I mechanic said, coolant was somehow getting into the engine or gasket. right now im only put in water, no coolant. what can be done with repairing the engine? the estimated cost is $1200. thank you


the problem with adding straight water is that the boiling point of the water is lower than the coolant would be. 1200. sounds about right to replace a head gasket. cross your fingers that you don't need a new head which is often the case with aluminum heads.

The 2000 Ford Windstar that I have is using water. I fill it up with 2 containers of antifreeze and the next evening it needs some more added. I do not see any visible leaks in the driveway or when it is...


Engine coolant that is disappearing and leaving no visible trace is NOT a good thing. You most likely have a blown head gasket or a cracked cylinder head. (engine coolant going out the exhaust) Also check your oil to make sure the water is not getting into your crankcase. If it is, the oil will be over-full and will look like a chocolate milk-shake.

I have a ford windstar 1998 that has steam comming out of it. Antifreeze is pouring out of the exaust system, is this a head gasket problem? and on average how much to fix this type of problem


Sounds like the exhaust side of your head gasket is blown! If you have a mechanically inclined friend, cost could be minimal! if not, could be very costly! To do it yourself, it can be done in half a day (about 4-6 hours)!

The coolant has turned into a thick grayish fluid. was advised that it might be a blown head gasket. how is this going to be fixed and what is a ballpark figure for the cost to fix it.


Well, yes, it does sound like it might be a blown head gasket.

If, in fact that is the problem, the head(s) will have to be removed from the engine and the gasket mating surfaces cleaned prior to re-assembly.

At this point it would be incumbent on a good mechanic to make sure there isn't any warpage in the head or unevenness on the block deck surface that would prevent getting a good sealing with the new gasket(s).

As to the cost, shop rates vary widely, so your best bet is talk with friends, neighbors, relatives for a consensus on a reputable local mechanic.

If you have a Pep Boys in your area, they will be happy to provide a estimate based on what the issue appears to be, which will give insight into parts and labor costs.

Head gasket blown. What is approximate cost to


    Considerations
  1. Many internal engine problems, such as a blown head gasket, cracked head or cracked piston, can be repaired without having to replace an entire engine.
  2. Potential
  3. While taking the time to replace an engine may seem labor-intensive and costly, it will add years to a vehicle's life and will save a car owner from the cost of having to buy a new car.
  4. Benefits
  5. Taking a car to a mechanic and replacing an engine with a used engine can cost between $1,000 to $2,000 for parts and labor.
  6. Solution
  7. Car owners interested in replacing their engines with new ones can expect to pay anywhere between $2,000 to $4,000.
  8. Speculation
  9. For those interested in doing the engine replacement themselves, purchasing specialized tools needed for the job is a cost to consider in addition to the price of a replacement engine.

Waterleak nopressure in hose loud knocking at top of engin


That doesn't sound good. It appears you have 1 of 2 issues. The no coolant is a bad/blown head gasket or cracked engine block. When the head gasket is bad or block is cracked the coolant leaks into the cylinder blows out the exhaust (have you noticed the smell of coolant or white smoke in the exhaust) then runs by the pistons and into the oil pan (check your oil level it is probably way high) where it mixes with your oil and reduces its viscosity/lubrication. After prolonged driving with coolant/water in the motor your bearing will wear prematurly and cause parts to become looser then they are (hense the knocking sound). If you continue driving with the knock the motor will have a mechanical breakdown and more then likely throw a rod. THis is usually a motor swap at this point. Some mechanics will replace the bearings but either or you will nee extensive work to correct. The head gaskets need to be replaced/checked and the head for warpage/seepage and possibly a cracked block plus fixing the damage to the lower end. Its usually cheaper to purchase a new/used motor as this is somehting that will cost $1000's of dollars so please pick a reputable mechanic for this kind of work... If you have an extended warranty this is the time to use it..
