Run a compression test to see if the cylinder is mechanically functioning properly.

Is changing head gaskets like renewing motor?

No, it is nothing like the scope of renewing the motor. - To do that you would have to fit new valves, have the heads re-ground, replace the main and rod bearings and re-ring the pistons (at least)


What is a big bore kit?

it is a kit that bores the piston to a larger cubic-centimeter (cc) size to increase power tremendously. it requires new pistons, rings, and gaskets.


Why does only 5 out of 6 pistons chambers combust in 96 ceira?

Combustion requires three things: air, fuel, and spark. Most likely, the cylinder is getting air. Next to check is spark. Check/replace the spark plug & plug wire. Make sure the coil pack is sending spark to that cylinder. If yes on all that, next to check/replace would be the fuel injector for that cylinder.


What is the difference between 1800cc and 2500cc engine?

The difference is in the size of the engine. Specifically in the intake and exhaust ports. The bore and stroke of the crank and pistons and the size of the combustion chambers.


How do you change pistons on a Mitsubishi gto 3000?

Call a mechanic. This is not an "at home" type of repair. To replace pistons, you must tear the entire engine down, and replace all gaskets and bearings. I assume you are thinking of lower compression pistons for a turbo build up. Don't bother. Buy a complete engine with the turbo and duct work from a wreck, if available. You could spend more trying to rebuild yours.

Does mixing water with oil make the oil less effective?

Yes, it could even make it completely ineffective. If it is in a car it can ruin gaskets, seals, or make your car overheat. Which can warp your the pistons in you car.


What happens in a car engine?

Well you have these Chambers with pistons inside, at the top theres a spark plug creating a spark and gas being injected in, and air forced in, igniting, and causing an explosion,, forcing the pistons down one by one turning the crankshaft, which turns other stuff then you wheels.


Would changing the pistons solve an oil problem?

Changing the pistons will NOT fix an oil problem UNLESS you have a hole in the piston, which would cause many more problems as well. Placing new rings on the pistons, along with honing the cylinder walls (which is necessary if you are replacing rings) WILL allow the cylinder to seal better, improving compression and stopping oil slipping past the oil ring. It would be wise to check valve guides and seals as well if you decide to change the rings.


After changing pads and master-cylinder front brakes are trying to lockup on a 1988 Surburban 4x4 What should be done next?

Check the calipers. If the calipers pistons are extended to far - this could cause the brakes to lock up. The pistons cannot be retracted.

Do you have to change all pistons if only 1 is bad?

I HAVE NEVER CHANGED PISTONS IN AN AUDI, BUT IN AMERICAN CARS YES AND WE HAVE HAD PLENTY OF BAD PISTONS AND WE DIDN'T ALWAYS CHANGE ALL OF THEM, ONLY THE ONES THAT NEEDED CHANGING. ANOTHER FACTOR IS BASED ON THE MILEAGE ON THAT (ENGINE). MY BEST GUESS IS ,IF THE ENGINE HAS LESS THAN 100K MILES CHANGE ONLY THE ONES THAT NEED CHANGING. UNLESS ITS MORE THAN HALF OF THE AMOUNT OF PISTONS IN THE ENGINE, CHANGE ONLY THE BAD ONES, IF YOU ARE DOING IT YOURSELF. A GARAGE MAY WANT TO REBUILD THE WHOLE ENGINE, MAINLY FOR WARRENTY PURPOSES. GOOD LUCK. I HOPE THIS HELP SOME.


Is there any way to clear antifreeze from top of pistons without disassembling engine when cylinder head gaskets leak?

Remove spark plugs and crank engine to blow coolant out. Put plugs back in and start engine. Pull inside garage to repair, or leave radiator cap loose and take to mechanic to replace gaskets if engine is not overheating too quickly to get it there.

If you are lucky the engine stalls. If you are unlucky the gasoline detonates, bending rods, blowing head gaskets, breaking pistons, etc. The injection system may also suffer.
