Question about Cars & Trucks
Put new governer gears in motor and new head gaskets as the heads were leaking.but did,nt change any thing else
Take the rod from the governor lever to carby off and see if you can move the governor lever freely or if it lees like it is not in the governor weights and cog groove
is the governor lever moving against the spring outside the crankcase
I suspect that you may not have put the lever end in the gear slot properly when reassembling the motor and the lever is not shutting the throttle plate as it should to stop over rpms
hopefully you did it right and it is the location on the lever on the shaft outside that requires repositioning

Testimonial: "thx Bill the gov rod moved and it help. I still got to use the throttle arm to keep it not over reving and to not stall. but I can work with that if you can"t help with that. thanks again Ed"
Did you check the steering pump, AC compression pump, etc or other engine components ? it could be something other than the engine.

SOURCE: 1999 olds alero leaking coolant
problem could be heads bolts . i put new bolts in put a little sealer on them . make sure your bolt holes is clean free from debris. put a lillte sealer on intake gasket on top and bottom where coolants travel. if all was done . drain engine oil in clean container .set it aside. take radiator cap off .you a coolant pressure rise kit .put a pan under oil pan with drain plug still off .pressure your radiator about 10 psi. make sure you have antifreeze in radiator and engine . when you pressure up to 10 psi look under the car if coolant comes out oil pan. you got leaking head gasket. if not .put oil pan plug back on . put oil back in car . check your freeze plugs also.

the valve cover, requiring the removal of 4 to eight bolts, easy enough for the novice to remove and replace.
is the uppermost piece of the engine under all the hose's and wire's that run a muck. the head gasket on the other hand requires the removal of all that can be seen as you peer under the hood.if it is just an oil leak it should not require a head gasket .
my suggestion would be to use an engine degreaser
such as gunk or Castor oil brand follow there instructions.and then drive the vehicle 20 minutes or so and look for fresh oil to determine exactly where the leak is coming from

if car has a oil cooler that uses coolant to lower oil temp. check that, if not you might want to get a coolant psi tester and try locating leak that way. but my expierence is that a head gasket problems cause this also if block was bored and machined that could also be the issue.

Testimonial: "good advice, pulled the head off and found that the gasket had ruptured towards the back"
Well the head gasket job will cover the valve cover gasket ( you have to do one to get to the other) Bring it to a repair shop its about a $1500 job.
