SOURCE: 2003 L200 2.2 ecotec w/ crack in head

the crack is possibly in a oil pressure gally and that would by why there is pressure behind it. there is no fix and this engine is not notorious for this problem. if the engine has low miles i would just replace the cyl head.

I have a 2005 Dodge grand caravan several people have said either the head is cracked or I have a blown head gasket what will it take to fix or should I say how much

Cracked heads


They are telling you that the cracked head may have damaged the engine. You can replace engine with a 50K engine from Japan through the internet supplier.

My 2000 Lincoln Continental has a cyclinder 8 misfire with 28% low compression. I was told this means I need a new engine. Is that correct?


depends what is causing it..... the low pressure could be head gasket is cracked damaged by that cylinder... crack in head etc.... more then likely something small not the whole engine.... could be piston, head, head gasket etc.... i wouldnt think it would be the whole engine needs to be replaced... hope this helps cheers

White smokecoming out in the exhaust, wet sparkplug, i already replaced my valve, valveseals, and piston rings but still white smoke is coming out


check water level it may be water vapour from when you replaced the head gasket!
Or its a cracked head! or engine block
you should always have a crack test on heads & chaeck the flatness of thge head & engine block faces
I use a steel ruler & fealer guages to check any gaps

Timing Belt, Radiator, Water pump....


If the timing belt broke on a 1.8 turbo usually the valves in the head strike the pistons. You have to have the head removed to check the pistons. When did the radiator crack? Water pump isn't an expensive part but the rest with work hours and parts will be. Might be able to get a used engine but just make sure that belt and pump are replaced with new along with all the tensionners so the same doesn't happen. Also make sure the oil pressure is good. Sorry for the loss.
