coolant gets pushed out at the...

Running hot will cause head gasget to fail. Or if head is not torqued properly, or a faulty head gasget. Pressure in cooling system means, blown head gasget or cracked head.

Leaking vcooling system possibly? replacement of head gasket?

First thing i have never seen a sealent that would fix a bad head gasget, secound if you got water in the cyl. than most likely there is water in the oil witch over a short period in time will do damage to the vitals in the bottom end. Third for them to tell you that a sealent might fix the leak i would be getting a secound openion.

Wont start

Check the backside bottom of the carb. there's a vacuum port there. Make sure it's plugged up. How's you timing? Also try rotating distributor back and forth. It may be a timing issue. Not enough or too much.
