Renaut 5 camps prima - 94M Engine overheating

Hi The garage say the head gasket is blown and the block probably cracked. They say that is why the water is not circulating and boiling in the header tank and creating lots of steam. They say steelseal won't work. But is it worth a try? I've nothing to lose except for £30. Does this analysis by the garage sound correct. There is no water in the oil you see.

If the water is not circulating this will be done to a worn water pump

How would i know if my overheating problem in my 97 Geo Metro Prizm is a radiator, water pump, blown head gasket, cracked head or a thermostat problem. is there some way i can check for this?


Oil and coolant mixed usually means the engine is damaged.
Blown head gasket, or cracked block - head.
You may have coolant in the engine oil too.
I would not drive it.

Overheating and watery oil


Water in the oil means one of 3 things:

1) Cracked or warped cylinder head
2) Cracked engine block
3) Blown head gasket

Blown head gasket is the best you can hope for. And cracked or warped cylinder head is next most likely. A cracked engine block is least likely of the three. Have you noticed anything unusual, heard any noises? And has the car overheated really badly?

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.

Blown head gasket


Hi,
Your car get overheating before. Please replace your head gasket with original one. Inspect your engine block for crack.

Try removing the thermostat and then remove the bleeder screw, put in the water hose in the radiator/expansion tank and see if the water comes out with pressure. If yes the system is not restricted but otherwise probably the radiator is blocked.

Possible cracked block or head


A cracked block often results in oil in the antifreeze. A cracked head or blown gasket is often heard while accelerating plus it my chug or miss. Take it to another garage and get the system pressure tested. I am not sure if thats what you meant by "a carbonation test". Check for milky looking oil on the dipstick first. If its normal then have the garage inspect the head for leaks using an ultraviolet light around the heads. It may a clogged rad or a faulty water pump too, even a faulty rad cap. Let me know any more info when this is checked. I hate to see someone ripped off.
