When a h/gasket it done it is usually required to come back in after 1000k,s to be retensioned.A modified gasket is mainly fitted IF the head was shaved or reconditioned.Did they say to bring it back in for the head to be retensioned after the initial fitting?If not,it is their fault.It is the same as a new car.It requires the head gasket to be retensioned after 1000k,s.All cars are the same.Hope this helps you

Cylinder head gasket replacement. Do I have to re-seal the cylinder liners and should I then replace the piston rings?


What are you working on? A little more information would go a long way. I'm totally guessing that this is a heavy-duty diesel truck engine since automotive engines don't have removable liners. If all you needed is a head gasket , I wouldn't have pushed the pistons out. As long as that seal between the liners and the block isn't disturbed there's no reason to pull them out. But if you already have gone to the trouble of getting the pistons out, you're half way to an in frame. For me, it has more to do with how many miles ore on it? If you have alot of miles on this rig and you already have it torn down...makes sense to do it all and be done with it. If the miles are low and it was just a leaky gasket...No you don't HAVE to.

I had a new head gasket fitted 2000 miles ago. My mgtf has done 65000 miles. We check water levels all the time. It has not been driven very often. Last summer a hose went and my husband replaced this....


If I were to guess, based on the motor oil condition
I would say you have another coolant issue

Head Gasket,head not crack checked, last time,who knows

To use K Seal is Silly,they know that won't do a thing

Let me explain unlucky
My wife has a 2004 Lincoln LS
People come to this site having spent $2,500.00 at a
dealer, for a misfire condition, & still NO results AT ALL

I do my own work
I buy one new coil online from
Rock Auto for about $59.00 &
her car is fixed,same issues as the
less fortunate, who went to a dealer
many times I may add

How much will a head gasket for a 2000 ford taurus cost


if it is just one and the mechanic is reasonable and there is no other damage ,ie main bearings, valves, cylinders scored, around 800 per head gasket and if one head needs to be shaved you better get the other head shaved and gasket replaced..i had my 2000 taurus done for 1200 couple years ago. it ran for a few years then developed low compression from the coolant leaking into the cylinders..never had luck with mine hope you are having better luck

My 3 year old polo done 24,000 miles been told


hi if it has low compression then this will mean one of three things the first and most likely is that the head gasket has gone this can be replaced but your head will need sending off to be pressure tested and skimmed to make sure it will work when refitted.
the second problem could be a cracked head in this case the head and gasket will need replacing but remember to check the thermostat and water pump as this can cause the head gasket to blow and could be the cause of the problem in the first place so get these parts checked

the third problem could be blown piston rings this is less likely unless the car has been driven with no oil.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

If the head gasket is starting to go, the the water gets vapourized inside the engine. The water level will go down, sometimes you get white smoke from the exhaust, the car consumes more fuel and has less compression and performances.

If you are lucky, and you check the water you can drive a car with bad head gasket for many miles, before it blows completely and leave you on the middle of a motorway.

If the head gasket is starting to go better to fix it or to replace the car.

The part costs only thirty pounds or so here in UK, but the job is expensive, as you need to take apart the head.
Here in UK you dont pay less than four hundreds pounds, probably a bit more, depending on the garage.

Overheating, no coolant loss


I have a 1996 Pontiac Firebird with the 3.8 L V6, and have had problems until I replaced the DexCool (it's never ran so good!) However relating to your problem, there was a class action lawsuit regaurding the 1996 GMC/BUICK/PONTIAC 3.1 L engine, due to DexCool destroying the engine/heads/etc. Follow the link - I do not know all of the details, but it may be worth checking out. 1996 was the first year that DexCool was used at GM.
Hope it helps.
