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: Head gasket blown. What is approximate cost to

    Considerations
  1. Many internal engine problems, such as a blown head gasket, cracked head or cracked piston, can be repaired without having to replace an entire engine.
  2. Potential
  3. While taking the time to replace an engine may seem labor-intensive and costly, it will add years to a vehicle's life and will save a car owner from the cost of having to buy a new car.
  4. Benefits
  5. Taking a car to a mechanic and replacing an engine with a used engine can cost between $1,000 to $2,000 for parts and labor.
  6. Solution
  7. Car owners interested in replacing their engines with new ones can expect to pay anywhere between $2,000 to $4,000.
  8. Speculation
  9. For those interested in doing the engine replacement themselves, purchasing specialized tools needed for the job is a cost to consider in addition to the price of a replacement engine.

Timing belts usually have an automatic (spring Loaded) adjuster. Usual replacement is done at 100,000 k or 60,000 miles. If you do not replace it you run the risk of it breaking which could do damage to the engine. refer to your owners manual.

Clunking noise when I hit bumps fuel low it stalls oil in anti-freeze


You probably have a cracked cylinder head. Has the car overheated or been run really low on
oil?

Could also be a blown head gasket. But the clunking sound when you hit bumps makes me
think the one of the cylinder heads is cracked.

But oil in the antifreeze is a sign of:

1) Cracked cylinder head.
2) Cracked engine block
3) Blown head gasket.

I think its a cylinder head because its a lot easier to crack a cylinder head than an engine
block.

Buick Park Avenue 1998 head gasket repair the mechcanic said it has blown head gasket and the engine must be removed to repair is this true


The engine does not need to be removed to replace the head gasket on your engine. More than likely it is an intake gasket that failed and showing the typical symptoms of a blown head gasket. If the intake gasket repair is put off long enough, it can turn into a blown head gasket and I've only had about a 50% success rate replacing the head gasket. They usually work fine for a few months, but the oil and water mix causes the oil to lose it's lubricating properties and even after fixing the cause of the problem, the damage may already be done to the engine bearings and the engine may knock later on down the road. You may want to get a quote on a used replacement engine if you plan on keeping the vehicle for a while and compare to the price of fixing it. In the long run, it will probably be a better solution.

I have a 1998 Holden Astra eng noEL20B24119 and want to know the Head bolt torque settings and sequence. The engine is the transition model with twin tappet cover seals. has the torx star headed bolts.


I cannot find a EL20B in my data,but all Astra listed had the same head sequence as shown:

10 6 2 3 7

9 5 1 4 8

the torque specs for the C20XE,C20NE,X20XEV were all
25nm(18lb/ft),-then 90 deg,-90deg,-90deg.
Z20LET were as above plus an additional 15deg.
Same data for smaller and larger engines(except a couple that were 45deg instead of 15)
Make sure that you replace the head bolts with new,they are torque to yield bolts that are designed to stretch to 'plastic' state,and should not be reused.
Put grease(graphite if you have it) under bolt heads and washers,oil the threads.
Usually the head sets come with the torque specs.
I hope this helps you.
