SOURCE: head gasket on my 1990 toyota V6 3.0

I would highly recommend that you go to the local parts store and purchase a Haynes Manual for your vehicle, they are around $ 25.00 Canadian. As when you do your head gasket you wil need to remove your timing belt and this is a procedure in it's self. then you will neen certain torque settings. This manual will provide you with all of this information step by step. they are designed for the do it yourselfer. They also cover many other issues that you may come across through out the ownership of your vehicle. I know that the last ting you need is an added exspence but these manuals are well worth the small investment. There is a site that you can find hrough google search that you can find factory service repair manuals for your vehicle, however they only have a layout for a 4 cylinder engine in there drawings and this is alot different then the 6 cylinder. As the procedure for repairs is totally different. I hope that this helps and that you take the time to rate any solutions you receive. Good Luck.

SOURCE: 1992 Toyota Previa van,Oil dripping onto exhaust manifold, replace head gasket? need a free manual!

The toyota previa uses a formed silicone gasket for the valve cover and the cover is held in place by metric shoulder bolts ( 10mm). The valve gasket leaks because you can't get enough preload on the bolts to re-seat the old gasket when it gets old and shrinks. The shoulder bolts only allow you to tighten the gasket enough to seat the shoulder on the bolt. If you continue to torque down the suspected bolts, you will snap the bolt off ( don't ask me how I know this ). You can either 1.)replace the old gasket with a new one or 2.) remove the existing bolts around the leak area and put in new metric bolts that do not have a shoulder. You may want to put in a small sleeve into the existing bolt hole but shorter than the thickness of the valve cover to account for the smaller diameter bolt. You can now torque down the bolt and get enough preload to seal the valve cover without removing the old gasket. Make sure you use a torque wrench ( in-lbs) or be very careful not to snap these small valve cover bolts.

SOURCE: 1994 toyota pickup blown head

So the first question is ... is it really a blown head gasket? Could also be damaged head, block, etc and the timing chain can wear through it's housing and allow coolant into the oil. If it is a blown head gasket then why did it happen? Is the head warped, coolant passages corroded, or ?? Here's link to
a '93 manual to give you some idea what you're dealing with. http://personal.utulsa.edu/~nathan-buchanan/93fsm/ Can you replace the gasket in shop or driveway ... depends on what sort of
complications you run in to. You may want to have a valve job done while you're there, maybe
time to do the timing chain, etc. Give it a try.

Overheating replaced the thermostat it was find and its leaking out the side of the over flow tank.


sounds like a blown headgasket. when it is cold and you start it squeeze a radiator hose while it is cold and if it is hard(has pressure) then head gasket. also check for white milky antifreeze. CAUTION cooling systems are under pressure and contain boiling hot water. If you are not experienced do not attempt to fool with the radiator /cooling system. blown gasket repair $400-600

Toyota wont start over heated replace the thermostat and radiator cap could it be the water pump is bad how do I tell


if it wont start immediatly after it overheated then you may have blown the head gasket, or melted a coolant temp sensor or other sensor or wire. look closly for the melted stuff. remove radiator cap and fill with water to the top of the rim. have someone crank it and if a air bubbles come out while cranking then a headgasket is most likely blown. some little bubbles at first dont mean nothing. its a steam of bubbles the whole time its being cranked that indicates head gasket

Yesterday the car over heat and stop by the time aaa came it started back but shakes a little then stop when u cut it on think its the motor how much do a motor cost for a toyota camery 1994 used or new


it is very possible that the head gasket is blown and the head is warped an engine new will cost about 3000.00 and used anywhere from 500.00 to 900.00 and installation is not included if the car does not have a whole lot of miles it would be safe to replace the head gasket and have the old head tested for leaks and warps or replaced which would be considerably less than a new engine

I have a mixture of antifreeze and oil that started leaking on the ground. I don't know what to check. It's a 2002 Kia Rio. Any suggestions?


It sounds like the headgasket needs to be replaced. Please be sure to have the mechanic who replaces the head gasket also change the oil immediately before starting the car. If you have anti-freeze in the oil, it could blow the engine later on down the road!

Blown head gasket


Look the engine over and see if you can find any external leaks, change the thermostat and make sure that fan(s) are operating.
Check the oil for water...loosing that much, it has to show up somewhere. Blown headgasket usually puts oil in coolant or coolant in oil, causes an external leak from between head and block or goes out through the tailpipe as steam.
look carefully and you will find your problem!!

Need to know what parts should be replaced when changing the timming belt on a 2001 toyota camery 4cyl


Hi. Since you took the chance of opening the engine to replace the timing belt, you might replace the seals and gaskets for the head, cover, and crankcase, including the valve seals. in this way you will add brand new seals, minimizing or eliminating any leak problems. Also, try to use shur-tak spray. This one hold the gaskets in place while putting the engine back together and adds a protective layer to them as well. Ask for it at any parts store.

Blown headgasket caused from overheating


I would definitely replace both head gaskets while you're there. It's just cheap insurance.

Blown head gasket


Yes, driving around with a blown headgasket is BADDDD....

If you've never replaced a headgasket before then I would suggest that you not try it without proper supervision and help.
On a v8 when you replace one headgasket you replace the other as well. The gasket kit comes as a set of 2 headgaskets and all other gaskets and o-rings that will need to be replaced. You will need an array of tools to accomplish the mission - some hand tools and some specialty tools for dismantling the cylinder head.
I'm really not trying to scare you off but this is NO SMALL JOB. It will require patience and it will require tools and prior knowledge - so get the HAYNES RePAIR manual for the car and read up if you decide to go for it. I did the headgastets on my Acura Legend v6 - and what should have taken 30 hours start to finish took about 55.
Good Luck and Happy Motoring!!!!!!!
