It will turn over as long as one if the cylinders is not filled with water. If that happens it will lock the motor up.

What is the difference between a cracked block and a blown head gasket?

A cracked block means that the engine itself is cracked. A blown head-gasket means that the gasket between the engine and the head has blown. Either can be caused by overheating the engine. When an engine overheats the head can warp causing the head-gasket to give out. In some engines the heat cracks the block. If the block is cracked, it's over. If the head-gasket is blown you can always machine the head surface and put it all back together.

How do you know head gasket is blown?

I usually hook up a pressure tester to the radiator for about 20 minutes or so...pull the spark plugs out then crank over the motor. If the head gasket is blown then antifreeze will usually have gotten into the cylinder that has the blown section of the head gasket. When you crank over the engine then antifreeze will squirt out of the cylinder with the antifreeze in it. Also smell the exhaust.. can you smell antifreeze in the exhaust. Is there white smoke coming out of the tailpipe ? That is also a sign of a bad head gasket. Finally. Does the car overheat after a short period of driving ? Yet another sign of a bad head gasket.

Does the heater have anything to do with a blown head gasket on a 1998 Oldsmobile Silhouette?

The heater generates heat by blowing air over a small radiator type device (heater core) under your dashboard. The device runs hot coolant through it continuously. If you have a blown head gasket, your coolant is being evaporated trough the firing chambers and tailpipe. When the coolant level is low due to evaporation, there is no water to flow through the heater core. Keep in mind if you are not certain that this is a blown head gasket, these models were notorious for a defective lower manifold gasket leak that caused it to lose coolant the same way a head gasket would.

How do iknow if you need to replacea head or just the gasket on a 95 chvy silverado and about how much will it cost at a mechsnic?

a blown head gasket usually results in over-heating. is your coolant needing to be topped of regularly and there is no sign of a leak on the ground? the coolant is leaking into the engine oil. check your dipstick, if there is coolant in the oil then you have a blown head gasket. the oil will appear a milky brown, like creamed coffee, not the usual dark color. typically when a head gasket is changed it is a good idea to have the head redecked to ensure that there is no warpage. there is no way to tell without removing the head. price will vary depending on location, but around here i would think a head gasket job would run upwards of $1500, not inc. a new head.

Can a blown head gasket cause a car to overheat?

Yes it can if the coolant has mixed with the oil in the engine from the head gasket being damaged then it will starve the engine of cooling material to flow around the cylinders and will over heat and damage the engine more usually than just a head gasket
