I have a 2004 nissan maxima that has a water coolant gasket leak. I'm trying to fix it myself but I don't see any threads explaining how.I really need help

Which gasket is it you are talking about ... a cylinder head gasket or a water pump gasket?

A cylinder head gasket replacement isn't straightfoward or cheap to do and requires a lot of technical ability and tools... In the UK a cylinder head gasket replacement would cost about £1000 - probably the same in US dollars

If it is the cylinder head gasket, try a special additive in the coolant system. The images below are generic. You will find similar products in the USA:


For radiator/block sealant have a look for something like:

However, if you're determined to replace a gasket yourself, it's a workshop manual you need.

Have a 99 suburban that runs great with just under 100K, been blowing white smoke. Shop originally quoted head gasket. Upon starting repairs they decided exhaust manifold gasket instead. They replaced the...

Take it to a different shop and get a second opinion. It might need a complete rebuild, or it could be that a head gasket is shot, or one of the heads is cracked. Have them do a compression test and a computer diagnostic. Just guessing at an answer can get expensive.

How to take off radiators

You are better off replacing the defective radiator. Automotive part stores sell different products to seal up leaking head gaskets and radiators. There are two, Bars leak tight and Blue Devil. Both promise to stop the leak and they will do the trick but can clog head gasket cooling ports and the heater core. You will hear both success stories and nightmares. My opinion is to fix it right the first time or not at all. I hope that helps, good luck.

I guess i have a broken head gasket, do you recomend a product called Steel Seal?

you can try it, but read this stuff first. I'd recommend replacing it, but if you haven't the time or money, . . .it sounds like that a lot of people have had success with it. But you can't go wrong with a new gasket Fel-Pro permatorque gaskets are what I use.

Mechanic sais my 97 grand am has blown head gasket, its got about 189000 miles, he sais $700. to repair, is it worth it?

If you want to keep it for another 180000 miles, definetly.....just ensure that it is only head gasket, take for a second opinion, and tell them what you told the first mehanic, dont tell them head gasket, and if they diagnose the same, ask for cost......if close to the first one, go back to him, since he treated you right in the first place.....

How do i repair a blown head gasket on my 1992 cadillac deville V8 4.9L

The correct way is to remove the head(s) have the head(s) checked for warpage repair as necessary then clean everything good and replace the head gaskets. There are some places that advertise a product that is suppose to seal a head gasket leak but remember if it seals the headgasket leak it may stop up your radiator, also it will just be a temporary repair

1996 Subaru Legacy Outback with a head gasket leak

How can a new gasket cause increased compression? Who ever told you that is full of it and I would stop listening to anything they ever say.

Meanwhile, if the car is that good a condition all around, you just might go for it provided you have the services of a good knowledgeable, responsible mechanic. Can you get a another car in the same condition for the 1900 bucks? Do not think so.
And what does a radiator have to do with a head gasket? The repair is just labor intensive to replace a part that only costs a few bucks. But that price is way out of line. At 100 dollars labor for hour it is going to take a good mechanic 8 hours to disassemble and another 8 hours to reassemble the motor? Give me a break!!!!!!!!
