lets assume that all tests have been done. ie. presence of emissions in the cooling system. cylinder leak down indicates hi leakage into cooling system ect. if these tests prove these theorys then cylinder head service will be needed. further testing of the head will need to be done after removal to determine the cause. however lets keep it simple.is there exessive consumtion of coolant? humidity and cold temperatures can cause this sign of milky oil in the cap and is no indication of falty or "broken" car.

Two steps shold be followed with all suzuki products: 1. Drive car into the largest body of water you can find. 2. Buy a Honda or Toyota.

Ta dum ching! Thank you, thank you I got a million of em....

But seriously...you need to consider that loss of power and address it alone. If the car is not overheating, then ignore the goo in the cap. Certain climates are worse for this than others. Try to fix the drivability problem first, and it will lead you back to the head if its bad.

Sounds like all the previous answers are possible. However, if you get to removing the cylinder head it is always worth getting it pressure checked as these heads do have a tendancy for going porous due to rubbish grade aluminum being used in the casting process. this gives the same symptoms as a failed head gasket. they can be welded as a repair, but may well end up in the cylinder head needing replacement.

1997 dodge caravan the transmission is gone should you have it rebuilt or replaced which is least expensive?

it's cheaper in the short run to have it rebuilt. but if the van is in excellent condition and you plan to keep it for a few more years, i'd replace it. i had mine replaced at a dealer for about $2000 at around 115K miles and it's guaranteed for 3yr/36K miles. I think the rebuilt was about $1500 with a 1 yr/12K miles. I'm now at 165,000 miles. knock on wood.
