As long the blowing didnt warp or damage them no but i would still have them checked out for damage warping scarring and while heads are off might be a good time to upgrade valves to better high performance or gas saving valves there not always milled the same

the springs is what keeps the valves correct

How can you tell if you have a blown head gasket in a 2003 Ford Explorer if no water is in the oil


Water in the oil is not the only symptom of a blown head gasket. You can have a blown gasket where the cylinder gasses are being injected into the the water jacket only. This will overpressurize and overheat the engine. There is a test that can detect this using a coolant sample from the radiator to test for hydrocarbons present in exhaust. Lastly, the gasket can blow to the exterior of the engine, allowing compression gasses to escape the engine block. The quickest DIY test to determine the possibility of a blown gasket is a cylinder compression test. The compression should be approximately the same in all cylinders and should not leak down quickly. If it does, this indicates either a blown head gasket or possible valve issues.

I have no compression in cylinder 1 it has only 15 pd of pressure but it doesn't smoke


Do a cylinder leak down test

Still nothing ,the valves are worn,head comes off

Compression does not tell you if a valve seals properly,
only how much pressure your building at cranking speed

Severe oil leak


It could be a bad oil pressure sending unit, valve cover gasket, timing chain cover gasket or oil pan gasket. If there's white smoke coming out of the exhaust it could have a blown head gasket but it's not a common problem with that engine.

Moisture showing at the rear of odd numbered valve cover...and milky looking condensation in the valve cover breather...there is no dipstick for this engine...the car doesn't run hotter than 180 and I...


The FIRST thing you need to do is get a dipstick. The condensation in the valve cover is most likely from moisture getting drawn into the engine through the dipstick tube. Not to mention that it is also drawing unfiltered air in that can mess with your air-fuel ratio and act like sandpaper on your internal engine parts.

Also, if you are afraid that you may have water in your oil, you can check for water in the oil by taking the oil pan drain plug out.

Blown head gaskets don't make the engine run cold, they make them run HOT! (Over 240)

Blown head gaskets also do not make things come out of the valve cover. The valve cover is ABOVE the head gasket. Gravity makes liquids run downhill. You most likely just need to fix an oil leak at the valve cover.

Well i did the batt and the alt to now i have a los of coolant and now i have water form the tail pipe what is it


not a complete history in your brief 'sentence', but water from the exhaust is either condensation whick is normal, or you have a blown head gasket or worse (cracked head or block) which is going to be very expensive to fix. If it is not overheating too, you have nothing to worry about, if it is you need to get the car to someone who can do a compression test and cylinder and/or coolant leakdown test to determine the extent of the damage.

What's the difference between a blown head gasket and a blown intake gasket?


The head gasket goes between the block and the head, and seals the combustion process, and cooling water, and (if oil is pumped obove the heads to valve components) oil pressure.

Intake gaskets seal between the intake manifold and the head, and seal against intake vacuum, and in many cases, coolant.

A badly blown head gasket will so destroy compression in the cylinder that you can hear uneven cranking as that cylinder comes up on compression, kind of a “whir, whir, WHIR, whir, whir, WHIR, whir” with the capitalized whir being the engine spinning much faster due to no compression holding the starter back.

You will never be able to hear a problem with an intake manifold gasket until the engine actually starts to fire and/or run.

Cooleant hose line broke car overheated car stoped runing no visible steam smoke replaced broken line added fluid car will still not start low compression in two chambers do I have a blown head gasket?


Remove the radiator cap,and fill to very top with coolant,then turn the engine over,and see if it pushes out the radiator ,or looks like a water fountain when turning the engine over,if it does,then the head gasket is blown,and possible warped.If not,pull the valve cover to see if the cylinders that are low,have stuck valves,that are open.Check to see if the motor oil is milky in color.If so,the heads could be cracked.Or head gasket blown.
