SOURCE: wont start

most vacuum leaks are in hoses that are disconnected or have holes in them you can also take a bottle of water and spray it along the side of the intake and base of the carborater if the motor bogs or you here it **** the water in you have found you leak but it can be a leak under the intake and that is a bigger problem to find

SOURCE: blown head gasket how much to repair?

You may be better replacing the whole engine with a rebuilt. It's going to cost close to $1000.00 to repair and you can buy a rebuilt for just $1700.00 and you know the engine is fresh. With a blown head gasket you have the fear of antifreeze contamination in your engine oil. The antifreeze is corrosive to the crankshaft bearings and you may be looking at bearing replacement also. If the body is good, you can always try to find another 1997 cavalier with less miles and swap out the engine. Seen most cavalier around that year for sale starting at $500.00 and another $300.00 for labor to do the swap. Good luck and sorry about the bad news. Keep me posted, be glad to help.

Engine problem

Probably a head gasket problem,once again. It's burning the coolant off the plug . To make sure ,use a "block tester" from NAPA ,it is a liquid that changes color with the presence of exhaust gas in the coolant.

1998 Chev 1500. 305 T.B.injection. Engine runs a little ruff when first started hot or cold but smooths out perfect after about 10 min of running. Check engine light on.

If you haven't already changed plugs and wires, do that first, but i suspect you have an intake gasket or a head gasket leaking. It runs rough when you start it because of coolant in the cylinder. After it clears out and dries, it will run fine. That would especially be the case if you have to add coolant occasionally.

Ford focus 1.6 zitec petrol, engine warning light flashing, engine chugging, very high fuel consumption, fumes smell when stationary, exhaust seems ok, recently change speed sensor and coil pack?

try the air filter first and the intake.the spark plugs then and after all go to a garage for checking compression timing and the head gasket.

White smoke coming out tailpipe

If your intake gaskets are leaking, when you dump soapy water on the gasket, it should bubble like crazy ( when it's running). If you can, run it with the rad cap off and watch for bubbles. If it keeps bubbling, you probably have a head gasket problem.

Coolant leaking from rear of engine where the passenger side head and intake meet the block.The engine seems to run fine. is there anything under the intake that could be damaged or do you think its a head...

That would be a head gasket leak. The motor will run fine there min. change white smoke from exhaust but min. On newer cars the check engine light will engage

The problem is that your oil and anti freeze are mixing not a good thing. Good luck .
