No. He can tell you if it is blown but not if it is about to blow. Clay is 100% right. Remember that overheating can be caused by other problems or not performing routine maintainance-- which in turn may cause the head gasket to fail AND all steps should be taken to inspect/repair the coolant system. The head gasket failing or head warpage may be the result of the cooling system not working properly.

Take it to a mechanic ;-)
Your fan could be running continuously because your car is running hot. You should take your Explorer to a licensed mechanic.
Most likely this problem is your coil. If you are unable to change this yourself, you should take it to a mechanic as soon as you can.
The temperature should be 195 degrees.
You have to replace the piston rings and/ or the piston. Once you take the cylinder off, you should make sure nothing falls into the bottom end of the engine. If you are not familiar with this, then you should consult a mechanic.
Reflective Running Vests do keep you safe. I would suggest buying one if you plan on running in the evening especially. They do sell them at DIcks Sporting Goods.
Well, you should get it check by an expert mechanic. Though you have known some details about the car before buying it, there are still a lot of things that a mechanic would know that a car dealer wont. To get it running better and to prolong its life, you should consider checking everything and fixing/refilling/changing the things that needs to be done. And after that, maintain it properly to stay away from expensive mechanic works.
Get behind the exterior of the car and look, if there's a "V6" stamping at the near bottom right of the trunk lid, it's running on the 3.0 liter 6 cylinder engine (Engine model: 1MZ-FE). If not, it should be running on the standard 2.2 liter 4 cylinder engine (Engine model: 5S-FE).
There are two (2) torque screws that hold the cylinder itself onto the car. Remove both and the cylinder should fall out. (this is the hard way) Remove one (1) Torque screw, bottom. Then turn the key to the ON position (not running) and then press the tab that holds the cylinder in and the cylinder itself should fall out. (this is the easy way)
I have a 99 Toyota RAV4 and my ASA certified mechanic told me to change it every 100,000 miles.
Running shoes are awesome, especially if you're wanting to get serious about running. You should look at Nike or Asics. Asics are probably the most comfortable that you'll get.
How much labor will cost a person in order to install a clutch slave cylinder on a 1998 S10 will depend upon how much labor charges are. It should take a mechanic no longer than 30 minutes in order to install the clutch slave cylinder.
Complete, running, with the 6 cylinder engine and ac, $1800.
Incumbents who should be replaced, especially if they have been there because of a family dynasty.
Code p0304 is a cylinder #3 misfire.
open the hood and look down on the left side and it should be right there on the top of the tranny it should have a L pecie with a line running from it
210 deg F, it should be directly verical on the engine temp gauge.
Clutches of these years are sometimes not adjustable. You need to check your fluid levels in your master cylinder. If you think your clutch is out of adjustment you should take it to a mechanic and let him check it out.
You should probably go to a mechanic, especially if you aren't very mechanically inclined. If you choose to do it yourself, then you should get an instruction book that is specified for your make and model of car.
There are a few safety rules one should follow when street running. One should run against the traffic so they are able to see approaching cars. One should be visible especially in poor light and don't have distractions like music.
To be a mechanic, you should have a certificate. To get most of these, you just have to pass a test.
You should always take your car to an auto mechanic. Repairing a car can be costly, lengthy and difficult. If you are not a mechanic, then I wouldn't recommend that you repair your own car.
