Head Gasket Check
Think you've got an overheating situation because of a blown head gasket?
Fill the cooling system with water (never open it hot!!!!) and remove all
the spark plugs. Reinstall the #1 spark plug and spin the engine over - if
the water level rises with each compression stroke, the gasket is blown.
You may see the water level go down due to water pump activity, but that
only means you're filling air pockets. Rising water followed by bubbles
tells the real tale. If the number 1 cylinder doesn't show anything, move
that same spark plug to cylinder number two and retest. If the head gasket
is blown and is heating up the water with leaking combustion gasses, you'll
see the water rising with each compression stroke. We tested cylinders 1,
2, and 3 on this engine before we got results. Be aware that head gaskets
can blow in several different ways and this is just one of them. Other
symptoms might be caused by a misfire that happens for a few seconds on
cold start only - if if does that, shut the engine off while it's misfiring
and remove all the spark plugs - if any of the plugs is covered with
coolant, the head gasket is leaking coolant into the cylinder, which is
fairly common on some engines. If one spark plug is very sooty and the rest
of them are clean, the injector may be leaking on that cylinder. Head
gaskets can also blow between two cylinders, which will cause low
compression on those to adjacent ones.
Ben's 1995 Dodge Neon Project
This is my 1995 dodge neon that I wrecked so I decided to do a school
project and fix my car at the same time. I decided to paint it two tone
Candy red on top and Metallic silver on the bottom and a black pin stripe
all the way around and I blacked out all the lights. thnxs

2000 Dodge Neon Head and Timing Belt - Part 2
This video includes the clips from part one butinlcudes the SOUND and a
SLIDE SHOW from the project.
Inspection - This is our brother Gregg's Car neon. The water pump seized
and blew the timing belt. We decided to take it all the way down to the
head because there was some question that a valve had bent as well. But
other than a TON of carbon, it turned out to be OK. more at
