Probably not. This repair can be done with out having to replace the engine, unless the leaking head gasket has caused other engine damage.

What will happen if the engine fan does not work on a 2002 Jeep Liberty?

If you do not get the engine fan fixed, you will suffer overheating problems. In the summer, should you take it on long drives, the Jeep will overheat, most likely causing gasket damage to either the valve cover gasket, head gasket, or oil pan gasket. It can also damage the hoses, the connection for the hoses, the thermostat gasket, the thermostat; And that's just for the cooling system. If you allow your vehicle to overheat, you can cause severe internal damage, the worst of which would cause you to have to buy a new engine.

Your 96 ford contour prone to overheating ive been told its blown head gasket does anybody have this problem before?

yes yes yes. I had to replace my engine the day after I bought it for a warped head, and a scored cylinder because of a head gasket leak that the dealer never fixed, then a year later i replaced the engine again for the same reason, once the head warps it cannot be fixed, only replaced. But usually by then its to late, and the rest of the engine is #@*@ed. Check the usual culprits, water pump, temperature sensors, gaskets to save your engine.

Losing antifreeze but no leaks under pressure have to add antifreeze to resivoir every three weeks because its empty. Had intake manifold gasket fixed last year.?

Could be a leaking head gasket - try running engine to normal operating temperature remove oil dipstick and let a drop fall onto hot part of engine - oil will smoke coolant will sizzle

What could be wrong with a 98 buick lesabre that keeps losing antifreeze from the radiator an found in the oil it also blows thick white smoke from the tailpipe?

You have a blown head gasket. Antifreeze that should be going through a hole in your gasket and then cooling the engine head is going into a cylinder. From there it is going out an exhaust pipe as steam. It is also getting into an oil drain hole and getting into the oil pan. It is inexpensive to get a head gasket fixed compared to the cost of having a blown engine replaced.

Why does your coolant leak?

Are you asking why is your coolant disappearing? If so, it can be a number of things. A blown head gasket, leaking water pump, radiator, heater core, hose, to name a few. If you can see no apparent leak after driving the vehicle then suspect a blown head gasket. As this can do serious damage to your engine, I suggest you have this fixed ASAP.

What does it mean when you have motor oil leaking into your coolant in a 1996 Saturn SC1 I'm about to drive from vermont to Florida with your car Help?

Blown head gasket. You better have this fixed before driving anywhere. Serious engine damage will occur if you continue to drive this car. I second the blown head gasket diagnosis -- classic symptoms.

Your check engine light is on white smoke smells burnt comes out of the muffler and the display lights go off?

What if your car engine had rough idle due to coolant entering the cylinders blown Head Gasket and you fixed the Gasket used Stop-Leak for repair but it still doesn't fire in all cylinders?

You cannot repair a blown head gasket with Stop-Leak. The head will have to be remove and a new gasket installed. Do not drive this car as serious engine damage will occur. I agree 100%. The head will have to come off and re-fitted with a new head gasket, and possibly exhaust and inlet gaskets as these tend to break if you have to remove the manifolds. Having the head "machine-skimmed" is also wise as it will ensure a gas tight seal between the engine block,head and gasket.I'm afraid that there is no way around this, if there were a bodge that could be done, I'd probably know about it!

How can you fix an blown head gasket on a 94 crown vic?

A blown head gasket on a 94 Ford Crown Vic is fixed by removing the cylinder head, cleaning the gasket surface, and installing a new gasket. The head gasket is extremely important as it prevents oil and water from mixing and contains the vehicle's combustion.
