I posted about an hour ago but it might not have gone through. Buy a Chilton or Clymers reference manual for your make and model. They are available at any auto parts store.

Were is the Exhaust valve at for the push rods

There is no "exhaust valves" for the push rods. If you are asking where the exhaust valves are, they are in the cylinder heads. You would have to disassemble the engine to the point of having the cylinder heads off the engine to replace the exhaust valves,but usually you would do a complete valve job on the heads if there were a problem of that nature.

Why is water shooting out of the cooling system overflow reservoir?

Sniff around the coolant reservoir for the scent of exhaust fumes and check the color of the coolant in the reservoir.
If you see discoloration or smell 'exhaust' type fumes, you may have a blown head gasket.

1998 Ford Taurus OHV 3.0L. Just replaced both heads. One head was cracked around all three exhaust valves and the valves, seats, seals, and guides were cooked in the other head. Now replaced the car seems...

it could be a poor fuel pump not suppling enough fuel to the injectors when required,a fuel pressure test and flow test should be also could be a cat as when your accelerating you are trying to push out as much exhaust gas as possible and if the cat is plugged it causes back pressure to the point the exhaust stops flowing causing the car to fall on its face.then when you back off there isn`t as much exhaust gas to push out the exhaust system and it runs can get an exhaust back pressure test done to see if this is a problem.

White smoke out of exhaust on my 90 Bonneville......Checked oil looks fine.......What should I expect to pay to have head gasket replaced ??

I was going to say the same thing, sign of white smoke blowing out of your exhuast pipe is usually radiator fluid being leaked into the cylinder and being combusted. In this case it look like it's oyur head gasket and it needs replacment. A head gasket repair is a major work to be done, and it may take up to anywhere from 7-12hrs+ depending on how complicated things are. Most of the repair bill comes from labor and installation. In some case, the engine need to be removed from the car and to be rebuilded. You may be looking at a hefty price tag anywhere from the lowest 800 to 1700.oo+ cost wise. The more cylinder your engine is, the more the price will be. Sometime it is cheaper just to replace the engine, or entirely savage the car and get a new one if the repair bill is more then the car is worth.. You'll have to call around your local repair shop to get a quote vs replacing the engine and deciding if it is best to repair, replace, or savage.

Hi i just wanna ask about the turbo of subaru wrx model 2004 when its started to through white fog from the exhaust pipe the question is: can it be repaired or i must changed it thx

White fog from the exhaust system is an indication of head gasket failure, cracked cylinder head to name two areas as to why this may be occurring. The engine coolant is leaking into the combustion chamber and vaporizing with the fuel mixture as it pass's thru the exhaust. it could also be the turbo itself. hard to say at this point, but either way, it will require dis assembly to correct. Not a cheap repair if the previous conditions I mentioned are found to be the cause.

well the head gasket goes in between the head and the block. take of valve cover, then the exhaust manifold, then the bolts that connect the head to the block. the gasket underneath the head is the head gasket
