How do you know if you've blown a head gasket on a 97 Toyota Camry 4 cylinder?
If you see a lot of white smoke coming out of the muffler , that is the sign.
What does it mean when a 1996 Toyota Camry shakes a lot when driving and white smoke comes out the tailpipe at start up?
There are several possible indications of a blown head gasket: If the head gasket is blown between adjacent cylinders there will be poor or no compression in either cylinder. Poor compression in any cylinder can be caused by a blown head gasket. That condition can also be caused by a burned valve or piston. Coolant in the crank case can be caused by a blown head gasket. Compression in the coolant can be caused by…
What could cause a lotwhite smoke to come from the muffler of your 2002 Toyota Camry Mainly when you first start the car?
White smoke is normally water. Check the radiator fluid. If it dissapears you probably have a blown cylinder head gasket or a crack in the cylinder head. If you are lucky it can be sealed with wondaweld or similar product. I had the same problem on my Opel Omega 2 years ago and fixed it with Wondaweld.
Hey David==It differes greatly between different areas of the country. Call a couple of local shops and get estimates. goodluckJoe My 1995 Camry blew a head gasket recently. I asked a Toyota dealer who quoted me $800. A couple of local shops told me $700. This does not include an extra $100 or so if the head is warped and needs to be resurfaced. Hope this helped.
A blown gasket can be repaired by replacing the gasket...if you are talking about the head gasket, then you have to remove the cylinder head from the engine block and replace the gasket that is inbetween them. Cracked heads generally have to be replaced because they are made of aluminum which cannot be repaired permanently once it is cracked.
Toyota Camry 2.2 4-cylinder engine vibratesand looses coolant. there is is also high pressure in the cooling system which causes it to leak out?
Suggest blown head gasket with coolant leaking into one cylinder. Check colour of oil. If emulsified (mucky brown) then definite leak. Also, remove HT leads one by one to identify whether all cylinders are firing. If one is not firing, remove spark plug, then remove all other HT leads and turn engine over. You may find that coolant shoots out of the cylinder, indicating leak into that cylinder.
Heavy white smokes usually indicates a blown head gasket. You need to check compression for all cylinders to double check. Also monitor the coolant level, if it drops down, you definitely have a leak. If the compression test fails, it means that the leak is internal you have to replace the head gasket.
