There is only Two way to Warp the Heads. Have you Overheated it past the Steaming Point? Have you Put Cold Water in When the Motor was Hot? These Things would Warp the Heads. If Not, You need to Check the Waterpump and Thermostat. Please Rate my Solution, I need all the Help that I can Get! Thanks!

YES it is possible to have warped heads. but this can come from overheating. would not cause it and there is no way to "smell" warped heads. you can usually smell if the motor has been cooked need to find out reason it is running hot. does it run fine? might just be a sticking thermostat

Engine seizure


that sounds like your radiator leaked. have you checked your oil lately? if it is a caramel color or milky brown,you've blown your head gasket.if you never over heated it does not make sense why it would blow.did it ever make a strange gurgling or bubbling sound and feel slightly rough while driving? if so that was you radiator and reservoir emptying out. if you have not driven it far and not warped the heads you can get a back yard mechanic it fix it for you for less than a shop would charge you . If the heads are warped, you will have to shave them down .And if thats the case you might wanna start car shopping .

Overheated and loss compression.


The most common cause is a blown head gasket and sometimes a warped head. Someone would need to remove the cylinder head and have it checked for damage, then replace the head gasket.

You never said if the heads were resurfaced or not. That copper stuff is a gasket and radiator sealant. It can plug up several tubes in the radiator. Check for a blown head gasket this way. Take the radiator cap off on a cold engine. Start the engine and watch for coolant to travel by looking in the radiator. When the thermostat opens, the level will do one of two things. 1) it will spit out and overflow out the filler. This would suggest a blocked radiator. 2) the level will drop and you will see the tops of some of the tubes in the radiator. If some of them are plugged, then a rerod of the radiator is needed. if there are bubbles in the coolant, this indicates a warped head or a blown head gasket. Anything you find won't be cheap to repair.

Depending on how bad it overheated, the timing belt may be broken or if it overheated to the point that the car shut off while running you may have serious engine damage.

Overheat smell


When the engine is cold, check the coolant level. if it's low, add enough to fill. Check the oil like this: Pull the dipstick out, wipe it clean, insert it back in the tube, wiggle it, pull it out and look closely. See if you spot what look like bubbles in the oil. This may indicate coolant is leaking past the head gaskets and getting burned, hence the overheating smell. Could be a leak at one of the hose fittings, or the hose itself, dripping onto hot metal parts. If it's a head gasket issue that needs to be addressed, but that's worst case. Check all the hoses and clamps, feel around for wetness, might just be a simple drip from a loose hose clamp.

Car stalls, oil light comes on, smoke from under hood


sound like the overheating of the engine did some internal damage. ethier an intake or head gasket or maybe even a warped or cracked head. worse case senero would be a cracked block. check the oil see if it looks milky like a grey sludge. most likely it is a head gasket. have a leak down test preformed to confirm. the labor for the head gaskets is 9 hours for 1 or 11.5 for 2. I would replace both and have the mechanic check the heads and block for cracks while he has it apart.

The cooling system could have air in it and need bleeding.I would suggest a pressure test on the system.If you are sure that it has to much pressure.I would suggest a compression test to eliminate blown head gaskets or cracked or warped heads.Also check you intake gaskets.Good Luck!!!!!
