Why does my 1999 corvette run hot you just had my head gaskets replaced you need help?
This Engine Has Aluminum Heads. They Should Have Been Tested For Cracks And Surfaced To Be Sure Of No Leaks Or Warpage. If The Engine Ran Hot & Blew Gaskets, You Could Have Craked Heads, Or More Simple A Thermostat Not Opening, Not Enough Coolant Flowing ( Radiator Stopping Up ) Weak Water Pump, Not Likely Though, It Would Leak. Run It Into A Radiator Shop. They Can Pressure Test It, To See If You Have A Leak( Internal Or Otherwise ) Also Your Fan Clutch May Be Bad===The Fan Is Bolted To It Then It Is Bolted To The Water Pump. It Works Like This, When The Engine Is Cold It Lets The Fan Not Run Very Fast So The Engine Will Get To Operating Temp. Faster Then When Engine Get Hotter It Will Not Engage And Run The Fan Faster Keeping The Engine Cooler. Well Heck. Radiator Shop Is Best Bet.

Theoretically, under normal operating conditions, and proper maintenence, intake manifold gaskets should last for the entire life of the vehicle. To my knowledge, there is no prescribed routine replacement interval for intake manifold gaskets. Of course anytime a head(s) is removed, then new gaskets should be used in reassembly.
Replaced head gaskets on a 1999 5.7 engine Chevrolet timing is correct starts but wont stay running?
Your 1999 Buick century keeps overheating you bought this car from an auction They said it needed head gaskets because of the overheating So you did that Then you changed the thermostat water pump and?
If you replaced the head gaskets, thermostat, and the water pump and it is still overheating then I would ask about the fan. If it is not the fan, then I would say that you have at least one bad head, if not two. But that is just a guess. A mechanic will pressure test the system and will be able to tell you more. Is the radiator restricted?
White smoke from exuast 92 Camry replaced head gaskets and did not fix problem please help car never overheated?
Basically you pull the head off and put the new gasket on, but this soirt of work is beyond the scope of an online forum. There's a lot of steps to doing this properly, so I suggest getting a shop manual if you are going to do it. I have replaced head gaskets on other vehicles, and none were what I'd call "easy". In addition to replacing the gasket, you should rebuild the head while…
Yes you should replace the thermostat now to insure trouble free operation afterwards, actually as long as the main bearings were not damaged from the intake leak, you should also replace the head gaskets at this time, use only felpro gaskets and you will have troublefree performance for years to come. These are good torquey engines, gm just went cheap on the gaskets when new
not to be rude but if you are asking how to do this dont even attempt it! if you get coolant on any of the internals by not completely removing the old gasket or over torquing you will throw a rod........ i will just tell u this.....scrape well, very well. if you know what you are doing. and if you dont know where the head gaskets are....take off the intake maifold.... 1993 fleetwood brougham......d-body yes…
The oil is milky in your 1996 olds cutlass supreme is it the head or manifold intake gasket the needs replaced?
It could be either one. However, it is well known that these years of V6 engines had weak intake manifold gaskets from the factory. You might just luck out and it'll be the intake gaskets. You could also do a compression and leak down test to check the head gaskets before tearing it that far down to only find out they were fine.
From 1996 to late 1999 There was a problem with the intake gasket design on the Vortec engines. They have sents redesigned the gasket and now it does not leak as often. Intake Gaskets leaking is a common problem. Now the only time you have a problem with the heads is when the engine is over heated, and I mean HOT. Then the heads warp and the head gaskets leak or blow. Chevy just don't…
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…
You just replaced the cylinder head gasket on your series 2A lightweight and it seems to be running OK but the oil has turned grey whats going on?
It sounds like coolant is getting in your oil. Recheck you intake manifold gasket.Hopefully the head gasket sealed up. Did you have the heads surfaced? Did you pressure test heads for leaks? When head gaskets go the heat can crack/warp cylinder heads.Mark. Also, make sure you buy original Rover gaskets, as many after market gaskets arn't up to the job. Rick.
