Crandallyoun: replacing the head gasket on the motor will run roughly $7-800.00 excluding any incidentals. This is just the head gasket and labor There are variables.
As far as you changing it? This is a serious engine and an expensive one to make a mistake on. You can find Haynes manuals in the book stores which will give you the step by step with illustrations. There are also a few other publications. If you go on ebay you may even be able to buy a factory manuel.

Engine oil


Cracked head, intake gasket, head gasket or cracked block. Odds are on the gaskets. Try stop leak first given the car's age and expense of repair.

The oil motor goes to the radiator what do I do


Your head gasket is more than likely blown. Look for light to white film in your oil cap. This will confirm the gasket problem. This is a large expense if so.

If my head gasket is blown or have crack in the block will the car run hot quickly


if your head gasket is blown, you would know by the incredible white clouds of smoke coming from your exhaust. shut off engine immediately because you are contaminating the bearings underneath and the expense of repair will be almost as much as getting a new engine. what's happening there is you are burning your radiator fluid thru the whole motor. i say this because it happened to me on an oldsmobile calais.

Head gasket blown out and it will not start


You answered the second part of your question with the first part. Your car will not start because of the blown head gasket. You'll need to repair the head gasket and any other damage first. Often a blown head gasket is just a symptom of other problems and sometimes it's the cause of other problems.

Sorry to be the one to tell you but you have a major expense on your hands. It is either a blown head gasket (the cheapest solution) or a cracked head (the next most expensive solution) or a cracked block (don't ask! ). Take it to a shop and have them do a compression test to find out which cylinder is leaking. Then get at least three quotes on repairing the damage. Good luck!!

My bongo is overheating , I did a 350 mile run with no probs then the week after it blew all the water out of the header tank , cant find anything wrong , was thinking of changing the thermostat and...


Overheating and water blowing out of the header tank? Then you probably have a blown head gasket.

There is no cheap, quick or easy fix for this, but there is a quick cheap and easy way to rule it out as being the cause: get the vehicle to a decent repair garage and ask for a sniff test on the coolant. This involves taking a small sample of coolant and shaking it in a tube of indicator solution which changes colour if it detects exhaust residues which are only present in coolant if the head gasket has blown. If the gasket has not blown then you can start considering other (cheaper) causes such as a faulty pressure cap on the expansion tank.

Head gasket failures are always expensive to repair (despite the gasket itself being relatively cheap) and usually involve other repair work as well. The only certainty is that the sooner it's attended to, the lower the final cost. Given that your Bongo is now 14 years old, you might even find that it's cheaper and quicker to break yours for spares and to buy another vehicle. Head gasket failures are one of the most common causes for scrapping older vehicles and as some owners disguise the earliest symptoms of the fault in order to sell their vehicle on it's always getting a sniff test done on any used car purchase which is not covered by any sales guarantees.

Sorry that I cannot offer a quick fix this time, but the information which I've provided should enable you to avoid further unnecessary expense and assist you to decide what to do next.
