    I recently took my 2005 volvo s40 to get looked at b/c it was leaking oil. I have not noticed any mechanical problems at all. After I took it in the shop they said I Had a leak in my head gasket but I have not noticed any symptoms of a head gasket leak. He wants to replace the head gasket for $2000. Could it be something else or Should I try those head gasket sealers?

I have a massive oil leak coming from my timing cover (or gasket) in my 2000 Toyota Camry. ( About 1/2 a quart for five minutes of idle) How much does this cost to repair and how did this happe


You have more problems than the timing cover. It sounds like your crank seal is gone, or you engine oil pump leaking. Your timing cover doesn't have oil in it. . Tell your 'Mechanic '' to take the timing cover off and see where it's coming from. And while you are there you should also change your water pump. They usually have about the same life span as the timing chain. Make sure you use all new gaskets O ring and seals. Let me know what it looks like after the cover is removed. You have to remove the valve cover on some toyotas to get at the cover. Hope this info helps keep me informed Cheers from Nova Scotia

Why is coolant coming out of the timing chain case


Could be a blown head gasket. The timing chain is lubricated by the oil system and the oil should not be contaminated by coolant. This also means that you will be low on coolant.

Does timing belt gasket have anything to do with the coolant


No, It depends on the car, I am not familiar with the engine in your olds, is it a belt or chain? Usually with a belt, you don't even need a timing cover, it is just a belt protector, a chain is a different story and will ride in oil. If you have a coolant leak up front there, it could be the water pump, or one of the many coolant lines that run back and forth in small pipes and hoses. If you have oil in the radiator or water in the oil, you have a blown head gasket, you can check this with a comp check, any radiator shop will do it and tell you exactly what piston is bad. Head gasket jobs are expensive, we found it cheaper to replace the engine.

1992 ford explorer. Hit a deer. Messed up front end. Need to replace gasket behind timing chain cover to fix water leak. Already replaced water pump. still have the leak. Can timing chain cover be replaced...


sounds like the engin took a real wack????
i hope you eat that deer!! its cost you dear to fix it?
you could do the gasket in place but its a right old job,,,when mine started leaking i just tiped in a big bottle of rad weld or block weld (stop leak) what ever you call it,,, it stoped the leak dead in its tracks for years (3 or 4 years) till i sold the truck??
as for bad running yes it could be the crank sensor or that water leak getting every thing wet??
