My 2003 grand am just died going down highway i removed the boot from carb water and oil mixture came out head bad?


Common problem with that motor is the intake gaskets fail. It could be that but in reality it sounds like head gaskets are gone

Replace your coolant temperature switch,it's screwed into block by oil filter.Here's a picture of what it look's like.Your water pump working properly.Are your spark plugs burning clean,not oily from bad piston rings?

A mechanic says we need a new water pump, but if the head gaskets are blown, there is no use in putting in a water pump. He said that basically, the car is no good if the gaskets are blown. We can't...


How do you know the head gaskets are blown? Typically on most engines, if the head gasket(s) goes bad, it will either blow white smoke out the tailpipe or cause the water in the overflow tank to boil.
If the car is just overheating after a few minutes of driving, the cause could be a bad thermostat.

Grand prix has a 3.1 6cyl. and 166000 mile, it blow white smoke


Sorry to inform you of the bad news but the white smoke is engine coolant burning off and the rough running condition is also associated with coolant leaking into the combustion chambers.This will be a head gasket repair, basically a head job where you will need to machine the heads down and install new gaskets from the heads up.Get back to me if you have any more questions, thanks and I hope I could help!!!

My 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Will die going down the road. Sometimes it starts back up without me touching the key.other times I have to wait a few minutes before it will crank again.Any suggestions? Thank...


I've got to be reading this incorrectly...You are driving, the engine turns off...you pull off the road? And then without touching the key the engine re-starts, but you haven't touched the key? Or, sometimes you need to sit there for a few minutes and then turn the key to start it?

Jeep starts,clatters, then dies


If you had a blown head gasket you should have water/coolant all over or in your oil. Check your throttle positioning sensor according to specs in your haynes manual. My 02 jeep grand cherokee was chattering while I was driving and ended up dying on the highway and I coasted into this town and luckly an auto parts store was right there. I tested it and it cost me 70 dollars.

My jeep got hot, towed it home , next day went to start it,it rattled and died, is it a blown head gasket?


Quite possible but you will need to do a compression test and cooling system pressure test to verify before taking it apart. Don't forget to look for the cause of the overheat as well...replacing head gaskets (if failed) should be viewed as fixing the result of the problem, not the cause...You don't want to do the job twice.
