Hello Torrey,

Your two problems are not related. Not firing has nothing to do with replacing a head gasket, but to do with the ignition system. You must have unplugged or disconnected something in your ignition system in the process of changing your head gasket ?? Look for that.... Hope this helps.

My truck got hot yesterday cause of a blown heater hose and it won,t start today , i,ve got fire and i can smell fuel , but it won,t start


The first question I would ask, Is it turning over? If not, pull the plugs, and see if there is water in the cylinders. Water won't compress. Second question, if it is turning over, pull a couple of plugs and see if you find any water. Because you may have blown a head gasket. If you have, make sure you send the head to get it checked for cracks before reassembly. Good luck!! DD

I over heated,the serpentine belt snapped. Opened the hood to find steam rapidly coming out of both the antifreeze and out of the engine right by the head gasket. It wasn't smoke not blue or black jus


Perform a compression test on your cylinders. One unfortunate result of overheating is the blown head gasket. Without compression your motor will not run. Tester are not super expensive or some stores will lend tools.

5.3 liter Chevy engine #1 Cylinder not firing at idle


My opinion...

Year? Miles?

There's no way I'd dive into a "HEAD GASKET"
diagnosis without pressure testing the cooling
system and (wet/dry) COMPRESSION testing
the whole engine...

Even if it is a "HEAD GASKET"... the entire engine
might be ready for a REFRESH... and tossing a new
Head gasket into a TIRED ENGINE not insubstantial
(a lot of wasted time & money)...

Come back with some compression numbers...

but don't bother with any of this if your engine oil has water in it.

(in my opinion)

My car start smoking very heavy white smoke an stop running


You've blown a head gasket. the white smoke is from the coolant getting into the
cylinders thru the faulty head gasket. The fact that it won't run tells you that so much
coolant is getting into the cylinder(s) that the engine can't function properly.
Fix: buy a new head gasket, take the head off the engine, and replace the gasket.

95 camry won`t start


Have the head gasket torqued to 60psi each bolt? if so, either the spark plug grooves got a crack, or the head is bent due to a past overheat... or overheats. If so, send the head to a machine shop and have it leveled out, and replace all gaskets replaced when putting back on. That includes, manifold, header, and head gaskets, as well as the oil seals and O-rings. Hope this will help you.
