Question From Jack421 on Blown Head Gasket

What is a easy way to replace a head gasket with a leak!

Response From autotecha

What vehicle,engine and year?
Like Re-tired said, get a manual and follow it. Do you have the tools or experience? Some are easier than others. Some I even hate doing lol. get a manual (or go to local library) and research it before you attempt it. Make sure you have the tools, materials, time and patience to do it. Not trying to discourage here. You can save a lot of money doing it yourself (just price of gaskets and misc. little items, and no labor charges).

Response From Jack421 Top Rated Answer

I am a novice with no expierence do you think I can mess up my car attempting to do the head gasket myself, following a manual?

Response From Sidom

Everyone has to start somewhere......
I would strongly advise having someone else there with enough experience to do the job in an advisory role. You do the work or you're not going to learn, doing & watching are 2 completely different things.....

What type of vehicle is this???

Response From autotecha


I am a novice with no expierence do you think I can mess up my car attempting to do the head gasket myself, following a manual?
Possibly but possibly not. What vehicle is it (year, make, engine etc..). Some are easy some are a pain in the a&%. I just recommend researching and planing ahead to see if you can do it. I rebuild my first engine (not completly but close) at the age of 12 using just a manual and no help. But that was back when, and the engines were not as complex as today (but the theory is still the same).

Response From Sidom

Slip & slide

Response From re-tired

By far the easiet way for you is to have a shop do it for you . All kidding aside the BEST and least hardest is to buy a manual and follow it.

Question From maddtigress on head gasket

What are the steps to removing and replacing a head gasket on a 454 big block engine need torque specifications and sequence

Response From maddtigress

1988 chevy camper with a 454 engine. A friend is taking it apart. I really just need the torque specifications for the head bolts.

Response From Tom Greenleaf


That's the general idea. Depending on bolts, gaskets used, washers used could be different.

Check with any instructions in gasket set specific to this exact engine,

T

Response From maddtigress Top Rated Answer

thank you!!

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Year and model will help. Intake gaskets are needed too.

How did you come to the diagnosis of this needing a head gasket?

Question From marksauto on head gaskets repair

any body have info on THERMOGASKET, a sealer for bad head gaskets,cracks ect.will it work?

Response From ihatemycar

I dont know to much about it, but it sealent should work for awhile.

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

Sealers are a maybe for a quick fix and less likely to work on head gaskets. Too much of that stuff will plug up the cooling system. It's not really a repair method but rather a band-aid approach,

Blown head gasket?

Question From grampyjimbo12 on Blown head gasket?

I am a bit confused, i have an 04 Saturn ion2 with a 2.2 Liter Dohc engine. It has a blown head gasket, i have been told that there is an O-ring somewhere in the engine that will also make it act like a blown head gasket? Is this true? The car has approx. 173k mi.
If this is true where would this O-ring(s) be located?

Response From Hammer Time Top Rated Answer

Well, I guess that depends on what you mean by "act like a blown head gasket". What symptoms are you describing?

Response From grampyjimbo12

Water in the oil, and steam out of the exhaust. I already have the head off ( Not warped even!) but i have heard people say " oh, yeah it's just a 20 cent o-ring" any validity to this claim?

Response From Hammer Time

No, not really. Did you send this head to a machine shop? These Saturn heads are pretty prone to cracks. What you are describing are really 2 different issues. A breach between an oil port and coolant wouldn't necessarily cause steam in the exhaust and vise-versa. They also have issues with leaking engine oil coolers but again, no steam in the exhaust. Something is not adding up here.

Response From grampyjimbo12

Will send to machine shop next week. I will ask them to check for cracks. I noticed a spot on the #4 cylinder wher it looks as if the head gasket was broken but, did'nt think about a cracked head 'till you mentioned it.

Response From Discretesignals

File in Section: 06 - Engine/Propulsion System

Bulletin No.: 03-06-123-001

Issue Date: November, 2003

TECHNICAL INFORMATION BULLETIN

Subject:
Slight Loss of Coolant or Low Coolant Light Coming On with No Signs of External Leaks (Perform Service Procedure in this Bulletin)

Models Affected:

2003-2004 Saturn VUE and ION
2004 L300 Vehicles
with 2.2L Engine (VINs D, F - RPO L61)

Attention:
Parts Manager and Technician

Condition:

Some customers may comment that the low coolant light is coming on and/or the coolant level is low with no external leaks visible. Low coolant may be accompanied by one of the following when the engine is cold:

^ engine being difficult to start

^ engine misfire for several seconds

^ white smoke or coolant odor from the tailpipe

Cause:

This condition may be caused by porosity in the aluminum of the cylinder head casting.

Correction:

Follow service procedure in this bulletin.

Service Procedure:

Diagnostic Checks

1. Verify low coolant level.

2. Inspect all coolant hoses and connections for coolant leaks.

^ If leaks are found, replace hoses and/or tighten clamps as necessary and return vehicle to the customer.

^ If no leaks are found, check engine oil for signs of coolant contamination. Add black light dye (SA9176NE) to the cooling system and start engine. Run engine until it is at normal operating temperature 180°F (82°C) to allow the dye to circulate through the system.

3. Pressurize cooling system to 25 psi (172 kpa) and monitor gauge for pressure loss during remaining inspections.

^ Inspect complete cooling system hoses and connections for visual signs of external leaks using the black light (J42220).

^ Remove spark plugs and inspect threads for wetness from coolant and check with black light (J42220).

^ Using a flashlight, inspect combustion chambers for any sign of wetness from coolant.

4. If no pressure loss and no signs of internal or external leaks, return vehicle to customer.

5. If pressure gauge shows loss of pressure and there is evidence of external leakage from hoses or other external cooling system components, correct the leak using the appropriate service manual procedures.

^ If coolant is present on any spark plug thread or visible in a combustion chamber, replace the cylinder head. (Refer to the "Cylinder Head Replacement" procedures in the appropriate 2.2 (L61) Engine Mechanical Service Manual for the vehicle being repaired.)

^ If pressure gauge shows loss of pressure and no external leaks, remove cylinder head and inspect cylinder liner height to block deck surface for flushness.

- If a cylinder liner is not flush with the block (lower than block surface), replace the cylinder block. (Refer to the "Cylinder Block Replacement" procedures in the appropriate 2.2 (L61) Engine Mechanical Service Manual for the vehicle being repaired.)

- If all cylinder liners are flush with he block surface, replace the cylinder head. (Refer to the "Cylinder Head Replacement" procedures in the appropriate 2.2 (L61) Engine Mechanical Service Manual for the vehicle being repaired.)

6. Verify leaks have been corrected.

Response From grampyjimbo12

Ok thanks, I hope i don't have to replace the cylinder head. I am getting the tell-tale white smoke from the tailpipe. Also the milky oil contamination so i guess i might have to replace the head.
