Head gasket blown on 1999 sunfire gt

I want to change this out myself. I have purchased the manual on this vehicle but it doesn't really tell me the how to for a beginner. The car's thermostats guage goes up on the red. The antifreeze reservoir bottle blows the antifreeze out through the bottle.

This is quite an undertaking for a "beginner". Don't you have anybody that has some experience with this level of undertaking that would be around to coach when questions come up.. I'm not trying to talk you out of this, just trying to give you a small dose of "reality"

Good luck Loringh

Car overheating, coolant blowing out of overflow

without knowing much about the particulars of the car I am at first inclined to go with what the computer says. HOWEVER I also happen to know if you have a bad or stuck thermostat not letting the coolant flow correctly it too can trick the computer into a head gasket error code. Most times you can get a new thermostat for less than $15.00 and change it yourself. It's usually 2 bolts. If you change it and still get the same result look at it as cheap insurance and then you'll know someone isn't trying to take advantage of you by telling you it's head gasket when it really isn't. Head gasket job's aren't cheap I would want to make sure before I spent that kind of money.

I have coolant on my oil dipstick is it intake or head gaskets

I would suspect a blown head gasket. STOP driving the vehicle immediately or serious engine damage will occur. Drain the oil and change the filter. The head itself may also be cracked. A compression test will determine if the head gasket is blown or the head is cracked. Take it to a trusted mechanic for diagnosis and repair if he is close by. If not have it towed in for repair.

My antifreeze disappears from the holding tank.

There are only a couple of places it could be going. One, it could be a blown head gasket (is there white smoke coming out of the tailpipe? Does the oil on the dipstick look like a milkshake?). Two, it could be leaking from the heater core (Does your windshield fog up? Is your carpet wet?).

1999 volvo s70 overheating

Yes this has happened to me. The coolant temperature sensor tells the radiator fan when to turn on to cool the radiator. When this sensor is faulty your vehicle is overheating and it can cause a blown head gasket if not replaced. I hope this was helpful.

I would check the exhaust pipe a little closewr. White smoke can also mean a blown head gasket. Check the tail pipe to see if moisture is present. Also check coolant level. A blown head gasket can also cause related problems.
