Is it wise to put head sealer in a engine for one blown head?

Civic has one blown head out exhaust end, runs great, but will overheat if ran to long because coolant is going out tailpipe

SOURCE: car overheat

The rad fan is required to keep your engine at a normal operating temp. When you are going at hiway speeds the fan is not needed. When you stop then the fan has to operate to keep the engine cool.If the fan is not operating, it could be the fuse or fan relay or temp sensor or computer This problem should be checked by someone who is a professional..

SOURCE: looking into buting a 1987

you may have tiped the carburator over when you tore engine it apart and a needle may not be seating right causing it to get the wrong amount of gas it could be flooding the engine or not enough when going uphill or down rebuild the carb and it will run alot better probably.

If you are sure about blown head gasket, I recommend you don't move the car unless towed beacuse oil can get into antifreeze or antifreeze into oil, and that'd be so sad so you have to check all water lines(hoses) for leaking and clean and ccheck radiator if no check or service engine lights on dash, I hope this helps and good luck!

Toyota truck does it have to over heat to blow a head gasket


You don't need to overheat to blow a head gasket.

One other test you can do is remove the radiator cap and run the engine. There is likely to be lots of bubbles and perhaps even spouting of water out of the radiator if the head gasket has blown.

It certainly sounds like you have this issue.
By the way, you will use up all the coolant and damage the engine if you continue to run it with a blown gasket.

Temp gauge shot up to max, grey smoke out of exhaust, never boiled up,car tried to run but lumpy, now no water in rad but oil is normal, filler bottle cap wont screw back on,, peugeot 405


sounds like blown head gasket (through exhaust port) fill with water and start up, look under car, and see if water is coming out of the exhaust pipe)note: if head gasket is blown thru exhaust port you won't have water in the oil. it will come out of the exhaust. if this is the case then possibly can fix with (k&w block sealer or comparable block sealer) since no water in oil engine should be fine.) but follow directions to a T on block sealer if you don't it could stop up the radiator and you'd be back in the same position. also make sure you fix problem that caused it, probably bad thermostat or water pump.

Car overheats, losing antifreeze...the overflow coolant reservoir leaks out onto the ground when I try to put antifreeze in there - so could this cause my car to overheat? I have had the antifreeze drained...


Hello, if your car has a blown head gasket and exhaust is entering the coolant system, it will continue to run hot until it is repaired. Using pure antifreeze will make it worse. It should be at least 1/2 water. If the coolant reservoir didn't leak you could probably drive a few more miles, but not many, before it overheats again. All that is doing is giving you a little more capacity. If you continue to run the engine hot you are going to do more serious damage to it.
I suggest you have the head gasket replaced. That stuff you put in there seldom works, and if it does work, it's only temporary.

I hope this helps.

My 99 suburban with 178,000 mile ran hot. I poured water in the radiator before it cooled and when I cranked it steam blew out of the tailpipe. It ran long enough to pull it into a parking space. The next...


I have repaired head gaskets with this product. It is the only one I would use.You must follow the instructions to the letter.It is only available on line.I do not trust the stuff off the store shelves.Here 's the link watch the video.If your head gasket is fixable this is the stuff.When you get it to run I also recomend the new super cool additives they ( strauss,autobarn) sell they can reduce engine temperature by 10 degrees. Good Luck.

Oil in overflow of radiator.


If you have coolant mixed in you oil you have blown a head gasket at the very least. You will have to pull the heads and replace the gasket.

'95 Honda Civic EX will not start after cleaning fuel injectors


I would talk to who cleaned the injectors, I don't know if it something they did or not. It could be a stuck open injector. The exhaust would have a raw fuel odor if it was. What it sounds like is a blown headgasket, which can just happen. The exhaust would have a sweet smell to it. Usually starts as a small leak (between cyl. 2 & 3), the engine burns the coolant while driving which you don't see. Then the coolant level gradually drops to a point where the car overheats, which warps the head, causing a large leak. Now you see the coolant burning (white smoke).
Good luck Honda Al
