What problems will you have before you blow a head casket

before???? (2.5L , v6/) i have a 04 GV, 2.5L with full factory docs.
casket gasket, , it is close. when it blows to the casket .
no cranks
or now starts.
my guess, car wont start.
1 check all fuses in both boxes. EFI dont run with them blown,
2 check compression, if bad, 150psi on all, is normal, wide open throttle checked only.
if compression is good, the gasket is mostly good
there 2 more tests in this regard, 1: exh, in rad neck tester, and rad leak down tester) the exh, method sure can warn of early head gasket failures.
3: check for spark at all cylinders, not just 1 and check timing same.
4: ok engine will start now in test fuel for 3sec and die or run.
3sec. only means you lost fueling
runs, now means engine was flooded.
ever do the 60,000 mile tunup?

The head casket of my bighorn needs replacement. I have got the head casket set but for the engineer to fix, he needs the Repair Manual Book of the Car

Sorry to be a bit indifferent here but a proper mechanic doesnt need a repair manual ,its a engine be it petrol or diesel and as such its basic mechanics to strip and repair which any competent trained mechanic should be able to do with or without a manual .

Trying to put thermostate in casket wont fit

You need to put the edge of the thermostat into the slot in the gasket. There will be a "cut" on the inside edge of the gasket and you have to thread it on before you put it in the car.

Water leak, trying to figure out if it is head or intake manifold casket. There is a flat ridge under the intake manifold and it has antifreeze on it and it is above the head casket, I was thinking this...

Without checking the head with a pressure test anything is possible. do a compression check on the cylinders and see if you have high compression on a cylinder. If the head is cracked it will let water into the cylinder and cause high pressure. This is still true with a broken intake manifold gasket as well though depending where it is broken. It is possible that what you are seeing is blow back from the radiator over flow. You don't see any leaks when your stationary but if you drive it and then stop and check it you see the fluid. This could be a result of blow back from a loose radiator cap or bad over flow hose.

Head casket

Not that tough but time consuming and a lot of things to remove. You need to buy you a Haynes repair manual or Mitchel manual at your parts store. They are written in laymen terms and easy to understand and they will give you the torque values to re-torque your head bolts once you get to that stage.

This is just a patch to get you home. Fix the car and the problem that made it run hot to cause this gasket to leak. See a funeral home about any casket problems.
