If it is leaking from a bad head gasket, it is because of a bad head gasket. If it is leaking from a bad intake manifold gasket, it is because of a bad intake manifold gasket.
Not very far. If it's only the head gasket your engine should still run but driving it is a very bad idea. with a blown head gasket the coolant channels wont be sealed and you'll lose it all. without coolant the engine would overheat in a matter of minutes.
Yes, that is possible. But, know that if you have a blown head gasket you will do serious engine damage if you continue to drive the vehicle. You need to have this looked at by a trusted mechanic. Do not continue to drive the vehicle.
Since these represent 2 very distinctly different parts of the drive train of the vehicle, it is not likely for a head-gasket to affect the battery.
White smoke is usually the result of burning engine coolant. This is also usually the result of a bad head gasket and/or a cracked head. Don't continue to drive it. Have a trusted mechanic diagnose it soon.
A head gasket is only one of the many gaskets in the engine. Each has a separate function and failure by any one gasket will result in different type of leakage. A head gasket failure is perhaps the most disruptive.
You have a cracked head or a bad head gasket. Don't drive it, you make cause more damage doing so.
Bad head gasket or cracked head. If you continue to drive it you will cause serious damage to internal engine parts.
Yes , engine coolant can get in an engine cylinder from a bad head gasket , a warped or cracked cylinder head , a bad intake manifold gasket etc. ( P.S. I'm not a mechanic / technician )
A bad head gasket or a cracked head will do that.
