Your shop manual should tell you this. You should have one if you replaced a head gasket to give you all the torque spec's and such.

SOURCE: head gasket 'blown' on 94 Nissan Cefiro, 2.5L, 24

if you get a haynes repair manual and follow it step by step everything should go fine. or clintons. if you have questions about what its telling you to do then that would be a good thing to ask. the problem is there are alot of different designs for engines and it could be affected and it could not be. but if your not sure you definitly need a repair manual. it would tell you everything but it will guide you in the right direction

SOURCE: Determining if head gasket is blown on a 1994 honda accord Ex w VTec

White smoke out of the exhaust is one indication that the head gasket is blown. Another is to start the car and check the oil on the dipstick. If it's frothy or looks like a milkshake, this is another indication of a blown head gasket. The milky appearance indicates that coolant is in your engine, caused by a bad head gasket. If none of these symptoms occur, then the problem lies elsewhere. Hope this answers your question and feel free to post back with any other concerns or questions. Thank you.

SOURCE: Head gasket blown. What is approximate cost to

  1. Many internal engine problems, such as a blown head gasket, cracked head or cracked piston, can be repaired without having to replace an entire engine.
  2. Potential
  3. While taking the time to replace an engine may seem labor-intensive and costly, it will add years to a vehicle's life and will save a car owner from the cost of having to buy a new car.
  4. Benefits
  5. Taking a car to a mechanic and replacing an engine with a used engine can cost between $1,000 to $2,000 for parts and labor.
  6. Solution
  7. Car owners interested in replacing their engines with new ones can expect to pay anywhere between $2,000 to $4,000.
  8. Speculation
  9. For those interested in doing the engine replacement themselves, purchasing specialized tools needed for the job is a cost to consider in addition to the price of a replacement engine.

Oil is in the resovior now it link out of the resovior

If I'm understanding you correctly, you're saying there is oil in your reservoir? Could be the head gasket starting to go bad. If you're saying it's leaking out of the reservoir, then you have a crack somewhere in the reservoir or the rubber line that connects to it.

Antifreeze leaking from engine on 2001 ford focus

It sounds like you have a blown head gasket, check your engine oil, take off your oil cap and if it is frothy around the cap and inside the head, you have a blown head gasket.

Ford focus tdci white smoke problems

What happening is you have a bad head gasket or its starting to go bad. As long a little oil is getting in to cylinders causing that smoke once it warms up that gasket is expanding thus the smoke stops. I would keep an eye on oil levels if it gets milky replace gasket asap. Could also be intake gasket but highly doubt it this sounds like a worn head gasket.

My ford fiesta finesse 1.3 enduoro 2000 over heats aster about 15 20 mins of running it its not the fan we have checked this also no a thermer stat and no air lock anyone have any idea

try driving it with the heater of full heat and see what happens ,also check to see if engine is pressurising on the rad cap ,start engine with the rad cap off and see if it starts to bubble and the level rise ,if so its a head gasket as most engines when they get to a certain mileage the head gasket will deteriorate ,this engine has a cast iron head so it shouldnt be corroded or warped in any way but the gaskets to rot away regardless .Now if its not building up pressure and the engine doesnt overheat with the heater on full heat and full air blow then renew the radiator

Blown head gasket

Depending on the size of the leak theragasket may work. There are other products that add to the anti-freeze, if it's anti-freeze that is leaking. Some add to the oil. For a temp fix I would and have been able to prolong a head gasket replacement. But it's just a temporary fix. Could last 1 week, 6 months or not at all.
A head gasket replacement is not a easy job, messy if you do it and a little costly if a shop does it. I've been there, Good luck
If you like this advise, please do the rating - Thanks
