Cannot diagnose or run temp. Sealer for what i believe is head blown because car wont start it cranks but sputters and kills battery?

Sounds like head gasket again, but may be more serious this time. Overheating is not something to take lightly.

Pull plugs. crank. Water come out of cylinders? Head gasket. Possible cracked block or head this time, too. I'd be looking at a replacement engine.

95 honda accord loosing coolant and overheating

It may sound like a simple question... Was the radiator cap replaced when the radiator was replaced? If not, start there. If it was, check to see if the coolant in the radiator looks like peanutbutter or if the oil on the dip stick looks the same. It could be a blown intake gasket, bad head gasket or a cracked head.

My heater on my 95 ford windstar blows cold air not hot what is it

Thermostat and change your radiator cap, if your adding antifreeze alot than it may be a blow head gasket. I was loosing antifreeze out my tail pipe, tried fiberlock and it worked. Make sure your upper and lower hoses are good and not squishy. I did the thermostat the radiator cap and hoese and I got my car working. I have 224,000. on my windstar and still going strong. And windstars are not know to live lone because of there head gaskets. Good luck.

95 Escort Sedan with a blown head gasket, water in the oil, Compression is...150,100,150,150 and #3 cylinder had a bit of water in it when spark plug was removed. Question is... What should I expect to...

the heads on escorts are alluminum, and they will crack, or blow a head gasket fairly easy, if the engine overheats bad, but you will have to remove the head, and have the head checked for warpage, and or cracks in it, once the head and gasket is replaced, the motor oil and oil filter will definitely have to be changed, before you drive it, hope that this information has helped you.

Overheating, no heat.

Sounds like you've got either a cracked head or blown head gasket now; this will give you your poor performance. As for what caused the overheating in the first place; you need to check out. Water pumps commonly go out, allowing the antifreeze to leak out, causing your overheating, or even heater cores. Once you got it hot, it warps the head, and blows the head gasket. More than likely, you also have white smoke coming from the exhaust, especially when you first start it for the day. The biggest worry, is if your head is warped too much, and if you have excess blow-by from the piston rings losing their strength from getting too hot.

'99 Windstar. Overheated and threw belt off.

overheating can damaged cylinder head gasket resulting to low or no engine compression.coolant may enter inside the bore.check compression in all cylinders and traces of coolant on sparkplugs.compression of 100psi is still acceptable.

a blown head gasket can be the cause of overheating. at the age of this car I would recomend that while you have it apart replace your water pump, thermostat, belts and hoses. have the heads checked for cracks and resurfaced if needed. check the block and the water ports.

My 95 rr county is overheating. I replaced my thermostat and coolant doesnt leak. What can be causing the overheating?

the water pump may be defective, or the head gasket might be blown. Smell the exhaust and if it smells "sweet" - if so, have a cylinder leak-down test done to see if one of the head gaskets blew.

bad headgasket = water in oil (milky) or oil in water (foamy I think).
but yea, ah... I had a Ford once. My experience is that once something like this starts the only thing you can do to repair it is to buy a japanese car. lol
