yes in short the metal contracts when it is cold thus giving you less compression, that or it has scratches through the cylinder sleeve or it could be a bad ring but if its the whole engine not just one cylinder its the cold u just need to let it warm up more
A common cause of problems in cylinder head gaskets is leaks in the gasket. When a leak forms, the gasket must be replaced.
If the gasket is replaced by you, then the only cost would be the replacement gaskets which do not cost much.
Intake and exhaust manifold gaskets are also replaced along with the head gasket. Head is inspected and if cracked it is replaced. Head bolts should also be replaced with new ones.
Besides the head gasket and head bolts, any other gaskets, hoses, belts and coolant damaged or lost during the process.
Were the rings replaced at the time the head gasket was replaced? Common problem when replacing the head gasket is not fixing other engine problems which usually go hand in hand with head gasket problems.
I had the upper intake gaskets replaced at a cost of $181.00 but this also included new spark plugs. Two intake gaskets $18.50
if the caliper has been replaced there are two copper gaskets that go between the brake hose and the caliper
It could be either one. However, it is well known that these years of V6 engines had weak intake manifold gaskets from the factory. You might just luck out and it'll be the intake gaskets. You could also do a compression and leak down test to check the head gaskets before tearing it that far down to only find out they were fine.
The head gaskets must be replaced. This is a major repair that should only be undertaken by a professional.
A gasket is a mechanical seal that fills the space between two objects, generally to prevent leakage between the two objects while under compression. Gaskets save money by allowing "less-than-perfect" mating surfaces on machine parts which can use a gasket to fill irregularities. Gaskets are commonly produced by cutting from sheet materials, such as gasket paper, rubber, silicone, metal, cork, felt, neoprene, nitrile rubber, fiberglass, or a plastic polymer (such as polychlorotrifluoroethylene). Gaskets for specific applications may contain asbestos. It is usually desirable that the gasket be made from a material that is to some degree yielding such that it is able to deform and tightly fills the space it is designed for, including any slight irregularities. Many gaskets require an application of sealant directly to the gasket surface to function properly.(taken from gasket article from wilipedia)
did you check the radiator or the head gasket?
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.
For sure, replace ALL the gaskets involved. When you purchase, ask for a head gasket set and you will get all the gaskets that are used.
it could be a blown head or bottom end gasket- i had the same thing happen on a snowmobile i replaced the gaskets and it cured the problem
Verification on your question: Do head gaskets make cars lose pressure....hmmmmm, I think what your asking is.... Does a head gasket make an engine lose compression. - Correct?The simple answer is yes, it does, but it is by design. The amount the head gasket lowers the compression (or pressure) is built into the overall design of the engine. For instance, if you were to assemble the head to the block, without a gasket, you would raise the compression (pressure) slightly and potentially cause damage to the engine. This would most likely become apparent when you burn out a valve or burn a hole in the top of a piston.In general terms: - The greater the compression ratio, the bigger the explosion in the bore and the more heat that is produced.
If you needed a gasket and they replaced it then yes you would be charged for the gasket.
Normally the answer is no. The only way the rings would need to be replaced is if the engine was worn severely or if you just kept driving it with the blown gasket and did serious internal damage. No way to know until it is opened up.
You need to CLEAN the intake up real good where the gaskets fit against it. Then make SURE that the intake is NOT PITTED, If intake is real smooth then there is no reason to replace it. Just replace the gaskets.
Flat washers. Spring washers. Rubber gasket. Felt washers. Asbestos gaskets.
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
loosing compression does not mean you have to get a new motor it can just mean u have a blown head gasket if its an old carIf compression is lost on only a few cylinders, then check the head gaskets. If compression is lost on all cylinders, check for a worn or broken timing chain.
does nanotechnology ( head gasket and block repair) fix blowen head gasket
Replace the head gaskets.
Around £100 for the head gasket and associated gaskets which should be replaced also plus around 8 - 10 hours labour, if you're lucky under £500 inc VAT (UK price)
I am assuming you mean "rocker cover" gasket. All you have to do is simply take the cover off, peal away all the old gasket, clean both gasket surfaces, and then use a small amount of RTV silicone in the corners of rubber gaskets (NOT CORK GASKETS) and then re-install the new gasket in place of the old one.
