SOURCE: head gasket blown

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

SOURCE: MIni Cooper S Head Gaskets Issues

the "sniffer" in this case is a device to detect the presents of combustion gasses in the water or radiator .... if there is a good head gasket seal then there should be no combustion gas in the water .... if there is even a small leak then the high pressure gasses will be forced into the water .. the opposite is true when you turn off the engine ... as it cools, pressure in the radiator can force water thru the leak back into the engine .... this also happens during the intake stroke .. so you would be losing water that you might see or smell come out the tail pipe ...the fact that the failure has happened a second time might indicate that you had a warped head or block .. or perhaps a micro crack or surface flaw.. those things should have been checked when the last repairs were done ... i am wondering if the repair shop might negotiate a reduced rate for the redo ... often heads are slightly machined to remove any warp or surface faults during such repairs (if any problems are suspected) ... a used replacement engine could have the same problem or worse .. so if yours is otherwise in good shape then it might be worth while to give it another go ,.. sounds like a good garage, hopefully they will cooperate ... and they might be interested in finding out themselves what happened ...

1999 Ford Taurus keeps running hot


Does it get hot mainly when parked or stopped at a red light or does it get hot even when the car is in motion?If its only when your stopped,the cooling fans are probably not working due to a blown fuse,relay or bad fan motor.If the coolant inside the reservoir seems to boil once the engine gets hot,that can be caused by a defective radiator cap.A blown head gasket will also cause overheating.If you let the engine idle for a few minutes,shut it off,pull all of the spark plugs,see if any plug or two adjacent plugs are wet with coolant, that's a sign of a blown head gasket.If you constantly need to refill the radiator with coolant, that's another sign.

Coolant and oil leak


have a compression test done as the bubbles suggest a blown head gasket or cracks. That will account for the overheating. The oil leak may be from the head gasket or cracks.

How much will a head gasket for a 2000 ford taurus cost


if it is just one and the mechanic is reasonable and there is no other damage ,ie main bearings, valves, cylinders scored, around 800 per head gasket and if one head needs to be shaved you better get the other head shaved and gasket replaced..i had my 2000 taurus done for 1200 couple years ago. it ran for a few years then developed low compression from the coolant leaking into the cylinders..never had luck with mine hope you are having better luck

How do I fix a cylinder head gasket on a 1994 ford tarus


WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS? WHAT DO YOU MEAN FIX IT?

Blown head gasket


Unfortunately there are too many things that could be wrong Most mechanics will not be tied to a price because the head gasket alone is probably not the only fault.Generaly the head itself is the culprit for the symptom your giving.It may be corroded or cracked and may not be repairable.Then theres all the other bits and pieces like hoses,thermostat etc.Once its all apart and can be inspected you will get your quote,head is usualy sent to machine shop to be inspected and a price for repair/replacement is given by them.Usualy takes a couple of days to get a full quote unless your mechanic has all the nessecary tools and equipment to do it on site.Good luck and hope it all works out ok
