Hi bill.

actually, it is a good idea to replace the head only, as it will save you money from buying the whole engine.personally, i buy genuine used parts for my car, honda intergra, and nissan pulsar, saves me a lot of money.

if you are stuck, ill be right here

kind regards

What shpuld l do in the engine oil if there is coolant getting in one of my cylinders

If there is coolant getting into one of the cylinders you will probably have a failed head gasket.
Adding anything to the engine oil will not correct the head gasket problem.
As a temporary attempt at a fix, you can try adding an aluminized radiator sealant.
The permanent fix is to replace the head gasket.

My escort overheated so added water then i tried to start the car but it wont start, its cranks but it wont start

need add add antifreeze half antifreeze and water to raise coolant boiling point. replace thermostat and radiator pressure cap.wait until engine cool then try starting it up.depends on how long you drove car when engine over heated.if you turn off engine soon as it over heated no harm done.if you kept on driving and engine die of lack of cooling, and car wont crank you could have blown head gasket warped or cracked cylinder head.

Will not start shooting antifreez from cylinders

This is an indication of different major problems....blown head gasket, cracked cylinder head, cracked cylinder block...all the above require the engine to be disassembled and inspected by an experienced tech/machinist

Where do the spark plug and wires go on my 1999 nissan maxima

The Spark Plugs are located under the Coil Pack in the Cylinder Head. You need to remove the silver cover on the front part of the engine which are held down by Allen Bolts to access the Coil Pack. You will need to remove the two bolts holding the Coil Pack to the Cylinder Head. Pull up on the Coil to remove the Coil and inside the hole will be the Spark Plug. The rear part of the engine next to the firewall has no cover so you will need to just remove the Coil Pack. The Nissan Maxima is very picky about the brand of Spark Plugs you replace them with, You should only use NGK Platinum Plugs or Better in your Maxima, Any other brand will make your car run rough.

1999 micra eating water.

Hi mate unfortunately you do have a serious problem. The bubbles is from your combustion chamber when the engine had fired and the cylinder pressure is at its most and air from the cylinder is entering the cooling system. The water that is disappearing, is actually entering the combustion chamber when the cylinder is on its inlet stroke.
Ways to rectify
1. Buy a coolant test kit from your local spares shop that will test for exhaust gasses in the coolant, which we know will be possible so just start at my next point.
2. Remove your cylinder head and send it to your local engineering shop to be checked out for a crack or cracks, (the best way to crack test it is the Cummins way,to pressurize the cooling side inside the head to about 8-10bar and drop it in a hot water tank by the time the head is warm it will start to bubble.)
3. If this did not work make sure they had given you the right gasket and it looked the same with the holes and every thing.
4. If the head checked out OK, you will have to remove the block you might have a cracked cylinder. Get the block tested out also then

Overheating problem

When you had sent the cylinder head to the machine shop did they pressure test it?
If it had hair line crack there sure would be water lose in the radiator and also it would probabely too mix it wth engine oil.
Please recheck the valve clearance if they are tight you do sometimes get the over heating issues.
Check the thermostates operating what degrees must it open, try replace it with a lower temperature i mean the one to open earlier say if you have one which opens at 89 degrees C change it to a say one which opens at 79/80 degrees.
Hope this helps!

What would cause my cylinder head to crack on my 4.3 2000 Envoy?

The cylinder head is a crucial part of all combustion engines, and cylinder head cracking can result in catastrophic damage to the engine. In some cases, cylinder head cracking may result in such severe injury to the engine that it must be replaced. As a result, most motorists try to prevent cylinder head cracking, as an ounce of prevention in this case is worth many pounds of cure. The causes of cylinder head cracking are all relatively simple and easy to prevent, except in the case of mechanical parts failure through no fault of the operator. The cylinder head, used in combination with a head gasket, seals the cylinders of the car, along with other parts associated with them. The cylinder head is customized for the vehicle, and has very precisely milled surfaces to provide a smooth and flush fit with all connecting parts. In the case of a minor crack, the cylinders may lose compression and misfire. Major cracks can cause severe damage to the cylinders of the engine. For this reason, when replacing either the cylinder head or the head gasket, make sure that you are using the correct parts, including bolts, for the job. Even a brand new car can experience cylinder head cracking if parts have been installed incorrectly or if there are weaknesses in the metal. Especially in the case of a vehicle which is still under warranty, drivers should contest the cylinder head cracking with the dealer. Be certain to inspect any vehicle before you purchase to check for weak spots in the metal or incorrectly installed components. This includes the cylinder head gasket, because improper installation of this vital part can cause cylinder head cracking. Cylinder head cracking has become more common as car manufacturers use mixed metals in their engines. Many vehicles, for example, have a solid cast iron engine block but an aluminum cylinder head. These two metals expand at different rates, and this can lead to cylinder head cracking. The most common cause of cylinder head cracking is overheating. When a vehicle overheats, it puts stress on all of its metal components, including the cylinder head, which is often at the center of the heat. This can cause the head gasket to fail, which may lead to cylinder head cracking as the components warp and pressure begins to leak. All drivers should properly maintain their vehicles to prevent overheating. Many drivers mistakenly pour cool water into the radiator when their vehicles overheat, in an attempt to bring the temperature down. This is not a good idea, because the rapid temperature change will cause cylinder head cracking due to thermal stress. In a case where the cylinder head survives overheating, the driver may inadvertently destroy it by trying to do good. To prevent overheating, make sure that your radiator is filled and in good condition, with a tightly sealed cap. Check to be certain that your engine thermostat is in good working order, and accurately reflecting the temperature. Make sure that you have no leaky belts or stretched hoses, and that the fan is working effectively. If your car does overheat, stop, turn off the engine, and allow it to cool completely before adding water. Cylinder head cracking can also be caused by localized hot spots in the engine, which usually represent a failure in some portion of the cooling system. Always make sure that hot spots are addressed, particularly if your head gasket has failed and required replacement recently. Hot spots are often caused by uneven expansion of engine parts, leaky hoses, and pre-ignition in the cylinders of the engine. If your car has overheated, check the cylinder head and gasket for signs of cracking or warping. If the cylinder head has warped even slightly out a flush state, it will cause cylinder head cracking. In this case, the head gasket may need to be replaced and the cylinder head should be ground even again before it cracks. Thanks for using FiXya - a FiXya rating is appreciated!
