It's always good practice to have the head skimmed. I would do it. As for the torque specs I'll have to look into that cause it doesn't show in my database.

Kia Spectra Was Driven Hot , It Overheats And Blows White smoke,is This A Serious Problem or Fixable Its Not Seized!! It Runs But Gets Hot!!


If you overheat an engine with a cast iron block and an aluminium head, they will expand at different rates as they have different expansion coefficients. This will usually cause separation of the gasket and if you are losing coolant, it's a near certainty. The answer is a new gasket (pennies) plus a head skim at a local engineering shop, $100 or so (otherwise it won't seal again). You need a torque wrench and a workshop manual to check the torque settings and slackening/tightening order if doing it yourself, otherwise you'll cause further warping of the head. If the head isn't skimmed, it will go again after 50 miles or so.

Hi Dave Any adjustable torque wrench will be fine, as long as the correct settings AND sequence is followed.... ....Have you taken the head to have it checked for distortion....Its a good idea when doing any work which requires the removal of the cylinder head, especially so if the engine over heated at all....Have it checked at an engineering company and skimmed if need be.... ....Regards Johngee10

Bmw 1996 316i i have had the head gasket skimmed new gaskets on there is white smoke coming out of the exhust. and the oil in the head is like a carmel colour like cream but its not losing power or...


Hi,
Something is wrong with the head to engine connection. The white smoke is water burning from the sylinder(s) and the cream colored oil means you're getting water in the oil... this isn't good. You'll have to remove the head and re-assess this connection. Make sure the gasket is correct to all the water jacket ports and upon reinstallation, follow the correct torque sequence for the head.
I hope this helps, though it's not good news... sorry.

Blown Headgasket


without mechanical knowledge, best left to a garage. if you have a bit of knowhow then do an assessment of what is connected to the head, inclusive of exhaust manifold and fuel inlet manifold, wiring etc.Once you decide how to do it, note where all bolts and wires go.Clean every bit of old gasket off all faces and as the head is alloy get a head skim from a motor factor or machine company. You will need a new set of cylider head bolts and full head gasket set. Torque settings , however will need to be obtained along with the head bolt sequence for retightening

OIL IN RADIATOR


gas or oil in radiator is usually strong indication head gasket is blown, not good idea to keep running it like it is.

Audi A4 2.5 V6 TDI - Creamy grey coolant in expansion tank


Sounds like blown head gasket (or worse) still to me.
Remove oil filler cap and look for grey oil.
Never use water these days but special coolant. Water makes vapour spots and cause block cracks, worse then blown gaskets!!!
vapour does not cool very well.
Look like you have cracks already.
Take a compression test if possible. But might not show op at that temperature.
The gauge indication troubles me.
