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.

I had my intake manifold gasket change along with the valve cover gasket. White smoke is still coming out of tailpipe?


White smoke may indicate an internal coolant leak or low coolant reservoir levels. Coolant leaks can also leak into the oil of your car causing it to be frothy or milky looking smoke. You might have a cracked head gasket, engine block, or cylinder head which are all caused by overheating.

What are signs and symptoms of a blown head?


white smoke out the tailpipe and the smell of anti-freeze in the exhaust gas. an engine that over heats either only at highway speeds or town driving, when all other things like, rad cooling fan working properly, thermostat is working properly, no external coolant leaks. the spark plugs may show signs of coolant on them. just some things that are indicators.

Oil in the radiator


Oil in the radiator might be automatic transmission fluid cooling lines that run into the radiator that are leaking. OR its stuff that is collected over time if the cooling system was never flushed and cleaned out. Its usually antifreeze in OIL not the other way around which means blown head gasket or leaking intake gaskets.

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.

Oil mixing with antifreeze!


Hi. this is caused by a blown head gasket or warped head. This situation is very serious and it will require immediate attention as soon as possible. If this gasket or head isn't repaired, it will ruin the entire engine.

The most common situation here is a blown head gasket but, it can exceed to a more serious issue like an warped head as well.

please rate and god bless:)

Oil leaking into coolant system


OK this can be 2 things. Either a blown head gasket which can produce oil in your coolant and over heats the engine. The 2nd is less likely and that is that your radiator and oilcooler both are leaking.
My guess is the head gasket. Good luck this will cost you quite a bit.
