Question about 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe
No white exhaust smoke - no power loss - deisel engine 2lt automatic - could the head gasket be the problem
The water can only go one of 2 places, the crankcase or the exhaust. A blown head gasket could definitely be the problem. If oyu can get hold of a compression gauge you need to check the compression on each cylinder. If the head gasket is blown around the area of a cylinder you will see a low reading on that cylinder when you check compression.. Also chek the radiator for the presence of air bubbles. this indicates the head gasket is blown next to a water port.
The main thing to look for on the compression test is one cylinder that is markedly lower than the rest.
Hope this helps Good Luck Loringh Ps Please leave a rating if appropriate Thanks
