SOURCE: can i fit a 2 ltr 16v zetec head on a 1.8 16v zetec block

Yes, but you'll lose performance. The 2.0 head has a larger combustion chamber so you're effectively LOWERING the compression. A 1.8 head on a 2.0, that would be beneficial.

Since not specifically mentioned, check to ensure the water pump is functioning properly. Do this before continuing to spend money on replacement parts.

Please provide your model (DX, EX, etc...) and engine size for more specific information.

Water in the oil


Radiator coolant in the engine oil is normally an indication of a failed cylinder head gasket or a crack in the cylinder head or both.

Running the engine in an overheated condition will cause head gasket failure and often a crack in the cylinder head.

The problem you have is coolant is escaping into the engine's lubrication passages via the failed head gasket or head crack and contaminating the engine oil. If not fixed you will cause further damage to the engine as oil contaminated with radiator coolant cannot adequately lubricate the engine.

Running a leak down test on each cylinder will confirm the leak. In this case you are going to need to have the cylinder head removed and thoroughly checked for cracks and any warpage as well as a new cylinder head gasket fitted. The condition the engine block surface will also need to be checked.

I recently changed the head gasket after overheating. The car is not starting and emitting heavy smoke


How hot did the car get before you had to change the head gasket? If the car had extreme heat then it could have damaged the rings. The rings will collapse and allow oil to squeeze past and burn out of the exhaust causing the smoke. Also since the rings are collapsed the vehicle will have no compression hence the no start. First thing is do a compression check.

Had minor MVA radiator lost all fluid... No visual damage to car but engine cranks but wouldn't start instantly.... What could cause this?


If you have an alloy engine head and the engine got real hot then you may have a cracked engine head or a warped engine head. A compression test would need to be carried out by a mechanic to test and confirm if this damage has occurred.

I am not a mechanic but I have experienced having cars with cracked head, blown head gaskets and recently a cracked block in engine or worn rings (had to replaced last car as engine block damage is expensive to fix)!
Technical theory on engines follows !

If coolant is leaking into one or more cylinders of the engine via a blown head gasket or cracked head or warped head then the spark won't fire and the fuel won't ignite in the cylinder until it cranks over to a different cylinder that has no water in it. On the next engine timed cycle the water would have been forced out of the water filled cylinder and into the exhaust pipe and will come out as steam.

Where could I find the coolant drain plug for the engine block on a 2006 Crown Victoria LX vin W. I'm looking for a good place to install a mechanical temperature gauge?


this are is not a good location for a mechanical temp gauge
It is at the bottom of the coolant galley in the block and will be in the sediment that collects in a block
hot water rises and where you want it is where the water will be at the hottest ( bottom of the block is the coolest water) so select a point at the thermostat housing or a plug in the head that goes into the water jacket

Jeep block casting code 53008403


what are you doing> , buying a bare block?

why not say what is in hand. (fit what? just tranny and mounts or what? , be legal or make EFI happy, or ? all other parts on engine?)

i did a www scan and in 1 second, bam the 4 banger

not the 4 liter.



2.5L gas engine not the diesel of same size.

so...

1984 to 2002 run (all year run lenght) not an answer.



http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AMC_straight-4_engine



what does FIT mean.

to the mounts, the transmission, all will

pass smog

be legal, say in CALIF? (strict year codes there.... btw)

make EFI happy (fit)

just the block, short block or just a naked block. you never said./

key fact on bell housing

Instead of the standard AMC bell housing bolt pattern, AMC/Jeep engineers adopted the General Motors small V6 and four-cylinder bolt pattern



short answer, all years fit, the short block.



In 1986 the head went under a minor revision, the head bolts were increased from 7/16 to 1/2 inch.

id bet that be lowest year.



http://www.allpar.com/mopar/amc-25.html



any with 1/2"head bolts





here is a nice page. google hits are free. huh?



http://engineguy.com/jeep-dodge-chrysler/2-5l-1.html?dir=desc&order=name



crank snout?

oil bypass

head bolt sizes

for sure the best answers are at all the top engine builders pages.

never on ebay. avoid them for facts.





you need a 530 block.

shop for that.

Why is there no compression in engine on my 1991 mitsubishi pajerno


This has to be because of a mechanical problem in the engine. Possible sources are the timing belt is broken (one indication is the starter spins the engine faster than normal, because the camshaft that opens and closes valves is not turning with the crankshaft), or the head gasket has failed (from overheating as the most likely cause), or badly worn piston rings and/or valves not sealing well (common on high mileage engines).
Compression is built up in the upper part of the cylinder where combustion occurs, so leaks or lost compression are due to valves not sealing, or head gasket that seals the cylinder head to the engine block-sometimes the aluminum cylinder head can warp due to overheating, and the head gasket no longer can maintain a seal. Or also the piston rings are worn so bad that compression will leak past them into the crankcase. For valves or head gasket, the cylinder head has to be removed and repaired. For the rings, the engine has to be rebuilt entirely.
First check if the timing belt is still intact.

Coolant leak on a 2006 trailblazer from underneath the engine. what could possibly be a cause


There are several areas where the coolant can leak from.
Cylinder heads, intake manifold, frost plugs in the cylinder block, heater or radiator hoses, block heater if so equiped.
The leak may be on top of the engine leaking down and appearing on the bottom of the engine.

Why would there be engin oil in the radiator fluid?


Because your head gasket is shot, and needs to be replaced ASAP before you blow the engine.

If the timing belt breaks does this shear or bend the valves on a 2000 deawoo lanos?


All Daewoo Engines are interference fit Engines. Which means that if the timing belt rips while the engine is running the pistons will hit and bend the valves and you will have to get new valves and possibly a new cylinder head. Worst case scenario you will also have to get a new engine block if for some reason chunks or pieces of valve, piston or cylinder head damaged the cylinder bore and cracked the block while things were moving around. Daewoo Timing belts are recommended to be replaced at 60,000 miles but it is best to replace them before 60k as some people have had their timing belts break on them as soon as 61,000 miles.

Where is the head gaskets


This is not a good question to ask.....I take it that you must not be too mechanically inclined...no offense. is this a v6? A head gasket is between the head(s) and the block. If a head gasket is bad (blown), then it is a very major job to replace. And hoping that your head is not cracked, which is sometimes possible. It is like tearing the engine apart, except for the crank and pistons (bottom engine) head gasket is on the top half of the engine. I would estimate that this job would cost you over $1000. without cost of parts. ???
