get an oil change and see if you get the same result
any time you flush an engine the posibility of getting gunk on the oil pump screen is good. You may have to remove the oil pan and clean the pickup screen.
back in the day cars had gauges oil, water and son now we have lights the gauges read out in numbers indicating how much pressure and since we have lights we as a people get alerted , and for good reason, a light normally means your oil pump is not pump the right amount of oil its pumping just slower or faster thus the light remains on...
i believe so Yes. Maybe your problem is the intake manifold gaskets rather than the head gaskets. What are the symptons?
YES. The intake gaskets have NOTHING to do with the head gaskets. It is a very common problem that the intake gaskets blow. It is not common for the head gaskets to leak unless the engine was over heated, and I mean HOT.
No, but you might have a problem changing the floor flange 90 degrees so that the toilet could be clamped down again.
Stop drinking for a couple of weeks and see if the flushing stops. If you can't stop drinking for that long, you have a much bigger problem than the flushing.
You will need to replace the intake gaskets to fix your problem. The HEAD GASKETS will not be your problem.
worn piston rings most common problem, but sticking valves, leaking head gaskets can also cause this concern.
it may indicate a blown head gasket If it's a four cylinder they are famous for blowing head gaskets. The new version of the head gasket fixes the problem.
i take it its a 3.1, i did this job a couple months ago, the reason for over heating, did you flush the old gunk out of coolant system, when you were done replacing gaskets. what i did was flush out system, and replaced thermostat while doing intake gaskets. no problem so far!!! as for the roughness it could be anything. but the number 1 problem is a vaccum leak, or fuel injectors are leaking into cylinder making it over rich mixture.
From 1996 to late 1999 There was a problem with the intake gasket design on the Vortec engines. They have sents redesigned the gasket and now it does not leak as often. Intake Gaskets leaking is a common problem. Now the only time you have a problem with the heads is when the engine is over heated, and I mean HOT. Then the heads warp and the head gaskets leak or blow. Chevy just don't have problems with the heads on the V6 and V8 engines.
The clutch, if it is hydraulic, uses a master and a slave cylinder. They would both need to be checked for functionality. This could include new seals (in both) and complete flushing and bleeding of the system. The clutch may only require adjustment of the mechanism at the gearbox, but check the lot if in any doubt.
Yes. The original equipment intake manifold gaskets were of poor design and were prone to coolant leaks. Redesigned gaskets are available today.
I have the same problem. The usual suspects would be the intake manifold gasket, however, it could be a cracked block or head, or uneven mating surface. Last year my 383, (stroked 350 chevy) had a problem with the driver side cylinder head. I use aftermarket aluminum heads by ProTopline. The problem was the oil drain passage in the head wore through to the water jacket and promptly destroyed the lower end and camshaft. The head manufacturer did not stand good for the issue. Anyway, I would start by changing the intake manifold gaskets. Also, do not use the rubber gaskets that come in the gasket pack as they are all but impossible to line up. Simply use a 1/4 inch bead of black RTV gasket cement on the front and rear of the block-not the paper gaskets on the sides that go against the heads. Be sure to use a little extra RTV where the paper gaskets meet the silicon beads.
No, quite the opposite- the idea of gaskets is to ensure that an engine gives HIGH compression. If your car has just had a cylinder head gasket change and you are STILL getting low compression, then this suggests that the problem lies with the cylinder head itself- it may be cracked. Unfortunately there's no effective repair for this, the only solution is to get a new cylinder head I'm afraid.
Will it go into gear when the engine is off and the vehicle isn't moving? If so, it could be a problem with the pilot bearing or possibly the clutch slave cylinder wasn't installed properly. Check it for air bubbles. you may need to bleed the hydraulic line to the slave cylinder.
Changing the depth of field.
No reason to if the intake gasket is the only problem you have. If engine was running smooth and was not overheated then there is no reason to fool with the HEAD gaskets
It will solve the problem. The 3.4 is notorious for poor head gaskets. You can replace the gaskets on the engine without replacing the engine, and that will solve the problem for quite a while. It will be much less costly than an engine replacement.
AnswerCheck all your hoses and connections. Leaky Radiator? Possible clog in line.AnswerI just had this problem with a 95 mustang. It was a blocked up radiator. Unfortunately we found that out after getting the heads decked, new intake gaskets, new head gaskets, new water pump, flushing the block, and a new thermostat.check the fins on the radiator if they are loose you need a new rad
If the problem your having is in your 'cooling system' , flushing it out could help out a lot.
Yes it can leak water through the intake gasket into the runners in the head and smoke white, But the water ports and intake runners are a long way from each other because of the design. SO I would say that you have a cracked head are bad head gasket that is making it smoke. Did you get the engine hot are over heat it ? If so then you have a head gasket or head problem not an intake problem.
i have the same problem and i was told it's the slave cylinder. i'am changing mine. you might want to do the same.
Subaru 2.5 liter engine has a problem with head gaskets. If you have not had your head gaskets replaced, that is the first thing I would suspect.
That means you have WATER leaking into the combustion chamber. BAD head gasket, Intake gasket leaking into the cylinder heads ( NOT COMMON ) Head cracked in are around the valves / from overheating. More then likely you will find your problem in in the head gaskets are heads.
That is a very COMMON PROBLEM WITH those engines. You need to replace the intake manifold gaskets to fix that problem.
Changing the pistons will NOT fix an oil problem UNLESS you have a hole in the piston, which would cause many more problems as well. Placing new rings on the pistons, along with honing the cylinder walls (which is necessary if you are replacing rings) WILL allow the cylinder to seal better, improving compression and stopping oil slipping past the oil ring. It would be wise to check valve guides and seals as well if you decide to change the rings.
