The cylinder that is missing will indeed set a code, all 96 up cars and trucks sold in the US have this self diagnostic ability, the system is called OBD 2
Yes you are right the repair should be performed for free if it is the same problem, head or head gasket, take this matter up with your local authorities dept of consumer affairs if the shop refuses to help you.

Drop in to autozone, or Pep boys and have it scanned, free, for trouble codes then go from there. Could be something simple & cheap

SOURCE: misfire on #6 and #8 cylinder 1996 Dodge Ram 1500

Check the spark plug wiring . There are several places where the wires cross each other. These wire cross points MUST be at right angles to each other. Or you will have a misfiring problem.

My engine management light stays on after resetting clylinder gasket chech ok


Having it checked only satisfies you - not the sensors that indicate a problem.
Resetting the fault code does not change the sensor.
I have never heard of a Diagnostic trouble code (DTC) that indicated you have a cylinder head gasket problem!

Engine coolant level drops on Mercedes C180 2001 model


Loss of coolant is serious because if you allow your engine to overheat you can cause very expensive engine damage - thousands of dollars of damage (not hundreds).

The items that need looking at are:

- Radiator cap is old and faulty. This can allow coolant to escape and needs to be replaced every 4 or 5 years (sometimes sooner) with the correct spec cap - not any old product picked up at some auto store.

- External leak - you need to check all flexible coolant hoses and connections for leaks as well as around the water pump to ensure the WP gasket is not leaking

- Internal leak
The most common is a blown cylinder head gasket which can allow coolant to escape and to get into the cylinders and into the lubrication system. If getting into the cylinders you will see white smoke coming from the exhaust . You need to check the engine oil for coolant contamination as a coolant can escape into the lubrication system via a damaged head gasket. You also need to check the coolant for signs of oil escaping under pressure via the blown head gasket into the cooling system.

An internal leak can also be caused by a cracked cylinder head but if you have this condition are blown head gasket will have probably occurred around the same time.

Engine management light stays on


check whether you do have a smell of fuel or burnt gasket in the radiator after remove the cap. If so then you have an overheated engine and blown gasket. Or check whether if you have either water in engine oil or vice versa. Having any of the two,surely you have to remove cylinder head for renewing cylinder head gasket etc.

Where is the head gasket located at on a 1994 grand marquis


The head gasket (in your case gaskets) is located on the top of the engine block under the engine cylinder head which is under the Camshaft cover which is the very top of the engine. This car is a V8 engine so it has 2 heads and 2 head gaskets, one on each side of the engine. It is a very expensive job to replace head gaskets.

Replacing a cylinder head gasket is a miss or a hit. In some cases, just replacing the gasket may work. But if the cylinder head is bend, dealer may ask to replace it, because "machined aluminum heads rarely works". In this case the cost may be more than $1000. It is a good idea to send the cylinder head for inspection, in a machine shop. They charge $150 for inspecting, checking, cleaning and if necessary machining the head.
If the timing belt will be replaced this is an extra cost. If someone will just replace the gasket, on a bend cylinder head, it is more likely to blow out again. This problem can be solved if the gasket be replaced properly, checking and taking care for the cylinder head too.
As the coolant warms up, it expands and for that reason you have two marks at coolant bottle. Down cold and up hot. It is normal for the coolant to overflow from coolant bottle, if it is filled to the upper mark with engine cold, way up the cold coolant mark. Let engine to cool down overnight and set the level at coolant bottle at the lover mark cold. If it will overflow again this is a bad sign. The pressure at combustion chamber varies from 75 in idle up to 150 or more in higher RPM. If the cylinder head gasket is blown, then gases are blown into the cooling system, increasing the pressure, the radiator cap pressure relief valve is open and coolant is discharged in the coolant bottle. In such cases it is common for the coolant bottle to boil. You can observe gases discharging in the bottle, mixed with coolant, from the cooling system. These are symptoms of a blown cylinder head gasket. Because you replaced it once, there might be a bad (bend, deformed) CYLINDER HEAD too.
To find it out you have to perform cylinder compression test on your car (PROFESSIONALLY).
1. Start with a normal ("static") compression test. To eliminate rings, valves, holes in pistons, that sort of things. A normal cylinder balance test is also helpful (so you know which, if any, cylinder is presenting a problem). Engine should be warm.
2. Put all spark plugs but one back in. Ground that plug wire to prevent module damage. Disconnect that injector on a port fuel system.
3. Put your compression tester into the empty hole. The test can be done without a Shrader valve, but most people recommended leaving the valve in the gauge and "burping" the gauge every 5-6 "puffs".
4. Start the engine and take a reading. Write it down
5. Now goose the throttle for a "snap acceleration" reading. Reading should rise. Write it down NOTE: Don't use the gas pedal for this snap acceleration. The idea is to manually open then close throttle as fast as possible while without speeding up the engine. This forces the engine to take a "gulp" of air.
6. Now write down your readings for at least the bad cylinder (if there is a single bad cylinder) and maybe 2-3 good ones. Make a chart like this: CYL STATIC COMPR IDLE -RUNNING COMPR - SNAP Cyl 1 150 75 125 Cyl 2 175 80 130 Cyl 3 160 75 120 Cyl 4 160 80 125
7. ANALYSIS: Running compression at idle should be 50-75 psi (about half cranking compression). Snap throttle compression should be about 80% of cranking compression.
Consult a professional with the readings. If the gasket is to bad, you may have very low compression at lease in one cylinder.
If you will get a positive confirmation for a bad cylinder head then you have two options:
REBUILD THE CYLINDER HEAD or REPLACE IT.

cylinder replacement ????? this could refer to the cylinder liners, but you would only do this for a diesel engine if at all......as long as the cylinder head is serviced (machined and pressure tested), and all top engine seals are replaced with new ones, you should not have any further issues.......make sure a compressioin test both wet and dry are carried out to ensure that the head is the only problem
