Question about 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier

1 Answer

Fuel bar leak

I just replaced my head gasket and assorted gaskets.

After getting my car put back together and a start up, my fuel lead into the fuel bar was leaking heavily.

I do not remember there being any o-rings or gasket on either end (lead or return).

I found an o-ring that fit and put it on the intake end.

On start-up the lead was fine but the fuel return was spraying gas.

I cannot for the life of see what happened or what I may have over looked.

Any ideas?

Check both lines to be bolted in right, also some have o-rings some don't if you found one and worked for one line then you are missing one for the other line

I have a 2002 4WD Blazer. I just replaced tthe head gaskets and now have a bad coolant lea, Fuel leak, and it wont turn over

Unfortunately it sounds like the head gasket/s were not torqued down correctly with new stretch bolts. Sorry but it requires stripping down again and sorting out.

Fuel leaking into the carbuetor

Depending on the type of lawn mower, steal a carburetor off another mower, get a gasket kit/make some gaskets from copper gasket material, and put it all back together.

Starting problem

Sounds like the garage didn't do something correctly.

Apparently heads are a serious problem for BMW.

Here's a brief history and an unofficial description of BMW's position on their head problems:

Here's a step-by-step on the Timing Case ProfileGasket (aka, the head gasket) replacement for reference so you can see what should have been done:

However, the good news is that the difficulty starting and the fuel leak may be just the result of a clumsy re-assembly in fuel delivery bar. Check out:

Now doesn't replacing a few O-rings sound better than having to tear the head off again? :-)

1987 Volkswagen Jetta GL rough idling problem.

So far you have done all but change the leads! This will help dramatically BUT if your head gasket is blown I'm afraid you'll have real difficulty in get it to run smooth as water/steam is possibly mixing with the fuel causing very poor ignition.
I did the same as you on a Golf as soon as the new leads were fitted Bingo a New Car, However there wasn't a head gasket issue.
Good Luck and A Happy New Year to you and your Family.
