Hey everyone. I have another issue with my 84 2.8 liter s10. Major problem the head gasket blew and i need to replace it. I know that I need to replace the intake manifold gasket, valve cover gaskets, and probably the water pump gasket because they cant be put back on without new ones. I need a dyi on the full R&I for the gasket as well as parts that I may need.

Engine was ruuning hot pd 800. to have it repaired 5 days later the head gaskets blew. is that normal?


Head gasket blowing is not normal. Need a clue as to what the 800 bucks went to doing, to know if related or not. If the head gasket fails, just replacing the gasket does not fix the issue, the gasket is a victim. There will be something else wrong, like warpage or cracks. AND this may not be the issue causing the overheating...

My chevy s10's radiator blew I replaced it... Drove about 8 miles home. Truck sat overnight. Drove about 10 miles the next day and it wouldn't start back up. The dealership says it's either a blow head...


the head could be cracked also. check the oil if its milky then its the head gasket or head probably. if no then when its running is there alot white smoke that also could be a cracked head or head gasket.the first is antifreeze leeking into the oil system usually cracked head. the second is antifreeze leeeking into the cylinder
so no external leek

If this car needs head gasket is it worth buying


A head gasket repair is major work, not worth it unless the car is really nice and dirt cheap. One side note is that if this car has the 3.1 or 3.4 liter engine they are notorious for intake gaskets leaking that will have alot of the same symptoms as a head gasket but its alot less work to repair. Good luck!

96 s10 2.2 cyl. . started spitting an sputtering like water in fuel. What could this to happen? What should i do first?


This is a very common problem with the 2.2 Liter engine. The Cylinder Head Gasket has most likely failed due to expansion and contraction of dissimilar metals. The Cylinder head is Aluminum and the Cylinder Block is Cast Iron. The Cylinder Head expands at a greater rate than the Cylinder Block creating a Scrubbing Action on the Head Gasket. Another problem on this engine is the passenger side rearmost Cylinder Head Bolt is typically overtightened at the factory distorting the Cylinder Head and causing Gasket Failure directly around that bolt. I have had to resurface cylinder heads and replaced gaskets on many of these engines where these symptoms were described.

Wow, sounds like head gasket &/or timing problem. First thing you need to do is a pressure test on cooling system to see if head gasket gone, then I'd do a compression test as well. Have you pulled any spark plugs to see what they look like?
