My 97 2.8l diesel hiace is pressurising the cooling system it has a crack in the radiator could this be causing the problem or is it more likley a head gasket


head gasket but the 2.8 l diesel has a head cracking problem especially if the engine is held at high rpm for long periods of time
have a compression test done and it it shows gasket , then while the head is off , have the head crack tested

3.1l diesel. What is the correct head gasket?


no year? Jeep? one post, and no year.
is this WG jeep say in europe. ? we dont have WG here.
WG started in Europe in 1999.
on this usa forum or in our country no 3.1 VM diesels
i do have your FSM book.
and here is what it states. (different liners used etc)
"CYLINDER HEAD GASKETS
A one piece steel cylinder head gasket is used for
all five cylinder heads.
Cylinder head gaskets are available in three thicknesses.
Identification holes or notches in the right
front corner of the gasket indicate the thickness of
the gasket (Fig. 65).
CAUTION: Piston protrusion must be measured, to
determine cylinder head gasket thickness, if one or
more cylinder wall liners have been replaced.
NOTE: If cylinder wall liners have not been
removed; the same thickness head gasket removed,
may be used.
MEASURING PISTON PROTRUSION
(1) Use special tool VM.1010 with dial indicator
special tool VM.1013 (Fig. 66).
(2) Bring the piston of cylinder no. 1 exactly to top
dead center.
(3) Zero the dial indicator on the cylinder block
mating surface.
(4) Setup the dial indicator on the piston crown
(above the center of the piston pin) 5mm (1/8 in.)
from the edge of the piston and note the measurement
(Fig. 67).
(5) Repeat the procedure with the rest of the cylinders.
(6) Establish the thickness of the steel gasket for
all four cylinder heads on the basis of the greatest
piston protrusion (Fig. 65)
buy the book,end all guessing?

How to remove cyl heads


Buy a chiltons manual that's specific the the cyl heads your trying to remove. I'm guessing your talking about heads on a car ? By not including a make, model, year , engine size , diesel or gas, overhead cam, naturally aspirated, turbo, fuel injected, carbureted there is no way to answer the question you are asking. Your biggest concern should be on how to reinstall them. Reinstalling heads are far more complex than removing them. All heads are different in the pattern in which they are tightened down ( to prevent warping ) . A specific amount of torque must be applied to each bolt. Some bolts require thread sealant because they pass through the water/coolant passages in the engine. Failure to do that will result in water leaking into you combustion chamber thus ruining your engine as well as your new head. Also the thickness of the head gasket must be correct because to thin or to thick of a gasket will change your engines compression ratio . The gasket thickness can also change your cc's in the combustion chamber. A gasket that's to thin can also allow the exhaust or intake valve to hit the top of the piston on the compression stroke. If your dealing with an overhead cam or dual overhead cam engine then the proper setting of the camshafts when reinstalling the head or heads is crucial . The above only pertained to gas engines. If you have a Diesel engine then things change dramatically . The pressures in the cylinder head combustion chamber area on a Diesel engine is unbelievable . One small mistake or oversight on reinstalling a head on a Diesel engine can be catastrophic .

I got white smoke, changed head and head gasket, intake gasket looked bad. My question is: can a bad intake gasket cause the white smoke?


Not on a Gas engine, but diesel engine yes.

Diesel engine white smoke means leaking head, intake, or your turbo is not working.

Gas engine leaking intake would only cause rough idle, no power, etc,,,,

The radiator of my 2003 isuzu trooper has a mixture of water and diesel now, and per mechanic, we have to replace the overhaul gasket kit and cylinder head (though without testing), can we just proceed...


how did the diesel get in there? are you sure its diesel fuel or is it motor oil? then it could be head gasket problem. Or trans fluid, which would make it milky pink? Then it could be the trans cooler in the radiator leaking. If someone accidently put diesel fuel in it then just flush it out. If it has been in there long enough to start ruining hoses then replace those. why does he say gaskets? how does it run? does it overheat? then maybee head gaskets. and resurface heads.
