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.

2006 dodge magnum keeps ova heating, I done change pump, radiator, thermostat, coolent system & temp Sensor still have over heating problem, I got to cut the car off & it wnt start back up till cooled


Check the pressure cap and change the coolant if over two years old. While the cap is off see if there any bubbles or oil traces in the coolant, if so you have major engine problems, possibly a bad head gasket.

My car is overheating and the heater is not working. I've been told it's a blown head gasket. I've also been told that I need to bleed my cooling system. So my question is, where is the co


If you have a blown head gasket, surely you will overheat because some hot combustion gases are entering your cooling system. No way you can remedy it by bleeding the system. Bleeding the system is just removing the trapped air in it. Running the engine with out the radiator cap will do the trick.

1990 Honda civic si.....overheating...was told that head gasket is shot...done a compression test on all 4 cylinders...all had at least 135 psi or higher...antifreeze is clean..no oil...although overflow...


Hi, I have a way to test for a blown head gasket. Since you have good compression, yours would have to be small. Recommend you park on an incline, remove the radiator cap, set the heater on high, start the car and let it warm up until there is flow in the radiator. Fill the radiator and keep it full while the engine continues to run. Look for any bleed ports the system may have either in the hoses or at the attach point housings. Crack any bleeders open to allow any air out. Top off the radiator all the way to the neck and make sure there are no bubbles coming up. Bubbles coming out the radiator are an indication of a blown head gasket.

El wagon showing normal temp, had heater on full because smelld hot then shut down, blown water out had to refill slowly and carry on due to remoteness,, have cracked radiator now but no oil in water,...


try the thermostat first because it's the cheapest but just because there's no water in the oil doesn't mean that the head gasket isn't blown. there's a few ways to tell, first let the engine cool off completely and fill with water to the top of radiator then start it with the hood open and the radiator cap off and keep everyone away from it. if the head gasket is badly blown or the head has a crack in it, it will often blow large amounts of water out of the top of the radiator because of the pressure going past the blown gasket or crack. if you are only getting small bubbles coming up then hold a lighter to the opening of the radiator and see if you get an orange flame. if it passes both these tests then it's not likely to be the head. of course you'll need to replace the radiator but check for the cause of the overheating first before you buy a bunch of stuff you don't need because you may find that repairing it will cost more than replacing it if it's an older vehicle.

I recently had my thermostst replaced on my 2000 silhouette and the next day it ran hot. the garage that replaced the thermostat then told me i have a blown head gasket. is that true


could be, but you can verify. First make sure there is no air bubble in your cooling system. Recommend you park on an incline, remove the radiator cap, start the car and let it warm up until there is flow in the radiator. Fill the radiator and keep it full while the engine continues to run. Look for any bleed ports the system may have either in the hoses or at the attach point housings. Crack any bleeders open to allow any air out. Top off the radiator all the way to the neck and make sure there are no bubbles coming up. Bubbles coming out the radiator are an indication of a blown head gasket. If no bubbles, close the cap. Check to see if the car is still overheating. When overheating is due to a blown headgasket, the bubbles are usually easy to see. Please let me know if you have any questions and thanks for using FixYa.

Engine is overheating ,radiator is bubbling, and white smoke from my rear head. blown gasket? or cracked head. and what is the best stuff to use to fix blown gaskets


Blown head gaskets for sure, no way of knowing if heads are cracked without taking it apart, there no quick fix for this, only fix is to take it apart and repair as needed.

My daughter's 2000 Altima looks like there is oil in the radiator and no oil in the engine. Is this a blown head gasket? Where is the drain plug for the radiator? Better yet, what is the process for...


Could be a blown Head gasket or cracked head. Should be a drain at the bottom of the radiator I think on the drivers side. You will need to pull the heads off and have them checked Magnifluxed for cracks. If they find none then install new head gaskets and see what happens. I have the torque specs for your head bolts if you need them. Let me know.

Blown Head gasket/Affordable repair?


The average sale price for a 91 Lexus in the US, is $3900.00. Used radiator would be around $200.00. Machine shop to machine the head (highly recommended) $500.00 to $1000.00. Gaskets and hoses another $200.00. I don’t know how much you have into it, but I hope this helps your decision.
