If the gasket is blown there is no fix other than to replace the gasket. No temporary fixes will work.

1999 Ford Taurus keeps running hot


Does it get hot mainly when parked or stopped at a red light or does it get hot even when the car is in motion?If its only when your stopped,the cooling fans are probably not working due to a blown fuse,relay or bad fan motor.If the coolant inside the reservoir seems to boil once the engine gets hot,that can be caused by a defective radiator cap.A blown head gasket will also cause overheating.If you let the engine idle for a few minutes,shut it off,pull all of the spark plugs,see if any plug or two adjacent plugs are wet with coolant, that's a sign of a blown head gasket.If you constantly need to refill the radiator with coolant, that's another sign.

Cost blown head gasket so i took my 2003 saturn l300 to the mechanic because the car wasn't getting any heat he had it for over a week & he finally told me that the head gasket may be blown & thet...


Take it to another mechanic. He's full of it. If your heater doesn't work the problem isn't with a head gasket. The thermostat on the engine could be stuck open or the heater core may have a restriction in it. If your head gasket was blown, your engine would be overheating and coolant would be dripping out the exhaust pipe along with a white steam cloud that smells like antifreeze

I HAVE 2004 MONTE CARLO. THE HOT COOLANT TEMP LIGHT HAS COME A FEW TIMES. THE HEATER ONLY BLOWS COLD AIR FOR A BIT AND THEN EVENTUALLY HEATS UP. THE CAR NEVER SEEMS TO RUN HOT THOUGH. I HAVE BEEN TOLD...


A blown head gasket is usually easy to confirm. The head gasket prevents the engine coolant and oil from mixing under the head. If you have a blown head gasket, you should be able to see bubbles of water/cooland on the dip stick when you check your oil.

I do agree that with your heater taking a while to get warm, it probably has some build-up in the system that needs to be flushed out, before it causes other issues.

Best of luck!

Engin oil in my radiator on 93 ford bronco 351w


Could be a blown head gasket. Does the vehicle overheat? Do you lose coolant? Is there water in the oil? If the oil has also gone white or grey, you most certainly have a blown head gasket.

Blown head gasket


You need a new head gasket set.
Remove de head and sent to the machine shop to resurface.
And check the problem for over heating. and fix it.
Check the water pump and radiator, hoses and clamps.
