blowing head gaskets
The type of engine under the hood. Well known for blowing head gaskets.
If your oil pressure gauge is high you have to much oil in your engine. Overfilling your engine can result in you blowing out your gaskets.
yes, but what kind of gaskets are you talking about?
Cadillacs are notorious for blowing head gaskets. You may want to look into that.
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.
water in the engine oil or a large amount of water in the exhaust also a compression test
Yes. The oil will expand as the temperature of the engine increases leading to numerous problems from blowing gaskets to aerating the oil which leads to poor lubrication of the main components. In a nutshell it's can be as bad as underfilling.
Head gaskets are supposed to last the life of the engine. There is no "care" specific to head gaskets.
There are many gaskets on any car engine. If you are asking about head gaskets, they are between the cylinder head(s) and the engine block. The cylinder head is under the valve cover. --------------
Sounds like your oil drain passages in the motor are blocked up. When the oil is getting pumped up it is unable to drain back down and is blowing out your seals and burning up the oil.
On the very top of the engine there is a intake manifold and the intake gaskets go between the intake and cylinder heads.
usually overheating of the engine
You could blow the gaskets
Engine Overheating is the major cause.
It'll leak pretty bad without gaskets. I soak the gaskets overnight in a pan of water before installing. Seems to help.
could be a faulty thermostat don't over heat it to often you'll end up blowing your heads gaskets drive safe
in a diesel engine, no power and blowing white smoke, indicates a bad turbo on the engine
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.
I was not aware that headgaskets were repairable. I have always replaced them with new gaskets. If you mean who replaces headgaskets, then that would be an engine mechanic.
There are two head gaskets in the V 8 1999 mercury mountaineer
If you are lucky the engine stalls. If you are unlucky the gasoline detonates, bending rods, blowing head gaskets, breaking pistons, etc. The injection system may also suffer.
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.
Between the head and the engine block.
no,you can damage engine gaskets
