My kia 2.5 v6 keep on mixing the oil with water replaced the top gaskets three times already

If you do not mill the heads when you replace the gaskets, you will continue to have trouble. Also, you must torque the head bolts the exact amount.

My 2007 lincoln mkx over heated yesterday so we shut it off right away. Found water/coolant in the crank case. Wondering what a common problem in these cars is that would cause this?

It could be from a head gasket problem so have a compression test done
most times if there is no evidence of a gasket failure , the reason can be found to be corrosion holes behind the water pump impeller in the timing chain housing
these holes allow water into the sump by way of the timing chain
if that is the case the fix is a new timing chain case

What would make a 1995 ford ranger not idle after replacing head gasket

Best have it checked by a garage. You replaced head gasket was the timing put back absolutely correctly?
Have you checked the engine compression?
Did you check the head for warping / air tightness?
Were all the ancilaies replaced correctly?
There could be anything causing the problem

Crack headgasket pontiac montana 2002

have a compression test done to confirm that it is a gasket and not a cracked head . If so remove the head/s and replace the gaskets . A good job will require the cleaning of the stud holes with a thread tap and the studs cleaned with a thread chaser/ die nut. Ensure that the head and block faces are clean dry and flat (Warped head may be the original cause of gasket failure) to ensure that the head gasket film is allowed to adhere to the surfaces and assist with the sealing process. Use locktite never seize to obtain maximum tension on the bolts as it stops the threads binding under tension.

How do i replace a blown headgasket

To replace a blown head gasket requires a lot of labor on this vehicle. Its a v6, meaning you have 2 head gaskets to replace instead of just 1. It requires removing air cleaner, disconnecting battery, removing most of the accessories that are belt driven, removing the intake manifold, egr valve and tubing, exhaust manifold on both sides of engine, timing belt removal, valve covers, and a few smaller items. After removing everything on top of the engine, you'll have access to the cylinder head bolts. Removing them will allow you to lift off the cylinder heads. Before replacing the gaskets, you must send them to a machine shop to have the gasket surface milled true flat again. They must also be inspected for cracks (which will sometimes happen with blown head gaskets) which would render them useless.
If this is a vehicle you really like, perhaps consider investing in a quality used motor. Its less labor intensive, less repeat repair, and you may come out saving a few bucks.

Respected Sir / Miss My Honda Accord 95 EX 4 door Air conditioner Compressor is leaking from a joint . Can it fixed by changing New gasket & sleeve OR do I have to Change it. Can it be done @ home...

I guess you mean a joint on the compressor body. These can be difficult to fix as they are often caused by corrosion. The metal oxide, as it forms, expands and causes leaks by pushing the mating surfaces apart. The only way to fix is to strip the compressor down to component parts and clean with a wire brush or steel wool all oxide areas back to metal. Using new gaskets it can then be rebuilt. This is a lot of work and I would first look for a clean replacement example in a local breakers yard. Simply swapping over will be much less costly in terms of time and more likely to work reliably. Check the compressor first before taking a) the belt pulley should spin freely without a sound b) apply a voltage from a car battery and the pulley should become stiff as the compressor clutch engages with a click. Once you have changed the compressor you will need to have the AC system recharged with gas. Trust this to a specialist garage as they will have the tools to do this properly.

Timing belt skipped as a result the crankshafts are all bent. Do you need to plane the head gasket?

I think what you mean, is the cylinder head in-take or exhaust valve's are bent, yes, you need to have the cylinder head mill, after the bent valve's are replace, and a new head gasket installed.Hope this was very helpful.

If the head has a slight leak which is getting into the motor, should I take out the motor or replace the head gasket?

If your head has a slight leak you're probably burning coolant and/or oil. With coolant burning the exhaust is a visible white color and smells 'sweet' too. Exhaust when oil is burning sometimes looks bluish. Smells like burning oil too.

Take out the motor? You mean fully replace the whole thing? No.

Why is the head gasket leaking? Did it overheat at some point? If so, then your problem is bigger than just a bad gasket. Milling (flattening) of the head is required and there might be other issues caused by the exhaust (oxygen sensors now might be fouled). Costs for milling and replacement might run around $1500, but this is just a guesstimate.

Good luck!

1996 ford explorer needs new head gaskets

I would put the money into the vehicle. Do you really want to go thousands into debt to purchase another vehicle? Cheaper to fix than replace. If the vehicle is in good shape all around I would repair it. If you are going to do the work yourself it will cost lots less than the 2000. If you do the work have the heads milled and replace the stem seals and knurl the valve guides at the same time. Also check for weak or broken valve springs. Your local machine shop should do all this anyway. Good luck.
