It is a fairly involved job. You will need to remove the intake & exhaust manifold. The head then must be removed and cleaned. Take the head to a machine shop and have it inspected for warpage. Unless you are really handy I suggest you have this done by a pro. A Chilton's or Hayne's Repair Manual for your Suzuki will be of immense help if you decide to tackle it.

Pcv valve I changed the head gasket in my 2002 Nissan Altima 2.5s and did a oil change and I had the oil filler cap off when I started it and it oil came out the filler


Oil supply to the overhead camshaft and valve gear is fairly vigorous and so some spray from there is to be expected without the filler cap.

Unlikely a problem with the pcv valve - they rarely give trouble unless seriously gummed up with carbon-type deposits and then a thorough clean mostly restores them.

There is coolant in the oil was hoping to find out all posibilities and trouble shooting procedures.


4 cylinder would be the head gasket is blown. 6 cylinder could be the head gasket or intake manifold gasket. The only other way is a cracked head or block. These don't happen to often. If it is the head gasket, send the heads to e checked for cracks and to be surfaced flat.

What all do I need to change or do to fix a blown head gasket?


This is a big job. First removing the upper intake and possible the airbox. then the fuel rail and injector connectors needs to be removed or disconnected then remove the lower intake. Possible having to remove the valve covers first.exhaust manifold(s) will have to be removed. Then you can remove the heads. There will be many electrical connectors that will have to be disconnected. Inspect the heads for cracks around the valves is where they usually crack. Inspect all valves for damage or uneven wear. ALWAYS follow torque specs and sequence when installing the heads. A manual will be verys helpful with this job. The alternator,P/S pump may also have to be removed or moved out of the way. Cleaning is very important. Generaly the parts you will need are.

Upper and lower intake gaskets
Head gasket
Head bolts
Valve cover gaskets
Injector O-rings
Exhaust manifold gaskets

Hopefully this kinda helps.

My engine management light stays on after resetting clylinder gasket chech ok


Having it checked only satisfies you - not the sensors that indicate a problem.
Resetting the fault code does not change the sensor.
I have never heard of a Diagnostic trouble code (DTC) that indicated you have a cylinder head gasket problem!

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

The single and double overhead cam engines take different sensors - it should be under a wiring harness close to the throttle cable.
Did you check the computer for trouble codes ?

Water in oil


Water in the engine oil can be a sign of a leaky head gasket, between oil and water passages. There was a run of Subaru models which did have trouble with head gasket leaks, due to bad parts supply. It can also be the eventual outcome of the coolant not being changed.
It might also be associated with overheating, a sign of more extensive head gasket troubles.

There is a test, a radiator leak-down test, which can show if the water jacket is not holding pressure, due to a leak somewhere. A compression test will show if the actual cylinder pressure is leaking too.
Bear in mind the Subies have 2 head gaskets, 1 each side. Unfortunately many mechanics will want to pull the engine out for this job. It is not absolutely necessary, but easier that way.
If you have resources to try the job yourself, here is a link

As it says there, insist that cheap aftermarket gaskets not be used.

1996 Chevy Cavalier blown head gasket


Pull the spark plugs out and see if they have a brown tint to them and smell funny. You can tell a lot by the spark plugs. That could tell you if you're getting anti freeze in your cylinders. These engines are bad about head gaskets and cracked heads. To replace the head gasket you're probably looking at about 480.00 labor and about 200.00 in parts and machine work, unless the head is cracked, then you're looking at more money.
