It will not start or it will not even crank? There are a lot of things that would cause it not to start. For example the valve timing could be way off because you did not reinstall the timing belt/chain properly. If it does not even try to crank that's another story entirely but still quite a few possible causes. Anyway, I assume that you disconnected the battery before you started the work and therefore did not accidentally short something out while trying to remove the head. Also, it's very easy to forget to connect some wire or small hose after such a job. For example the ground wire that often runs from the frame to the cylinder head. Just make sure you reconnected everything properly. And if you did the work with the battery hooked up make sure you did not short something out.

SOURCE: blew head gasket and would not start, changed gasket and still wont start

Make the timing belt is installed properly, otherwise all the intake valves will be bent because it is a high interference combustion chamber. Check compression after properly timed. If you are off any teeth at all the head will need to come back off to get repaired.

I recently changed the head gasket after overheating. The car is not starting and emitting heavy smoke

How hot did the car get before you had to change the head gasket? If the car had extreme heat then it could have damaged the rings. The rings will collapse and allow oil to squeeze past and burn out of the exhaust causing the smoke. Also since the rings are collapsed the vehicle will have no compression hence the no start. First thing is do a compression check.

My Mitsubishi lancer 4g15 dohc gdi starts perfectly but sometimes doesn't start at all,I hav now parked it until its fixed,my mechanic suspects the head gasket but I doubt. Wat could be th problem ?

Probably not the head gasket as that problem would be constant.
When it does not want to start, you'll need to figure out if it is a fuel or spark problem to know which system to inspect.

How do i change 1999 mitsubishi eclipse head gasket

Hi there, I'm Al the owner of Big As Auto Repair

If you've never changed a head gasket before and you do it wrong it can be very costly to you. Because if you fail to set up the timing correctly you can bend every valve in the head costing you big time money. BUT, if you are still wanting to do it yourself go to my website, click on "Contact Us" and give me all the information about you car. "Engine size, Make, Model, Year and VIN number and your name. I'll help you step by step, BUT, understand I will not be responsible if you miss a step and bend the valves, but if you listen carefully and follow instructions we should be able to get you through. It's up to you, my website is below. Have an awesome day! Auto Repair

Pajero overheating

It sounds like you had a blown head gasket and it was leaking into the oil or into the exhaust and being burned. if you look at the oil on the dip stick it may look milky. if the head gasket starts leaking internally then it can / will cause overheating

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
