SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE THE PLATE UPSIDE DOWN OR ROTATED. ALWAYS MARK A CORNER AND WRITE UP ON THE TOP SIDE. KEEP IN MIND THE AIR HAS TO FLOW THRU THE VALVE DOWN INTO THE CYLINDER WHEN PISTON IS GOING DOWN AND THE VALVE MUST CLOSE WHEN THE PISTON IS COMING UP. MAKE SURE YOUR VALVES ARE CLOSING ALL THE WAY.

2003 Buick rendezvous oil in rthe coolant and vise vera


speculation is all I have, but it could be a cracked block, or a warped head/block mating surface. It happens when overheating.
I'm not an expert on the engine, but I know there were lots of problems with those getting oil/coolant mixing. If you ever get it fixed, keep 60-65% dexcool, not 50/50. seems to help prevent.

Hitachi Ec 119 compressor will not build pressure beyond 25 pounds; no air is heard leaking after I power down the machine. Is it likely the check valve or pressure switch?


If your compressor keeps running and only builds to 25psi, I would suspect the reed valves, head gaskets or a leak. With the compressor running spray soapy water on all fittings, around the head area and tank components. If no leak is found, remove the air filter and feel for suction at the intake(make sure head is not too hot). If you feel good suction at first then suction is lost after reaching 25 psi, most likely reeds or gaskets (with bad reed valves, sometimes you will actually feel air blowing out of the intake). Good luck

AIR PRESSURE PROBLEM


The issue suggests that the head gasket is blown between the two cylinders or the reed valves are not seating or broken. The only other condition that would cause this is a leak. Here are a couple of simple tests. For leak spray soapy water on all connections and fittngs including the pressure regulator and the bottom of the pressure switch while unit is running. Repair as needed. If no leak is found, run compressor untill it reaches 60 or stops increasing and feel for suction at the air filter intake. The best way to check for suction is to remove the air filter and feel for suction at intake port-hole. The suction should be very strong. When valves are leaking it almost feels that the air is blowing out thru intake. If little or no suction, remove head and valveplate and replace parts as needed. Parts are available at www.chpower.com or www.toolpartsdirect.com. Good luck and post again if you have other question.

1991 toyota 4 runner heater does not work, the fan works, but no hot air comes out front or back. I just had the head gasket replaced and also cannot use a thermostat because it will overheat.


If you can not use a thermostat. you have bigger issues than no heat. head may have crack. head gasket may have been put on wrong. Plugged radiator. bad waterpump. if everything is functioning properly you need a thermostat to keep the engine running at the proper temp that is was designed to run at. Make sure that the cooling system is completely full and does not have an air lock preventing coolant from circulateing.

I have a 1995 cadilac elderado that keeps over heating, it has excessive preasure building up we have changed the thermastate, ran a hot wire to the fan so it always runs , changed tempature sending unite...


When the engine is cold,and the radiator is full,starting the engine,does it blow out the radiator?If it does,then a head,or head gasket is blown.If not,bleed the system of air.The engine cooling system might have air that needs to be purged out.

My 125 cc giovanni bike is blowing smoke


Depending how many Kilometres it has done you may find that the rings could be wearing out .
Also if you use a wrong oil , too thin , it will burn it .
you could have a faulty valve guide which lets the oil through the head and burns it up .

White smoke coming out tailpipe


If your intake gaskets are leaking, when you dump soapy water on the gasket, it should bubble like crazy ( when it's running). If you can, run it with the rad cap off and watch for bubbles. If it keeps bubbling, you probably have a head gasket problem.

Drops compressiom from 120-60 psi after 3 new pressure switches


When the pressure switch fails the comperssor will overpressure to the point of safety release at about 150 - 160 psi. It sounds as if your compressor is not producing enough pressure to cycle off at 120 and just keeps running. This happens when air is leaking from fittings or worn cylinder / reed valves. Don't worry, with some simple tests we will find the actual problem. I am assuming that your compressor is oilfree type. If there are leaks the compressor may not reach set pressure. I use soapy water on all connections and on the head/headvalve (remove plastic covers to get to all parts that may leak) while compressor is running. Make repairs as necessary. If still low pressure, while compressor is running and has reached max obtainable pressure (in your case 60 lbs), carefully place finger over intake port hole (remove filter). If the compressor is pumping normally but leaking there will be ample suction at intake and cause the compressor to speed-up when intake is obstructed with finger. If you feel plenty of suction and no visible (soapy water) leaks, then the problem is probably the cylinder /ring is not correctly seating /scratched and air is leaking past cylinder. Make sure that the cylinder /piston ring is properly aligned and that the lip on the vinyl ring is up toward the head. On oilfree compressors you can examine the cylinder by pushing the piston all the way up, then look for scratches neer top of cylinder. If scratched, pressure is leaking past cylinder, install cylinder kit. If you do not feel suction but rather air blowing out of the intake, (do this test when tank has reached 60 psi) then the problem is the headvalve plate/reed valves are leaking. The reeds must seal perfectly on their seats and not be bent or have obstruction. Replace as necessary. If reeds or headgasket is leaking the discharge air will be very hot. Only one other thing to check and that is the intank check valve. Easy to check. Run compressor till you have about 50+ lbs in the tank then unplug compressor. Carefully loosen the inlet hose at checkvalve and listen for air leaking out of tank. (check valve is the brass valve at tank) If leaking replace checkvalve. Use caution when removing head to try and save the gaskets. If you have oil type pump, and no air leaks (soapy water test) suspect reed valves/valve plate. Good luck on your repair and email if you have other question.

95 xr7 wont start after head gasket up replacement,got spark got fuel set timing. only thing is intake blows instead of sucks? is that normal? what could the problem be?


Do you mean the air intake? If your air intake blows and the motor doesn't run it may mean your valve timing is wrong. How did you set your valve timing after you took off the head? If you weren't careful you may have set the timing for number 1 cylinder on its exhaust stroke and not its power stroke. This will put your timing 360 degrees out.

Incorrect valve timing may produce the effect that the engine pumps air out of its intake when it is cranked.
