SOURCE: 2000 camry. blown head gasket (daughter drove car

Yes, you can, but not exactly recommended. If you are going to go that deep into it, then might as well do everything else. However, being unemployed tends to have a negative impact on the wallet....

I suspect it is more than just rings. I think that the walls have been scored badly as well. You may be able to use a borescope to take a peak into the cylinder through spark plug hole. Move the piston to bottom of stroke, and see what you can see. If scarred, much work will be needed. If hatches look alright, then you might be able to get away with just rings.

What kind of compression are you getting on #1 vs #2? This also might be a blown headgasket into an oil passage, or the head (perhaps block?) is ever so slightly warped in this area.

SOURCE: overheating on ford bantam

there are three probable causes that may result to overheating one inadequate circulation of coolant within the cooling system. The radiator is clogged with dirt some stems are closed.try to flush the radiator using rad flushing fluid. Second improper bleeding of trap air within the cooling system. Third the water pump blades are worn out inadequate circulation of coolant.

    Cylinder head bolts may only be reused one time. If reusing a cylinder head bolt, place a paint mark on the bolt after installation. If a cylinder head bolt has a paint mark, discard it and use a new bolt. NOTE: Refer to Section 1 of this manual for the cylinder head torque sequence illustration. The illustration is located after the Torque Specification Chart.
  4. Install the cylinder head with a new gasket. Coat the threads of bolt No. 11 with Loctite® F 592 sealant. CAUTION
    During the final tightening sequence, bolt No. 11 will be tightened to a lower torque value than the rest of the bolts. Do not overtighten bolt No. 11.
  5. Tighten the cylinder head bolts, in sequence, as follows:
    1. Step 1: 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm)
    2. Step 2: 45 ft. lbs. (61 Nm)
    3. Step 3: 45 ft. lbs. (61 Nm)
    4. Step 4: Bolts 1–10 to 110 ft. lbs. (149 Nm)
    5. Step 5: Bolt 11 to 100 ft. lbs. (136 Nm)
    6. Step 6: Bolts 12–14 to 110 ft. lbs. (149 Nm)
    7. Step 7: Repeat steps 4, 5 and 6
  6. Install or connect the following:
    • ECT sensor connector
    • Spark plugs
    • Thermostat housing coolant hoses
    • Combination manifold
    • Fuel line
    • Power steering pump and bracket, if equipped
    • A/C compressor and bracket, if equipped
    • Accessory drive belt
    • Pushrods and rocker arms in their original positions
    • Valve cover
    • Control cable bracket
    • Transmission cable, if equipped
    • Cruise control cable, if equipped
    • Accelerator cable
    • Air cleaner assembly
    • CCV hoses
    • Negative battery cable
  7. Fill the cooling system.
  8. Start the engine and check for leaks.

I hv a Corsa 1.4 2003 Utility, we hv chngd d rings & bearings & sent d Head to d engineer's for conditioning, now the engine oil comin out thru d manifold & d valves under d piston had oil as well.


under piston in cylinder is where the oil should be but everywhere else is a problem -----if the head not bolted down correctly and torqued gasket can be damaged and allow oil to pass --if piston rings not put on correctly will allow oil to blow pass --valve guides not correct-valves not seated -rockers/pushrods if not correctly installed or torqued incorrectly will cause blow by and possible more damage to engine

What is causing overheating?


Check your oil dipstick. If there's a grey/creamy sludge on it that means water is finding its way into the oil system. Your cylinder head gasket/cylinder head is faulty.

Fill your coolant bottle. Leave the top off. Start the engine and watch the coolant level. To begin with, you will see air bubbles escaping. This is normal. If bubbles continually appear or the coolant level 'shakes' violently, this indicates that exhaust gas is finding its way into the cooling system via a cracked cylinder head/faulty head gasket. Also look at the exhaust gas - is it clouds of white? If so - that's steam from water being burnt in the engine - a head problem.

Over heating is a sign of a cracked cylinder head/faulty head gasket.

The other causes of overheating includes a stuck thermostat or a leaking/blocked radiator.

If there's no sign of a coolant leak underneath your vehicle - suspect the cylinder head gasket

Why is there no compression in engine on my 1991 mitsubishi pajerno


This has to be because of a mechanical problem in the engine. Possible sources are the timing belt is broken (one indication is the starter spins the engine faster than normal, because the camshaft that opens and closes valves is not turning with the crankshaft), or the head gasket has failed (from overheating as the most likely cause), or badly worn piston rings and/or valves not sealing well (common on high mileage engines).
Compression is built up in the upper part of the cylinder where combustion occurs, so leaks or lost compression are due to valves not sealing, or head gasket that seals the cylinder head to the engine block-sometimes the aluminum cylinder head can warp due to overheating, and the head gasket no longer can maintain a seal. Or also the piston rings are worn so bad that compression will leak past them into the crankcase. For valves or head gasket, the cylinder head has to be removed and repaired. For the rings, the engine has to be rebuilt entirely.
First check if the timing belt is still intact.

What do i need to do to replace pistons and rings on a corsa utility


Normally would squirt some oil into the cylinder spark plug hole and check compression again. If it's better, then may be rings. But no compression seems more like a head gasket or stuck open valve.

Car overheated now wont start


If you have had the vehicle hot then I would suspect that you will have a breached head gasket at the very least depending on how hot it was and for how long. You may have damaged other component of the engine as well. Remove the spark plugs and inspect for water on top of the pistons or rotate the engine with the spark plugs removed and watch for water purging from the cylinders. If there is water present then you need to have the head gaskets replaced and the cylinder heads checked by a reputable machine shop for cracks. Other components of the engine should also be checked for damage such as the piston rings.

2005 Kia sedona over heated motor died ,cranks and turns over but will not start .whats the problem ?


What's the problem??? I think you pretty much explained it yourself...the engine has been overheated! You most likely have damaged cylinder heads and/or cylinder block, pistons, crank shaft, cam shaft, etc.. I would recommend having it checked by a professional to see if it is even worth repairing or if the engine must be replaced.

I have a 2003 dodge durango 4.7 and it is overheating which i already r&r the thermostat. fixed the problem a lil but not 100%. also check engine light turned on for second time both same code P0308...


yes... overheating can cause issues in your piston/cylinder head. if your cylinder head is made from aluminum and not metal, overheating can cause cracks and bends in your cylinder head. if this cracks occur inside the combustion chamber, then proper compression cannot be attained. you need to rebore then resleeve your combustion chamber and change the pistons to fix this issue. this will also require resurfacing of cylinder head to ensure that it does not create leaks against crankcase.

Overheating in really hot part of day and especially with Ac


The block sealer you used may have been too thick or too big. A leaking head gasket or cracked head is a rare cause for a cylinder misfire. Tryin putting a manufacture gasket back on and change the spark plugs. If that doesnt work, try checking your valves or pistons-- maybe you have worn valve guides or your cylinder wall is worn out.

Engine oil in antifreeze


you have either cracked the block cracked the heads or taken out the headgaskets. this can be an expensive fix to do it right you will need to rebuild or replace the engine.

Engine runs but has steam coming out of exhaust pipe


The ONLY way coolant can get into the crankcase is through a crack in the cylinder head, block, or head gasket. THE ONLY WAY!.

Checking compression was a good idea, and you've confirmed that is not where the leak is. It could be somewhere else within a head, the block, or head gasket.

Any gasoline engine will blow steam from the exhaust pipe on start-up and a few minutes running. May even stink, depending on how sensitive your nose is to smell.

I think your going to have to dig deeper into this, if you truly had coolant in the oil. But to tell you exactly where to look is not going to be easy.
