SOURCE: head gasket blown

there are many was a head gasket can blow . sometimes they just leak to the outside sometimes they leak to the coolant and then it blows out your antifreeze. if you have a blown head gasket you will see it when you pull the head. and yes you should hace the head checked at a machine shop and install with a new head set never reuse a gasket .

SOURCE: 2003 saab 9-5 replaced head gasket because of overheat

disconnect computer and drive it ,if it drives ok then nothing wrong with it,after test drive put your hand held plug in gizmo under wheels and drive over it for what use it is.Skimmed head and new head bolts ?you must have more money than sense didnt you check it with a straight edge first??then clean it with a flat bed sander.head bolts ?? more expense .only expense should have been head gasket and antifreeze with a tube of instant gasket.Have you put all the little vac pipes back on that open the flaps on the air con and left the one off on the valve between the inlet and exhaust manifolds.Also did you remove and grind in the valves ??

As a A S E Certified Tech I Do NOT RECOMEND ANY "QUICK FIX" ADDITIVES Especialy for such a Critical Engine Component

More Costly but Also More effective is to Tear down Engine and Replace Head Gasket as You may have A Cracked Head Or Block That NO ADDITIVE will TRUELY REPAIR PROPERLY

SOURCE: blown head gasket

I would change both, as well as use new head bolts. Make sure your heads are not warped or cracked, especially the one that is leaking. There may not be any need to change the head if it is not cracked. These are prone to blowing a gasket especially after 150K miles or so. It will not cost a huge additional amount to change both head gaskets since the engine will have to be disassembled down to the heads anyway. Hope this helps you, Rick

Can i remove one cylinder head and replace gasket?without doing both?and what is the torque sequence? This is on a pontiac 1976 400 ..grand prix


Yes, you can just do one head gasket, although I wouldn't recommend it.
If the head gasket has failed, it's usually because the engine has overheated. If you know that the engine has overheated, it would be best to do both heads.
When an engine overheats, the head warps a little. It doesn't take much to change the internal pressures on the gasket, and when the gasket area between the cylinders starts to lighten up a little, the gasket fails.
To do the job properly, take the head(s) to a qualified automotive machine shop and have the head resurfaced. Even a slightly warped head will be unable to keep a head gasket.
After a head has been resurfaced, it's relatively easy to put it back together.
NOTE!!
The machine shop will tell you the proper torque and torque sequence. Usually start from the center and work your way out evenly, going from side to side, and top to bottom, but get specific information for YOUR engine from the machine shop.
NEVER replace a head gasket without having the head resurfaced.

Do you put silicone on head gaskets when repairing heads


no always put head gaskets on dry, replace the head bolts, and make sure their is no coolant down the head bolt holes or they won't torque properly

Coolant is leaking like a sive fromt he head gasket, how hard is this to fix?


If you have no damage to the heads, like warping, it is not to hard. Requires removing the heads putting a new gasket on and put the heads back on. Make sure you torque the bolts to the right torque according to the factory specs. Do not reuse the head bolts. Wouldn't hurt to take the heads to a machine shop and having them cleaned and rebuilt.

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.

Head gasket has gone on 1 van. i have another van. how do i go about getting good head gasket from 1 van to the other


You don't, not the head gasket anyway. You should always replace the gasket with a new one. You can use a cylinder head off one vehicle for another as long as it's the same engine. But have the head checked by a automotive machine shop prior to installation so it can be checked for cracks and warpage.

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.
