Head Gaskets and Valve Covers
1982-1994 Chevy Cavaliers
Should the vehicle smoke when replacing a head gasket on break in?
Only until the exhaust system has burned out the contaminates
that was there before the job started, I would say aprox 30 to 60
minutes. If it continues longer than that I would suspect the
gasket was installed improperly or the head is cracked.
Looking at the head gasket how do i know it is blown?

Asked in Cars & Vehicles, Thermostats
In what order does the thermostat and gasket go?
The thermostat goes in the recess of the manifold . The gasket should be glued to the thermostat housing. Silicone sealer makes a metal surface slippery, so if used, should be done sparingly. Let the two adhere and install the housing to the intake. Do not over tighten as a bolt could possibily break. BE SURE THE SURFACE IS CLEAN of the old gasket.

Asked in Ford Windstar
Air bubbles in cooling system ford windstar 2000?
Air bubbles in the cooling systems usually means that the head gasket has gone out. As with most auto mobiles, air in the cooling system means exhaust is getting into the cooling system through a break in the head gasket. A break has probably occurred between the cylinder ring on the gasket and on the pressure stoke is passing through to the water port in the block at the top of the cylinder between the head and the cylinder indicating a break has occurred in the gasket.
