How do I check for a blown head gasket on my 1990

Pretty much same answer as I gave for 87 Reliant see below. Shops have equipment to do cylinder leakage test. Do basic stuff below before doing last test ...cylinder leakage...which costs $$$.

Main point you are losing antifreeze/water. Check to see if you have water on the dipstick mixed in with oil. If so...probably a head gasket. If oil looks normal..... Before you do any test, tighten every hose connection. Check for loose connection into antifreeze reservoir. Sometimes there are small cracks on top which lets out pressure from cooling system. Look for leaks on water pump and radiator. Look at spot where you park the car...any liquid on floor? Not sure?..Put piece of cardboard under car to see if liquid is dripping from car. No leaks?...Start with a pressure test of the system. The pressure test is simply equipment that replace the radiator cap, a hand pump connected to it then air is pumped into cooling system. You watch the gauge to see if pressure is dropping. If pressure does not drop ..problem is most like a worn radiator pressure cap or stuck thermostat.. Do not buy the kind with button on cap to push down and release pressure. get original type and correct pressure. If overheating still, thermostat could be stuck, replace. Overheating of engine causes vapor lock, bubbles in fuel, which causes car to stall and kill. When cools off, fuel cools down and fuel will flow through fuel system again. Large amount of oil disappearing with overheating also sounds like head gasket or cracked head....Tighten up all bolts to gaskets, look for oil leaks on garage floor or driveway. If engine has developed a miss when running, pull plugs out and look for wet fouled plug. If antifreeze leaking into cylinder...plug tip will be whitish, if oil leaking into cylinder, grimey oil fouled. Do compression test on cylinder that is fouled and that will pinpoint if bad head gasket or cracked head. When doing compression test, radiator cap is removed and you listen to hear bubbles in radiator from the cylinder leaking into cooling system. 87 Reliant not worth pulling engine apart if head gasket or cracked head. Best oil treatment to reduce oil consumption is "Engine Restore" Used on my 58 Impala 348 tri power for 28 years. If I did not add it after oil changes it used oil and smoked....I swear by it for ANY engine after 100,000 miles.

Repair ecm

why start with the most expensive part that is never bad.?
I5 engine. 4 cylinders. high MPG or high liters/100km

instead, why not check:
  1. CEL lamp glows running? oops. PCM is unhappy.
  2. no matter scan it. scan it with a obd2 scan tool (USA CAR?)
  3. first make sure the engine thermostat reaches 180F. more.
  4. then see if EFI holds closed loop mode,status at hot idle.
  5. If not we fix that 1st.
  6. Then we drive. and make sure at light flat cruise, closed loop holes. if not we fix that.
not guessing, just statistics.
1: fuel pressure i too high, , fuel reg stuck.
2: leaking injectors.
3: ECU stuck in limp home mode, and sucking fuel and has bad sensors.
4: exhaust pipe newer front oxygen sensor cracked, (sucks fuel now)
no cracks allows, or a bad oxy sensor here.
bank1 sensor 1 , replace at 100k miles for best L/km.
5: thermostat bad. runs cold .
6: FAILED to to the 100km tune up. bad. deal there.

there are simple tests in each case.

2011 Gilera Fuoco 500ie excessive oil consumption

Hi, Shahar_shein oil consumption is usually caused by a worn out engine with lots of mileage, new engines can also have excessive oil consumption due to improper break in procedures or faulty parts.The general rule of thumb is anything more than 1 quart of oil consumed in 1,000 miles or 1 liter in 1,500 kilometers means it's time for a top end overhaul. The usual suspects are:
1. Piston rings not properly seated (new engines)
2. Piston rings worn past service limits.
3. Damaged cylinder wall or piston.
4. Valves and guides worn past service limits.
5. Valve seals worn out, crushed or no longer attached.
6. Cracked cylinder head.
7. Head gasket failure.
8. Pinched or blocked crankcase breather hose.

My 2006 cb 599 idles too high when warm. If the clutch is out it is fine. When the clutch is in it idles between 3-5K RPM

You have an air leak between the carburetor and the cylinder head. Old, cracked rubber fittings between carb and cylinder will let excess air into the fuel mix causing a lean fuel/air mixture. Same is true of "O" rings and gaskets. If there is a leak in the head gasket that can lean the mix also. Fix the air leaks and you fix the problem.
