I had my Lexus GS300 timing belt replaced by dealer at 110K miles including a new head gasket. After three years at 145K the head gasket was blown, and it's obviously the dealer didn't do a good job to install and torqued it properly. Defective head. Never torqued properly at installation. Ran the car for a long period of time with little or no coolant/oil.
Let the engine overheat will normally blow the head gasket.
Cracked head or bad head gasket.
No, head gaskets usually blow because the engine overheated or there was a defect in the gasket or head during production.
Anytime the engine overheats you have the possibility of blowing the head gasket.
most probable cause would be over heating
A head gasket can blow on any thing.
sounds like it might be head gasket or intake gasket
blow head gasket
If it was repaired before head might have been warped and wasn't checked, poor quality gasket and or incorrect torque values. A warped head won't seal no matter what you do.
It is a good idea, most the time you blow a head gasket the head will be warped.
Yes, a busted head gasket might stall your car if the gasket causes the car to overheat. This can actually blow the heads and cripple the car completely.
You pull the head off and change the head gasket. There is no treatment for a blow gasket, exept changing it. Its a pretty huge job I would suggest getting it at the garage and get a quote.
should you drain oil in the car if the head gasket is blow
Anything that causes the engine to run hot, like a faulty thermostat, can cause the head gasket to blow. also say a coolant hose ruptures, all the coolant is then drained from the radiator and the engine is then essentially running with no way to cool down, gasket blows. there are many ways for the engine to run hot, but it is the main reason a head gasket would blow out.
A head gasket joins that cylinder head with the cylinder block. It separated the oil and the coolant passages. If the two mix, the head gasket will "blow" soon.
No, the type air filter you use will have no detrimental effect on the head gasket. Head gaskets normally blow due to engine overheating.
Yes it can, my head gasket blew on by truck just a little causing oil to enter the cylinder chamber. Once I did an oil change it would get black within the next couple of days, that is a definate sign of blow by.
Normally they blow due to engine overheating. They can sometimes blow for no apparent reason.
You can blow a head gasket or the head can crack or be warped.
yes it does when u blow the head gasket the oil mixes with the water
possibly blown head gasket
If you are referring to the head gasket it can blow easily if the engine overheats. Unless there is a factory defect this is usually why head gaskets blow and mileage on the engine is not a factor.
Yes, if you're unlucky.
the blown head gasket would make it over heat. but it wouldn't cause the heater to blow cold, it should actually blow hot if that is wat happened
