02 Elantra wrecked head on collision repaired and immediately afterwards the main baring in the engine failed and now needs engine replaced Had no problems what so ever before the wreck Any thoughts?
During the accident the engine did not shut off in time and it damaged the barring. It happens but there is a shut off switch that is in the car to shut it off. It must have failed.

The head or heads will have to be remove and inspected for cracksor warpage. You then replace the gasket and reinstall the head.Drain the oil and change the filter. Replace the thermostat andpour in fresh coolant. Unless you ran it hot or drove it for a longperiod of time in this condition you may b…e ok. If you just keptdriving it then you will have damage to the rings and bearings anthe engine may need an overhaul. Really depends on how long theengine was driven with a blown gasket. (MORE)
This is not a job you want to undertake if you are asking this question. Best if you take it to a shop.
My 1971 chev truck has 319,000 miles on it & the heads have never been off - If U don't overheat the engine & KEEP the oil changed U shouldn't have a head gasket problem.* keep antifreeze & water pump lube in the radiator.
TAke it to a garage as there is no fuel shut off. I know in some cars there is an inertia switch. When the vehicle gets hit it kills power to the fuel pumpi beleive. Steve Clear all trouble codes and reset the computer, thus resetting the pump kill
You cleaned your 02 sensor your 1994 ford Ranger XLT with a a 30 engine Now the codes read rt and lt bank running lean should you replace or repair?
Answer . you should NEVER clean an o2 sensor. they are very sensitive so you should replace them.\n. \n==POSSIBLE CAUSE=\n. \nIt is quite possible the cause of the code showing (lt bank running lean) is a contaminated Mass Air Sensor which you can usually take off and clean. It should be on the… outside where your air cleaner box is. Use electronic tuner cleaner from Radio Shack; Part (#64-431515) if it's not too dirty. Be careful spraying the "hot" wire inside the sensor and then let dry 15 to 20 minutes. Stick no objects in there; they could break the "sensing" wire. (MORE)
What recourse do you have when the insurance company and repair shop say car engine repairs after a wreck are sufficient although there is now a noticeable difference in engine performance?
Answer . You might have to start with a second opinion at your expense (which you might be able to recover later) from another mechanic. Check your policy to see what the dispute resolution process is. Also, your state government will have a department which oversees insurance companies, and whic…h should be able to help you understand your rights and the insurance company's obligations in your case. Just knowing that you have contacted them may soften the company's stand a bit.\n. \nA couple of helpful articles:\n. \nhttp://law.freeadvice.com/insurance_law/auto_insurance/resolve_dispute_insurance.htm\n. \nhttp://law.freeadvice.com/insurance_law/auto_insurance/government_insurance_regulations.htm (MORE)
Would oil in your radiator be a sign of a cracked head gasket if so would the engine need to be completely replaced?
Answer . it could be the sign of a blown head gasket or a cracked cylinder head provided its engine oil in your radiator , if you have an automatic tranmission\nthere is an oil cooler built into the readiator , make sure that its oil or transmission fluid before you go making a repair- if in do…ubt get a reputable shop to diagnose it . on your own usually either the transmission or the engine will loose fluid , whichever one is leaking - also carefully look for signs that the coolant is not going into either the engine or transmission because that is a bigger problem than the oil in the coolant . whatever you find make usee you clean the radiator with a good cleaning product so that your radiator works efficiently , lots of them on the market today but be careful as many vehicles today have aluminum or plastic radiators and the cleaners used on the old copper radiators will turn a plastic/aluminum radiator into a sprinkling can\nThe engine would not need to be replaced unless it has been ruined by the coolant getting into the engine and ruining it . If its not knocking and you dont have low oil pressure youre probably ok . Time is a real enemy on thsse repairs so get right on it (MORE)
Do you need a new engine if your Kia Rio overheated and you had the head replaced but now it overheats and there is water in the oil?
Answer . I think a "top overhaul" will do. They will just change a gasket which prevents the oil from leaking into the water.
Just had head gaskets replaced in a 95 4runner and now the check engine light is on any chance these 2 things are related?
Answer . \nI would start by looking to see if there is a sensor that did not get hooked up again when everything was put back together. Could be any number of things. Some auto parts stores will attach a code reader to your vehicle to determine the cause of the light being on. Or you may have to… buy a code reader to check yourself or take it to a service place (MORE)
What does it mean when they say the engine was tagged for quality assurance at the auto salvage wrecking yard?
Answer . \nYou would have to contact the salvage yard and find out as there is no standard for quality assurance in the salvage business.
If I have replaced the exhuast manifold on a 1999 Hyundai accent and both O2 sensors before and after the catalyst and my check engine light comes back on what do you need to repair it?
once many years ago the purge valve in my canister caused the light to go on , now I have a different problem. good luck
99 Chrysler 300m After front end collision and repairs engine stalls without warning upon stopping anything to reset after accident was not doing this before collision?
