Question about Cars & Trucks
Posted by Anonymous on
Take it to another mechanic. He's full of it. If your heater doesn't work the problem isn't with a head gasket. The thermostat on the engine could be stuck open or the heater core may have a restriction in it. If your head gasket was blown, your engine would be overheating and coolant would be dripping out the exhaust pipe along with a white steam cloud that smells like antifreeze

sorry i still think its a gasket problem,or water ports---but without bringing it to yard for me to have a look its a bit difficult and iam in spain.These *** motors use a smaller rad cap with two seals in ,so it can draw the coolant back in on cooling,but iam of the opinion that its drawing in a slight water ingression causing the idle problem.Go on give it a birthday and pull the head off and check its level and not warped ,also the water ports are not dissolved to any extent.

sealers usually end up costing you more in the long term than the short term. these sealers react to heat and air. so you end up doing nothing more than plugging up you radiator, water passage ports, water pumps get damaged. causing more over heating problems than they solve. no i would go for what the shop gave you as a quote. that seems a pretty reasonable quote for the position you are in.

Could be a Bad radiator Cap? Low Water? Clogged radiator? Not enough air flow, Do To.... Dirty radiator fins? Bad Fan Clutch or Electric fan not running? Timing Off? Stuck closed Thermostat? Bad Water Pump? Blown head Gasket(s)? Cracked Cylinder Head(s), ECT....
