Could a bad donut gasket be responsive for a lack of power and bad fuel economy?

All a donut gasket does is provide a seal between your exhaust and your manifold. If anything you may get better mileage because there is less restriction on your exhaust. The bad part is you may get some fumes in the passenger area. ==Another Answer== A bad donut gasket could in fact cause these symptoms. It will allow excess oxygen into the exhaust stream, tricking the oxygen sensor into thinking the engine is running lean, making it add fuel and make the engine run rich. This will hurt fuel economy and power.

Can you help you just got a alpha-sports kaliber ls scooter and you want to make it go faster without buying upgrade parts what can you do?

If you take off the exhaust from the manifold theres usaully a washer there . By taking that washer off you are letting more gases escape therefore making it go faster but make sure that you dont accidently remove the gasket aswell . The gasket is the black rubber piece that stops the exhaust from letting the gases out from where it is connected to the engine . If you do you will here the engine alot more and it is not googd for the exhaust and the engine metal to be touching .

Why is my 97 Camry making a loud noise whenever I step on the gas?

The most likely cause is an exhaust leak or a cracked exhaust manifold. While it is also possible that there is a problem with the Camry's catalytic converter, check to see if there are any leaks from the exhaust or any problems with the muffler first.

What is the difference between white smoke and steam coming out the tailpipe?

You will see steam come from the tailpipe in the winter which is caused by the hot exhaust coming from the engine making contact with the cold metal in the exhaust system. This is normal and no cause for alarm. However if the white smoke does not dissipate almost instantly and seems to continue you may have a blown head gasket. If the exhaust smells sweet you almost certainly have a problem and the gasket is blown. A blown gasket will destroy the engine in time. If you are not sure have it looked at by a professional.

Why is there a lot of exhaust noise upon acceleration on a 2005 Grand Cherokee after it warms up?

check your engine for a cracked manifold (covering of the engine parts and cylinders. also look for any exhaust leaks. it sounds like the exhaust noise isn't making it to the muffler as it should and instead is coming from the engine directly.

How do you replace the O2 sensor on a 96 Saturn SC2?

Cut the wire, unscrew the old oxygen sensor then replace it with the new one and finally, connect the new wire, making certain that you follow the manufacturers wiring diagram. To find the oxygen sensor, look at the exhaust manifold, then follow it down to where the manifold feeds into the headpipe. The oxygen sensor is the part that screws into the exhaust and has a wire connected to it.

What does milky looking oil in engine with white steam from coming exhaust mean?

theres a very good chance that the engine has a blown head gasket. what is happening is the water cooling the engine is escaping past the head gasket & into the engine, mixing with the oil making it milky coloured. the water is also escaping into the cylinders, making the steam come from your exhaust, you may also have trouble when turning the engine over, with water building up in the cylinders when cooling down.

How do you fix a blown head gasket on a 1999 Chevy Lumina?

You have to remove the following: 1. Throttle body and breather 2. Alternator 3. Power steering pump (leaving the hoses attached). 4. Air Conditioning Compressor 5. Top engine mounting brackets. 6. The Exhaust cross over pipe. 7. Spark plug wires. 8. Ignition coil 9. Upper intake 10. Fuel injector assembly 11. Lower intake 12. rocker arms and rods (making sure to keep them in order). 13 remove the heads. (note on the rear head you do not have to disconnect the exhaust manifold from the exhaust system, simply place a jack under tail pipe next to the head and lift it slightly and then slide the head gasket in. hope this helps.

Sometimes coolant blows all over under the hood when an engine overheats. Try to find out where the leak is comming from before making any assumptions.

Why should a leaking valve cover gasket be repaired for a 1996 Toyota Avalon?

Losing oil means less of it to lubricate the valve train that the cover covers. If it leaks enough, it will reduce oil volume enough to starve other compenents. It means oil dripping down, maybe onto the exhaust manifold, where it burns and makes a bad odor and maybe a fire hazard. It drips onto the garage floor or pavement, making an unsightly potential slip hazard and pollutes groundwater.

Is it an exhaust leak if your car sounds like it is having a hard time running - kind of sputtering - under the hood right after you start the engine but quits after minutes in your 2004 Ford Escape?

An exhaust leak would not stop after a few minutes. Sounds like you have a choke problem.**Alternative answer**I took my Escape in for a similar problem and it turns out that the exhaust manifold had cracked and it was making the noise you describe as the exhaust was escaping through the crack. It goes away after the metal gets hot and expands, temporarily sealing the crack. Quoted cost to fix is $1800. yikes.

What can damage an oil filter gasket?

Want to buy venture What should you look for in defects?

check the mileage. at 100,000 miles, you preety much need an engine overhaul. Before 100,000 miles, you would want to make sure that the manifold intake gasket has been upgraded/replaced. and that you have had an honest mechanic do a FULL tune-up. Many mechanics only change the front 3 spark plugs cause it's a pain to get to the back ones. The manifold intake gasket will help with making sure that your van isn't leaking coolant. You'll also want to watch out for defective rack/pinion/bushings.
