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!

NEVER USE HEADGASKET REPAIR IN A BOTTLE ....IT'LL DO MORE BAD THAN GOOD...
A quick note about head warpage....depending on the cause of your head
gasket failure, you may need to have the head and/or block resurfaced at a
machine shop. Having this done is not always necessary but may be required
if one or both of your head gasket mating surfaces is out of the
manufactured specified range for head and block warpage. Accurately
measuring this using a precision straight edge and the feeler gauges as
shown in this video is a vital step and should not be overlooked.
1993 Honda Civic with Blown Head Gasket (long & hyped ver.)
Take a last shot at my 93 Civic Coupe before it gets donated. It blew the
head gasket last December and it's too expensive to fix. I left it out in
the freezing snow for a couple of months... and it starts! Sorry for acting
a bit hyper :p
blue devil head gasket sealant repairs a blown head gasket
A product called Blue Devil Head Gasket Sealant is added to the radiator
and is said to repair head gasket leaks.This product saved me ~2k +.With
their money back guarantee I had nothing to lose.Spent some time on
Saturday and Sunday doing the work and was driving on Monday.Can't say it
will fix all head gasket issues but i have nothing but accolades for this
product.All error codes were cleared.This product does not contain solids
as did products from the last century.Go to their website and follow the
directions instead of what is on the bottle.What you need to do is remove
as much glycol solution as you can,remove the thermostat,fill with
water,add the "Blue Devil",cap the radiator and circulate for 50
minutes.This solution will flash when it hits the hot spot(bad
gasket)leaving sodium silicate behind.In theory this is a permanent repair.
We shall see.
Update:3/20/10 After ~1100 miles it is still holding.Oil is clear with no
coolant and there is no coolant loss.
Update#2: 12/3/10 There is now 4k on the motor since adding BD.Just did the
second oil change.Added about 1/2 pint of coolant .Ready for winter.Still
going strong.No smoke or coolant loss issues.
Update #3: 3/14/11,85,000 miles,7,000 miles since "the" repair. The past
week resulted in coolant getting into the cylinders.There was no coolant in
the oil and the expansion tank was not bubbling.The vehicle was not smoking
like the last time,just a light vapor and coolant dripping from the weep
hole on the muffler.
Added a bottle of BD and yes it worked again.Anyone want to buy a truck ?