I don't know if this is the same problem but I had a 98 Olds Cutlas Calais that was doing the same thing. Turned out that the torque converter lock-up solenoid was bad. A $20 part that cost about $80 to have installed. Essentially, the part allows the engine to idle at a lower RPM until it gets movi…ng again. May be worth looking into... (MORE)

No, they can be replaced with the engine in the vehicle, but it isnot an easy repair.
Rover coupe with a broken k series engine can you replace this problem engine with the Honda engine or any other engine?
Probably not, you would need a new `K` Series engine as the internals for the engine will be in different places. Honda didnt just put an engine in the rover they also wired the entire car. The engine bays are both totally different. If you still wanted to do this a conversion would need to be… done. (MORE)
if the miles on the engine aren't too high, then just replace the head gaskets. if the whole engine is tired go ahead and swap out the motor. its a lot cheaper to do the gaskets then to buy a new motor.
Replacing a head on an engine is a very complicated task. Most likely, any answer you would get here would not be enough information for you, unless it was a book in length. You should go purchase a manual for that, either a Chilton's manual, or Haynes. Your best bet is to take the vehicle to a shop…. (MORE)
no sir you just have to find where the switch is and u push the rubber part down. its usually in side under passenger plastic panel by feet. if u find u can see how it works by pressin in the button and hitting it against your hand and watching it pop out u want it pushed in to wok.
this depends on wht was damaged. pretty much if engine was flooded,you need to drain all oil from engine.you need to allow all electrical components to completely dry.chane oil and air filters.refill required engine oil level.start engine. it might run a little smoky and ruff for short time while it… burns off any moisture remaining. at this time just let it run and see if it clears. if it does you are in good shape. if it doesnt, then you may have a bad electrical component that needs to be found by using a computer at a shop. tr drying out first.mechanics will tell you a drowned motor is no good. they are not right (MORE)
That kind of behavior is so common, it's happened many times before and since the release of that song.
The main idea of "The Wreck of the Hesperus" is the horrible deathof an innocent, a young maiden who froze to death on tied to themast of a ship in the storm. A secondary idea is to accept theadvice and warning of others or you will walk into your doom.
2001 Daewoo Leganza with 2.2liter engine At 126k timing belt failed What damage to expect Oil light on day before event should I replace oil pump do valves in head or get used motor 50K mile?
Get the used engine! The engine is an "interferance type", damage to valve train when the belt brakes.
Daewoo Matiz is listed as an interference engine.. There is a most likely chance of engine damage ocuring. in the event of the timing belt failing
You need to have it checked for codes, there are many things that can turn on the check wngine light.
Normally the term wreck is used to describe a situation when two objects, at least one being a vehicle, try to occupy the same space at the same time, also known as an automobile accident. "Wreck" can be when two vehicles collide with each other or if one vehicle collides with another object such as… a tree, ditch, house, telephone pole, etc. (MORE)
2001 Subaru Forester and the check engine light came on what you need to know is this something that should have been replaced when you had the head gasket repaired?
You can't exactly pinpoint what caused the check engine light to come on without retrieving the trouble codes. Take your vehicle to AutoZone or similar auto parts store that offers free diagnostic scans and have the trouble codes retrieved and explained.. But first... check your gas cap. A loose ga…s cap can cause the Check Engine light to turn on. Really. (MORE)
8 valve engine is freewheeling.. very little chance of engine damage.. 16 valve is an interference engine.. Most likely damage will have occured.
Could be many things. If vehicle is 96 and newer, get it scanned for codes free at some parts stores. Some things to check: oil pump, bearings, knock sensor.
no it was not. it was the empress of Ireland that happened around the same time as the titanic. Actually in terms of total tonnage (ship and cargo) the largest shipwreck in history was the Kowloon Bridge which sank with a full load of iron ore and oil. In terms of loss of life it was the Wilh…elm Gustloff. It is estimated that the heavily overloaded vessel took 9400 people with her to the bottom when she was torpedoed in 1945. In terms of physical size of the vessel itself, it was the Seawise Giant which was sunk (albeit briefly, having been salvaged and repaired) during the Iran-Iraq war. It was (at the time) the world's largest ship, displacing more than half a million tons. (MORE)

If I replaced the starter and battery and battery cables on my 350 and the starter barely turns the engine What now?
If you are 100% sure that the battery is good and all the connections are clean and tight, then you need a new starter. But make sure all that is okay first. does it have the right starter on it to start with? Have you been working on the engine and have it out of time??
When dashboard icons appear before starting the engine and then turn off after engine is turned on does it mean that future repairs will be needed on those icons?
if it is yellow and looks like a light bulb you are fine (it is just heating up) any thing else I'm unsure
No I have just removed the head off a 2003 Avensis Verso D4D, not easy but possible.
The light is on for a reason. Go to a major chain auto parts store and they will read the code for you, free. That will give you an idea what is wrong.
