As longest it does not get hot you fine, but you must repair it soon, water might get into the oil thus ruining the engine furthermore.

there are many was a head gasket can blow . sometimes they just leak to the outside sometimes they leak to the coolant and then it blows out your antifreeze. if you have a blown head gasket you will see it when you pull the head. and yes you should hace the head checked at a machine shop and install with a new head set never reuse a gasket .

SOURCE: blown head gasket

I would change both, as well as use new head bolts. Make sure your heads are not warped or cracked, especially the one that is leaking. There may not be any need to change the head if it is not cracked. These are prone to blowing a gasket especially after 150K miles or so. It will not cost a huge additional amount to change both head gaskets since the engine will have to be disassembled down to the heads anyway. Hope this helps you, Rick

How would i know if my overheating problem in my 97 Geo Metro Prizm is a radiator, water pump, blown head gasket, cracked head or a thermostat problem. is there some way i can check for this?


Oil and coolant mixed usually means the engine is damaged.
Blown head gasket, or cracked block - head.
You may have coolant in the engine oil too.
I would not drive it.

Sounds to me like the head gasket is blown, but there may be sealant in the system which is making it intermittently leak antifreeze into the cylinders.

A bad cylinder head gasket will also cause a compromise in compression, which will cause a lack of power.

Time to overhaul or replace the engine's head gasket, or replace the engine with one that doesn't have a blown head gasket.

Good luck on this repair.

A mechanic says we need a new water pump, but if the head gaskets are blown, there is no use in putting in a water pump. He said that basically, the car is no good if the gaskets are blown. We can't...


How do you know the head gaskets are blown? Typically on most engines, if the head gasket(s) goes bad, it will either blow white smoke out the tailpipe or cause the water in the overflow tank to boil.
If the car is just overheating after a few minutes of driving, the cause could be a bad thermostat.

You have blown head gasket mate. The pressure from the blown gasket may have blown a hole in the radiator which is why the fluid is comeing out. dont drive while overheating engine will be no more good also check oil for water it will be a brown colour if there is water in it that 100% blown head gasket.

Water in the oil leaks out below manifold do I have a blown head gasket and do those V-6 engines crack heads easily?


Most likely it's a blown head gasket. The heads dont usually crack unless you were driving it a lot while it was overheating.

Losing Coolant


You may very well have an internal leak as in a blown head gasket. If you see white smoke from the exhaust and it smells sweet that is a definate sign you do. You may also notice a white foam on the underside of the oil cap and the oil level may be over full. Remove the radiator cap, engine cold, and start the engine. If you see air bubbles escaping you have a blown head gasket or cracked head. Stop driving the car until you verify this with a compression test. Severe engine damage will occur if you continue to drive this car, if the head gasket is blown.

Oil in radiator dead miss in #3 cyl 1994 ford explorer 4X4 also runs hot in about 18 miles with ac on could this be a blown head gasket or something else


If there is oil in the radiator - DO NOT DRIVE THE CAR. You are risking serious engine damage. After you change the head gasket, you must change the oil and the antifreeze. You definitely have at least a blown head gasket. On the bright side you know for sure which head to take off.
