How do i check for a leaky head gasket?

Cylinder Head Gaskets
A few explanatory notes...

The cylinder head gasket is a complex seal within the engine intended to keep cooling water, engine oil and the combustion process separate.

The life of a cylinder head gasket is very stressful and deterioration begins the moment a new engine is started for the first time and continues at a rate depending on the usage and the design of the engine.

It is almost inevitable that the cylinder head gasket will fail at sometime in the life of the engine and replacement will be needed.
Occasionally a complete head gasket failure is sudden (and disastrous for the engine as serious overheating can take place) but mostly symptoms or clues indicating the continuing deterioration of the gasket is resulting in it failing to do its job properly are present for a long time before complete failure occurs...

When two, or more, of the following symptoms are present most or all of the time it is time to seek help and advice: -

  1. Residual pressure in a cold cooling system.
  2. Pressure in cooling system immediately or very soon after start-up (while still cold).
  3. Abnormal amount of bubbles seen rising through coolant expansion bottle (if it is clear plastic) while the engine is running.
  4. Misfire occurring regularly on start-up that clears rapidly (cold or just-warm engine).
  5. Steady coolant loss but no external leaks.
  6. Abnormally large amounts of vapour from the tailpipe continuing longer than normal and might be accompanied by a spray of water. Some vapour and some droplets of water are normal, especially in cooler weather.
  7. Unusual or erratic heater operation (warm/cold not electric fan) often accompanied by unusual temperature gauge indications.
  8. Engine oil level does not fall in spite of usage or even seems to be getting higher: oil might also have a lighter coloured or creamy appearance than is usual.
  9. Oily deposits floating on top of coolant.
  10. Emulsion present under oil filler cap and/or dipstick. Some emulsion (or mayonnaise) is usual for many engines under some circumstances.

Head gasket replacement is not a routine operation and it usually is not possible to predict the amount of work required before dismantling has taken place. For reasons of long term economy and reliability it might also be advisable to have other work carried out at the same time, such as timing belt replacement, valve stem oil seal replacement, etc.

Why sometime pleinty white smoke came out of exaust

White Smoke...
1. Typically normal condensation in the exhaust system converting to steam once engine is running and producing heat creates white smoke. Typically this lasts only a short period of time until condensation water in the exhaust system is gone.

2. If there is a problem, persistent white exhaust could be an indication of a water leak into the cylinders (e.g. cracked head or leaking head gasket. The good news is, this second case will normally will occur with other problems (e.g. consistent rough idle, or rough engine vibration at specific RPMs). If this is suspect, keep an eye on the oil with the dip stick and during next oil change (If any of the oil appears WHITE, there is a problem.). If this is a suspect problem, a test for the DIY'r mechanic would be to remove all the spark plugs, have another person turn the engine over, and watch for water mist to spray out of one or more cylinders.

Because you said sometimes, this sounds like normal condition.

To oil press down to 0 when engine is running

Check Oil Pressure Switch, make sure is properly connected and working, if all seems OK, take vehicle to a Garage to have Oil Pump tested. I would recommend not to drive the vehicle if Oil Pressure Switch is or seems to be working correctly, damage to the engine and components can occur.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

Driver's headlight is dim; wipers only work if headlight is off

Sounds like the jolt from the barrier has caused a bad ground to occur. Look for a bad ground wire around the left headlamp in or around the headlight bucket.
Tighten or replace the bad ground wire. A poor contact will cause the headlight to light dimly.

Wrong oil

I wouldn't worry much unless it lasts for more than a few weeks after the next oil change. What you're probably hearing is the valves rattling. This is because of the very low consistency of the oil. I wouldn't recommend 5w20 for any engine personally, as when it is at normal operating temperature it's more like water then oil. I'd simply change the oil again after a couple days and let the new oil feed out any of the 5w20.

If this problem persists, I'd definitely take it to the shop to have checked just some internal damage occured.

On a side note, a good idea for you; get a can of oil treatment such as STP or Valvoline. This can help revive the consistency of the oil and possibly quiet that sound. But, it'll definitely help keep the oil where it should be.

I have a 1989 Toyota Supra GA70, It has an A340E Autoatic Transmission. The problem is sometimes during takeoff it is very sluggish, this only happens sometimes, and other time it takes off normally. ...

EASY! first take down the valve body and remove the soleniods, they may not need replacing, inspect and cean them, it could just be debris! reinstall everything, if the problem still occurs replace just the solenoids
