O.K., first of all, These do not have a head gasket. It is called an exhaust manifold gasket. You should have also changed your spark plugs & thermostat when you did this. I would try replacing my starter first.

Check that the timing is spot on, that all wires, plugs, and vacuum lines are connected. That there are no fuel leaks. after doing this. if nothing is found then try to see if the fault is fuel or spark.

Grand prix has a 3.1 6cyl. and 166000 mile, it blow white smoke


Sorry to inform you of the bad news but the white smoke is engine coolant burning off and the rough running condition is also associated with coolant leaking into the combustion chambers.This will be a head gasket repair, basically a head job where you will need to machine the heads down and install new gaskets from the heads up.Get back to me if you have any more questions, thanks and I hope I could help!!!

I have a 98 grand am blew a head gasket, ive had the heads reworked and new gaskets now the car doesn't start, just turns over. what could be the problem?


Check if you have spark at the spark plug. Go buy yourself one plug. Take any plug wire off plug in engine. Attach plug wire to new plug and touch a ground on engine with new plug threaded side. Have someone start engine and watch for spark. If spark exsist, look for fuel problem.

I have a pontiac and i keep blowing head gasket on number one cylinder. I have installed new heads and gasket lasted about five years. I was wondering what the correct head bolt torque is for a 1995...


cylinder head bolts, step one;33 ft. lbs, second step rotate an additional 90-degrees (1/4 turn). do not put any oil or sealant on gasket. the gasket should seal itself if torqued properly.

The head gasket is leeking in my car.


You need to remove the head(s) and have the head(s) checked for cracks and straightness, then install the head(s) with new head gaskets. Most head gasket manufactured are assembled dry, no sealants.

Whats the common problems on a 2.4l grand am engine. Its a 96


head gasket failure. its about $2000.00 to replace the head gasket. the head usually worps, so you'll need a new head. if that happens just replace the engine becuase your putting a new head on an old block.

1996 Pontiac Grand Am Coolant in Oil


Hi Linda.

You have a major problem, first, don't run the engine at all! when there is coolant in the oil, running the engine can ruin it completely. the coolant will cause bearings in the bottom of the motor to seize, if not more cause more damage.

these engines are known for blowing head gaskets and intake gaskets. in this case, if you haven't ran the motor since finding the problem, the head gaskets can be replaced and the engine should be fine. I'd recommend doing the heads even if it's only the intake leaking. that would be cheaper than having to go back in later, and there isn't much further to the head gaskets after the intake is off.
also, have a new thermostat put in while this is all being done, it's cheap insurance!

If you know someone that has done head gaskets before, they should be able to tackle this without too much problem, otherwise if you'd rather a shop do the job, just make sure to tow or haul the car to the shop.
