If you are scraping vehicle just remove the fuel supply hose/pipe and move it to were you can feed it into fuel can. Then find the fuel pump wires and connect a 12 volt battery to them.

The gauge on my suv marks it was overheating , we measured coolant and measures 240. mecanic replaced headgasket and suv had same symptoms, until the coolant temperature sensor was replaced.


Water boils at 220 degrees. Liquid cooled engines keep the the temp between 175-195degrees. Need to avoid boil over. 240 is boil over. Blown head gasket are very frequent since ethanol added to gasoline. Why? Fuel absorb water now because of ethanol especially if it sit longer than a week or two in your gas tank. The result...blown head gasket from engine fighting against contaminants burning in the cylinder. Prevention: drive more & use a marine grade stabilizer such as Sea-Foam at every fill up. Now you know.

sounds like the head-gasket blew, and the fuel pump may have gone out. I would really have to be there to know for sure. I guess you need to see if you have spark, and if fuel is coming to the engine, may have had a fuse or two go out, also. Good Luck Tim

My bongo is overheating , I did a 350 mile run with no probs then the week after it blew all the water out of the header tank , cant find anything wrong , was thinking of changing the thermostat and...


Overheating and water blowing out of the header tank? Then you probably have a blown head gasket.

There is no cheap, quick or easy fix for this, but there is a quick cheap and easy way to rule it out as being the cause: get the vehicle to a decent repair garage and ask for a sniff test on the coolant. This involves taking a small sample of coolant and shaking it in a tube of indicator solution which changes colour if it detects exhaust residues which are only present in coolant if the head gasket has blown. If the gasket has not blown then you can start considering other (cheaper) causes such as a faulty pressure cap on the expansion tank.

Head gasket failures are always expensive to repair (despite the gasket itself being relatively cheap) and usually involve other repair work as well. The only certainty is that the sooner it's attended to, the lower the final cost. Given that your Bongo is now 14 years old, you might even find that it's cheaper and quicker to break yours for spares and to buy another vehicle. Head gasket failures are one of the most common causes for scrapping older vehicles and as some owners disguise the earliest symptoms of the fault in order to sell their vehicle on it's always getting a sniff test done on any used car purchase which is not covered by any sales guarantees.

Sorry that I cannot offer a quick fix this time, but the information which I've provided should enable you to avoid further unnecessary expense and assist you to decide what to do next.

Where Does The Overflow Tank Hose Connect


to weaker mixture will cause vehicle to overheat ,but i think that the radiator cap rubber has perished causing the coolant to throw out or the head gasket ,get the cooling system pressure tested ,and then run engine with gauge attached to check for excessive pressure build up ,(head gasket test) ,another trick is to fit a bottle to end of the overflow pipe so what goes out gets sucked back in when engine cools .Check the rubber seal in teh rad cap and check the seating that it pushes and closes onto.As for the sliding doors use your judgement and you will not go far wrong

Equal amounts of water present in all 4 cylinders when looking through spark plug holes. what could have caused this?


You have either a blown head gasket, a cracked block or a cracked head. The head has to be removed to fix the cheapest problem, the head gasket so, make sure the block & head get checked too.

Changed spark plugs in 97 buick lasabre and now it cranks and runs, but white smoke coming out. Is that blown head gaskets? Does it have anything to do with the fuel pump my mechanic put on 3 weeks ago???


You need to check the oil with the dipstick (wipe in down a few times) to see if it looks like a chockalate milk shake. If coolent has made its way into the oil you have blown head gasket. The fuel pump which is usually in the gas tank in most gm vehicles would not cause white smoke, if it failed you car would not start because your engine would not get any gas to the injectors

I got 2001 bmw 330i series, had a leak at radiator, replace radiator, reservior and thermostat, is overheating after repairs, i thing there is an air pocket, found bleeding screw at reservior, but did not...


if you replaced the thermostat thats actually connected to the engine and not the thermostat thats underneath the expansion tank/reservoir, I would recommend filling the expansion tank to the top remove bleeder screw and allow the vehicle to sit keeping coolant filled to the top of reservoir, once you feel there is no more air in system reinstall bleeder screw and correct fluid level in expansion tank. There are a couple different tools that are used to properly bleed the system. one tool you can pull a vacuum on the system and when the vacuum is released coolant is pulled back into system. At the same time you could have a blown head gasket. There is also a tool out there to check for combustion gases in your cooling system which would be a signs of a blown head gasket. Another recommendation is to pick up a cooling system pressure tester (can be picked up as a loan a tool @ autozone) usually pressurizing the system will help to remove air pockets

Water shoots out of expansion tank and overheats, electric fan no


If your oil is milky it is a blown head gasket or worse a warped head.

1991 aerostar with blown head gasket, how do I drain the fuel tank


If you're going to junk it, just "ice pick" the gas tank and have plenty of proper containers to put the gasoline in. I saw that happen when I was in a scrap yard getting parts. The ppl who run the place just poked a hole in the tank and let it empty into a barrel.
