You dont need to remove engine to remove head, but why do you remove head for water damage? usually engine damage from water is a bent rod. your insurance co should be paying for this.

Car overheated now wont start

If you have had the vehicle hot then I would suspect that you will have a breached head gasket at the very least depending on how hot it was and for how long. You may have damaged other component of the engine as well. Remove the spark plugs and inspect for water on top of the pistons or rotate the engine with the spark plugs removed and watch for water purging from the cylinders. If there is water present then you need to have the head gaskets replaced and the cylinder heads checked by a reputable machine shop for cracks. Other components of the engine should also be checked for damage such as the piston rings.

Water poured out and water in my oil

Water in the oil can only mean a few things: a blown head gasket, intake manifold gasket (on some engines), a cracked/broken cylinder head, or a cracked/broken cylinder wall in the engine block.

In any of these cases, it is going to require major engine repair to fix it. There may be moderate to severe damage to the engine bearings (cam and crank bearings) due to the water in the oil. I would recommend TOWING it to a professional repair shop to get an evaluation of the damage. You may be able to fix it with a head gasket replacement and an oil change, or you may have to replace the entire engine. DO NOT OPERATE THE ENGINE OR TRY TO DRIVE THE VEHICLE. This will only GAURANTEE that you will need to replace the entire engine!

Does motor and transmission come out from top or bottom

the engine and trans are mounted to a K frame , and it is easier to service them by removing the car from the k frame and rolling the loaded K frame out from under the car.

Though , some people doing the engine alone.. would say it is easier (due to rusty bolts under the car etc.) to go thru the top to service the engine.

My Toyota Hiace high roof with 3L Diesel Engine heats up. This was after the cylinder head was skimmed and had new valves replaced. Please help me. How can I stop this heating up? Cannon

Your thermostat may be staying closed, if the top coolant hose becomes hot after the engine running for a while, then thermostat is opening ok. Next check to see if the bottom hose going to the rad is getting warm. If its staying cold then you may have a problem with the water pump not circulating the water around the cooling system. If thats ok check the rad cap is sealing ok. when the engine gets up to normal engine temperture remove the reservoir top filling cap which has a rubber pipe going to the thermostat housing. with the engine running there should be no water coming down the pipe and exiting the filler cap. If there is it could be the rad cap not holding pressure which it would need to be replaced or the head gasket is leaking and pressurising the coolant system.. hope this helps you..

Wanting to know the importance of changing a timing belt and what can happen if it breaks or skips a notch

If it skips a notch it will stat running like you need a major tune-up, now if your timing belt breaks you will have major engine damage this is an interference engine which means that the piston will hit your cylinder head valve's and the head will have to be remove to repair, it is recommended to replace the timing belt every 105,000 miles, also I would replace my water pump due to it is driven by the timing belt, if you just replace timing belt and then water pump goes bad you have still have major engine damage, hope this was very helpful.

Water pump or head gasket

If you can see water pouring from the front and the rear of the engine/cylinder head then I would suspect a head gasket. However, why not remove those components which will allow you to fully inspect the water pump first as the chances are that you would also have to remove these items to remove and repair the head gasket. You may also find water in the engine oil or water in the cylinders which can cause locking of the engine and serious internal damage if not addressed immediately.

Water is mixed with oil.

Fix this ASAP, Coolant in oil will ruin bearings. Have a shop check it ASAP. I would check the intake manifold gaskets first.

Overheating, water in oil

You have a bad head gasket. You will not know how bad the damage is until the engine is disassembled. Chances are, a head has warped though, and will need to be machined.

I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.

93 buick park ave Ultra. replacing water pump...must I remove the front passenger side motor mount??

Yes. Put a jack under the motor and remove 3 bolts from side of engine and the long center pivot bolt in mount and the 2 bolts that go top down into the frame and loosen the 2 bolts below mount. Jack up the motor until you can separate the mount, leaving the engine side in and removing the frame side. The engine side can be moved out of the way without completely removing.