Just replaced head gaskets on 96 tbird 6-cylinder now you get no fire to plugs but your coil reads 11 volts when cranking engine any sugestions?
Sounds like the coil. The high side of the coil should be 35~70 kilo volts. 11 volts will not jump the spark gap. http://www.marksatterfield.com
Yes, there were a number of dogs aboard the Titanic when it sank. Unfortunatley, many died. However, a few were saved, and there is even a rumor that a dog was found swimming in the water, and was rescued.
Definition of "Check yourself before you wreck yourself" :Take a step back and examine your actions, because you are in a potentially dangerous or sticky situation that could get bad very easily. Often in a harmful manner.
It might because antifreeze is at least 50% water, and it's wellknown water is not compressible. If you have sufficient amount ofwater in tank, it will end up in the combustion chambers and duringone of cycle you can bust your pistons, or rods or everythingtogether. . That's not so. Petrol (or gaso…line) and diesel fuel are notcompressible either, as they too are liquids. All that would happenis that the antifreeze would descend to the bottom of the tank andbe drawn up by the fuel pump. It would not pass through acarburettor except perhaps as a few droplets because it would notevaporate. An injected engine would pass the same quantity of fluidinto the cylinder as normal, but because a water / antifreeze mixwill not ignite the engine would simply refuse to start - or if itdid, would soon splutter to a halt. (MORE)
push it in neutral at 70 mph or greater. Or drain all the oil or coolant out of the vehicle and drive around your block several times.
It absolutely could. A diesel engine does not use spark plugs to fire the fuel mixture. It uses extremely high compression. Gas is much more flammable than diesel and will ignite at a much lower compression ratio. If you put gas in a diesel the gas will fire before the piston is actually at top dead… center. So the piston is still on the up stroke but the fuel has ignited, effectively forcing it down. The first thing to go....other than maybe pistons, would be the rod bearings. (MORE)
Can the engine head be replaced in a 1998 Aurora If not is that engine interchangeable with any other engine?
every head on every car known to man has replaceable heads, but you have to do it step by step with a manual.
Just had intake gasket done on 350 and I believe block was not drained properly if antifreeze was left in engine how fast would it wreck engine?
It would trash the engine bearings real quick. Antifreeze in the oil is a for sure engine getter. I just got done rebuilding a 98 350 vortec that had antifreeze in the oil do to the intake gasket leaking and all the engine bearings were trashed.
I just put a new head on a 2001 Saturn L200 2.2 engine. I now have no compression. Can someone please explain to me why and what needs to be done to fix the problem?
Double check all the timing marks, be sure they are all pointing where they should.
Short answer: It depends on your engine, and your make of vehicle, like if you owned a Mercedes, it would cost more than if you have a Chevy. The Whole Story: Typically, when a head gasket blows, it blows because of a much more severe underlying problem. Gasket kits (the 'parts' required to s…imply replace the head gasked) cost very little, sometimes as little as $20 to $30USD. The common underlying problems that can cause a blown head gasket are a cracked or warped cylinder head, which are both caused by overheating. Sadly, a blown head gasket usually means that your vehicle is going to need a lot of money in repairs before it will run again... You see, once the bad gasket is replaced, the cracked or warped head must also be replaced or sent off for repair by a specialty machine shop. After that, you still must fix the problem that caused the overheating, which could be anything from a $20 valve to a $300 radiator replacement. Taking all this into consideration, a blown head gasket is a major crossroads for a vehicle owner - they must decide whether or not to spend $500 to $1500 USD, or to replace their vehicle. Tough call, and of course, the blown gasket usually never happens on payday! (MORE)
Yes, a blown head gasket will allow coolant to enter the combustion chamber and the oil pan mixing with the oil. This will, if not repaired, slowly destroy the engine bearings and rings. STOP driving this car until you have this repaired.
It is generally unecessary to replace the entire engine if your head gasket is cracked. You will have to remove the head and take it to an automotive machine shop. Have them inspect it to make sure it's lower face is flat and if not have them mill it. They should also inspect the valves and replace …any defective ones. They can also check to see if the head itself is cracked in wich case you'll need a new one. Then you will have to reinstall the head with new gaskets following the directions in your shop/repair manual. (MORE)
Not very much, water and electronics don't mix. If you have enough to short it out because it was turned on is a different amount than if it was off and you do things to remove the water. No amount of water is good and even a slight amount can start to corrode and wreck it later
What if your car was not wrecked but needs repair and the cost of the repair is more that the worth of the vehicle?
Then you should sell the vehicle. If you cannot arrange a private party sale for the vehicle, you may want to consider selling it for scrap metal (contact local scrap and junk yards to see what price you can get for it).
Yes, there are some ship wrecks that are located in Loch Ness.There have been several wreckage's that have be discoveredthroughout the years.
Steer towards the shoulder of the road (in the US, that is the right side).
