In some cases, a car with a blown head gasket can be driven. However, it can lead to some bigger car problems down the line.

Do not drive this car. Repair immediately. Blown head gasket or cracked head.


There are several possible indications of a blown head gasket: If the head gasket is blown between adjacent cylinders there will be poor or no compression in either cylinder. Poor compression in any cylinder can be caused by a blown head gasket. That condition can also be caused by a burned valve or piston. Coolant in the crank case can be caused by a blown head gasket. Compression in the coolant can be caused by a blown head gasket. An engine with a blown head gasket usually loses performance and runs poorly or not at all.

No, a normal tune up cannot cause a blown head gasket. A blown head gasket normally is caused by an engine overheating or by a defect in the gasket or head. If it happened right after a tune-up that is just a coincidence.


No. You can have the head gasket replaced. This is unless you kept driving the car with a blown head gasket and have totally destroyed the engine.


It is not possible to repair the actual head gasket. Repair of a blown head gasket is to replace the gasket.

You cannot repair a blown head gasket, you must remove the heads and replace the gasket.


No. You can warp the heads making your repair costs triple. You can not only warp the heads you can totally destroy the engine. Coolant mixes with the oil when a head gasket is blown. This causes serious engine wear in a short period of time. Never run an engine with a blown head gasket.
