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

Blown head gaskets cannot be "fixed", they have to be replaced. If you are mechanically inclined and want to try and do it yourself, get a Hayne's or Chilton's repair manual for your vehicle to find everything on how to do it.

well i just did a head gasket job on my 1992 g30 full size van & it costed me about $185 for all the gaskets , oil & antifreeze

WATER. This indicates a blown head gasket. Damage has been done to the engine in the form of overheating and the head gasket(s) have blown. Water therefor has leaked into the oil. Replacing the head gaskets is the way to repair this motor.

By the phrase "blown head", I'm assuming you mean blown head gasket. Head gaskets are fairly cheap (around $50), but it's a lot of work to replace. If you are doing it yourself, plan on spending several hours on it. If you send it to a shop, it could be well over $1,000.

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

Hello: I have a 1991 Lincoln 3.8 I paid a non-dealer shop $535.00 to repair the rear head, only. This price included having the head sent out to be milled (required), and also new head bolts (also required)and all gaskets/parts.

This is done in stages. You first must take the head off and see which one has blown. If it was damaged badly it may need to be resurfaced. Then after it is you put the head back on with all new gaskets. It is best if you have a mechanic do this because there are a lot of variables to this work.

Your head gaskets are blown. sorry to be the barrer of bad news.

Remove the head, Grind it flat and replace it using a new gasket.

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

We had our Caravan repaired last year with a product called ThermaGasket. We have put 35000 miles on the vehicle without any problems!

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.

Blown head gasket or cracked head. The gasket is blown next to the cylinder. Repair immediately. Do not drive, as severe engine damage will occur. If it is a V6 or V8, replace both head gaskets.

does nanotechnology ( head gasket and block repair) fix blowen head gasket

First off you stop driving the vehicle immediately. Otherwise you will destroy the engine. If the repair shop is within a couple of miles from your home and the engine is not overheating drive it there for repair. If it is over a couple of miles have it towed. You will have to have the head/heads removed and the gaskets replaced. You may also have to have the head resurfaced or replaced. This is a major repair and is not cheap.

Head gaskets can't be repaired. If they fail they have to be replaced.

NOOnly use then as an emergency repair. For a permanent repair the head gasket must be replaced. I have been buying cars and vans that have blown head gaskets for myself at a reduced cost and I have had great success repairing them without disassembling the engine. Its very simple to use and is a permanent repair. It costs 20.00 and its added to the radiator. It mixes with antifreeze and does work if you follow the simple directions. My cousin has a garage and has been using this stuff. Its very hard to find and is not found in part store's if you want any email me kerisvery@aol.comSealed up a blown head gasket and cracked block.Thanks Carl Shilanskis1995 corsica 3.1 with a blown head gasket, 3k miles and so far so good. Hope its stays that way. Fred

blown motor .probably blown head gaskets or a cracked head with water on the cylinders causing hydraulic lock.

The 3.8 GM V6 is prone to blown intake gaskets much more than blown head gaskets. The blown intake gasket causes a loss of coolant which in turn causes overheating and a blown head gasket. The problem exists with most 2000 to 2003 vehicles equipped with the 3.8 Liter V6. There were defects in the upper intake manifold gasket, throttle body nuts, and the throttle body gasket.

Just like you would repair car engine was a blown head gasket. Take it apart and replaced the head gasket. Make sure and have the head checked for cracks and warpage.

As I have no idea what you mean by "MOT fail" and I cannot answer except to say that a blown head asset is very serious and you should stop driving this vehicle immediately. It is a major repair but easily repaired with new gaskets unless you continued to drive the car and ruin the engine.
