I would like to add to the Head gasket replacement this will involve setting the engine timing to TDC (top dead center) before removing the cylinder head, The timing belt needs to be removed. after the head has been removed the bottom surface(the end that contact the engine block) will need to be checked for warpage with a straight edge tool. If it measures out of specs it should be resurfaced.

Well what you may have to do is replace the gasket.
U have to buy one and then replace it. In order to do that u have to take the heads off. Take the old gasket off. Put your new one where the old one was. And apply some sealant so that it will stay. Once u do that. Just put everything back together. Or u can take the easy way and pay someone to do it. But thats all that i know. Hopefully it helps you with your problem.

94 nissan bluebird head gasget replace


You really need a manual to do this job. I can tear any thing down. But I have to have torque specs and sequence, plus timing alignment. Both are critical. Just a note.. Since it is a 94. If you have really high mileage, doing a head job, may blow out the piston rings. Just wasted money.

How do you know which head or gasget is blown/


Try this to see if helps you figure this out. Try filling up the radiator with water. Start your engine with the radiator cap off look for bubbles the bigger the bubbles the worse the leak. Look for tan colored oil on the dipstick. When oil mixes with water it turn a creamy tan color.

1994 toyota pickup blown head gasket. is that an easy fix? can i do it in my school autoshop and or driveway?


So the first question is ... is it really a blown head gasket? Could also be damaged head, block, etc and the timing chain can wear through it's housing and allow coolant into the oil. If it is a blown head gasket then why did it happen? Is the head warped, coolant passages corroded, or ?? Here's link to
a '93 manual to give you some idea what you're dealing with. http://personal.utulsa.edu/~nathan-buchanan/93fsm/ Can you replace the gasket in shop or driveway ... depends on what sort of
complications you run in to. You may want to have a valve job done while you're there, maybe
time to do the timing chain, etc. Give it a try.

Blown head gasket. what is the cause? there is very high pressure in the radiator and eventually a lot of air and little coolant. it then starts over heating because all the coolant gets pushed out at the...


Running hot will cause head gasget to fail. Or if head is not torqued properly, or a faulty head gasget. Pressure in cooling system means, blown head gasget or cracked head.

most vacuum leaks are in hoses that are disconnected or have holes in them you can also take a bottle of water and spray it along the side of the intake and base of the carborater if the motor bogs or you here it **** the water in you have found you leak but it can be a leak under the intake and that is a bigger problem to find

Check the backside bottom of the carb. there's a vacuum port there. Make sure it's plugged up. How's you timing? Also try rotating distributor back and forth. It may be a timing issue. Not enough or too much.
