what are you asking here? PLease be more specific ...like - how do I know if my head gasket is blown, or what do I do about a blown head gasket ......


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 a blown head gasket. An engine with a blown head gasket usually loses performance and runs poorly or not at all.




perform a pressure test on the cylinders. if they don't hold pressure it's a blown head gasket



my head gasket was blown and it had water in the oil which made the oil look a milky color


Sure it will start with a blown head gasket. But, if you continue to run this engine with a blown head gasket you will destroy the engine.


No it will not. The only thing that will fix a blown head gasket is to replace the gasket.



Yes, I blown head gasket will definitely effect the emissions.


No, a normal tune up cannot cause a blown head gasket. A blown head gasket normally is caused by an engine overheating or by a defect in the gasket or head. If it happened right after a tune-up that is just a coincidence.


No. You can have the head gasket replaced. This is unless you kept driving the car with a blown head gasket and have totally destroyed the engine.


It is not possible to repair the actual head gasket. Repair of a blown head gasket is to replace the gasket.


It does not matter. If one is blown on a V6 or V8 then you need to replace them both.

No, the only permanent fix for a blown head gasket is to replace it.


You cannot repair a blown head gasket, you must remove the heads and replace the gasket.


remove head and replace gasket :)


If you have a blown head gasket. you pour it in the radiator and it's suppose to fix your blown head gasket. I've never used it so i don't know if it actually works


If you remove the head then of course you replace the head gasket.Where can you get sodium silicate to fix a blown head gasket?Know that adding sodium silicate to an engine is only a temporary fix for a blown head gasket and will not permantly fix the problem. The only permanent fix is to replace the head gasket. I would never add any head gasket fix material to any engine.


Blown head gasket or cracked head or both are a good bet.


The only repair for a blown head gasket is to replace the gasket.


You will not know until your remove the head. You have to remove the head in order to replace the gasket and once you have the head removed have it magna fluxed at a machine shop. That will reveal any cracks.
