How can you tell if the head gasket is blown on a 1998 Saturn and is there a chance the head gasket is blown if it keeps overheating but otherwise runs perfectly?

The easiest way to see if a head gasket is blown is to check the oil, if it is light brown and milky looking then the head gasket is blown.

My 1998 Saturn would always overheat. I had replaced the radiator twice and all of the hoses but it continued to happen. The people at Saturn did not know the problem. I brought it to a raditor place and the replaced the gauge that reads the temperature and fixed the problem. The gauge was reading at a much lower temperature than the car really was so the fan would not turn on to cool down the car causing it to overheat. This might be your problem.

There is a chemical that can be added to the coolant that will expose exhaust fumes. The head gasket may be fine, but overheating will endanger it.

overheating could also be caused by a bad engine coolant temperature sensor, or a bad thermostat, possibly even a bad PCM.

Look at your thermometer. Or you can check for steam or smoke coming from the engine. Look and see how much coolant you have. And basically you can tell if it is overheating just by putting your hand by the engine after you drive it for a while. if it is abnormally hot, pretty good chance it is overheating.

An Xbox360 can over heat if you don't turn it off for a few days.(About 50)

Yes. All people deserve a chance. To think otherwise would be cold and heartless.

well first off i wound't play games a bunch of hours a day unless it's brand new. also keep it in a spot where it has enough space to release the heat from the vents behind the wii. note that the wii has a lower chance of failing then the xbox 360 and ps3 so you really don't need to worry about your wii overheating. however, has your wii gets older, it has a better chance of overheating but just clean the vents with a dildo and the stick your wii in a woman's vagina.

Yes she would and you have to give her the chance to give her consent or not. Otherwise you can be arrested.

It is very possible that your turtle could give your baby skink a fatal bite. Or they may get along perfectly fine, it is a chance thing. Personally, I wouldn't chance some thing happening.

Clearly, the answer is maybe. If you have a chance with Angelina Jolie, then you might want to think about it. Otherwise, yes, you should.

Whether something is correct or not depends on context. "I was given a second chance along with my friend Alfie." is a perfectly correct English sentence containing the words "chance along". That doesn't mean that any use of those words will be correct. You need to give a sample sentence.
