The sound of a in the process of failing all together head gasket on the CRX I own. The rattle you hear is the silencer pipe in the muffler because it is running so rough, in Bad Newz the cops will pull you for anything they think is "LOUD" sorry. Looks like I've got work to do.

Blown Head Gasket Saab 9-3?! Start Up With LOTS of Smoke
Well a lot of you probably remember the 2000 Saab 9-3 Hatch back that we had at the dealership a couple of months ago. Well something happened to the engine to where it just billows an un natural amount of pure white smoke! They brought it back so we can get it fixed for them. In this video I try and assess what's going on and see if you all have any suggestions on what it could be before we send it to the shop. Dad also pulls it around and sees for him self. we're thinking it's a head gasket and maybe a motor mount or a tranny mount. Post below what you guys think it is and I'll let you all know when we find out. You will see what I mean and how bad this thing is haha, enjoy!
Bad head gasket symptoms, Head gasget bad? Easy way to check- Chevy Uplander
This is an Easy way to check for bad head gasket(s).
This video shows Co2 gases entering a vehicles cooling system due to bad head gaskets.
This is what can happen when you do not change your vehicles Antifreeze every 2 years with composite head gaskets.
The other problem I have seen is that with steel layered head gaskets the cylinder head looses it seal to the engine block over time and starts leaking between the layers.
I have seen some vehicles with as low as 32,000 miles a lot of vehicle around 80-100,000.
Probable cause two different metals (aluminum heads on a steel engine block) and two different rates of expansion and contraction.
Some symptoms can be thermostat, misfire and 02 sensor codes, bubbles in cooling system, heating problems, oil slime in coolant tank and or radiator, low coolant levels, leaking, split or blown out radiators, leaking water pumps, intake gaskets leaking oil and or antifreeze, catalytic converters that are inefficient or clogged, oxygen sensors that quit working properly and spark plugs that are coolant fouled. If the problem has gone on for long period of time and the gasket(s) is deteriorated enough and the antifreeze is now entering the combustion chamber, then you might have other symptoms of white smoke out the Exhaust and antifreeze mixed in with your oil.
Dealers used to say Maintenance Free, Change your Antifreeze every 5 years or 150,000 miles. Now they say 30,000 miles, which for most of us is about 2 years. Huge difference.
Be mindful of these symptoms and remember to Find and fix the cause not just the symptom.
This video is of a 2007 Chevy Uplander, 3.9 Liter with 52,181 miles.
Blown Head Gasket
A ford Falcon that had blown its head gasket. It also has a bod Exhaust which dumps the fumes inside the bumper. Was wondering how the car HASN'T Caught fire yet.
Suzuki Swift blown head gasket
I think the head gasket is blown because it's leaking compression to the radiator. It still doesn't appears to throw water through the muffler, but eventually it will if not corrected on time.
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.
1993 z24 3.1 blown head gasket
Prior to this i have only changed oil lol so i need some help in understand what i am seeing here and also what i need to do from this point on. I have the Felpro gasket kit. Thanks, Adam
Blown head gasket treatment
Blown head gasket is treated with Dura-Seal crack sealer. About 10 min idling at about 2000 rpm with Dura-Seal resulted in complete disapperance of white smoke, bubbling and overflow of coolant in the radiator in this case.
- currently, you can't buy it outside Korea
- silica, fibrous polymer, catalyst, stabilizer, and etc.
- it flows into cracked area and polymerize to make a seal
- normally about 1~2 years or more
- it can't be used with silicate containing coolants
- no guarantee
It stopped coolant leak. Thanks.
