How To Tell If Your Head Gasket Is Blown




What do you think about this video?

Razor Blade: nice

Kayla Brown: question

Kayla Brown: we thought we had a bad thermostat, then replaced it the water pump and timing in our 04 Honda civic. we got multiple opinions and a pressure test nothing came back about our gasket being bad and the pressure test was normal. we got the system burped and it ran fine for almost 3 days and then it started over heating again, so we took it back to the shop that told us it was all fine the first time. now they're telling us the head is blown and the radiator which was 300 dollars new just a few months ago. so can you tell me with all the test we have ran and everything is it more possible they did something that blew our gasket or that we bought it that way?

Santi U Moya: Thank You Scotty for your awesome videos , they've been very helpful to me over the years I've been able to do repairs on my cars, things that I would never imagined I could do.

ALOOSH M.: nice funny way to give information.. I watch each second.. good luck..

Alan Barth: I have 1989 e250 just check my oil today has slight milk looking substance on the tip of the dip stick. antifreeze I just change 1 week ago, still looks new, bright green. oil just be normal bc it got super cold out here?

Mary Tidwell: I have a 1998 cavalier. the 15 degree monday a week ago busted 5 inch crack in it. we got replacement radiator and all hoses, and another reservoir for back up. Put the replacement radiator in---no inside heat and now dripping trans fluid from bottom hose near radiator. Also put new thermostat in but hits steaming quickly with it in. to even be able to drive around town have to leave thermostat out!! What could be the problem? tired of buying all this antifreeze, its not cheap!!!

MEOW MEOW: Will this kit work with a car that doesn't have a radiator cap?

David's Favorite Videos: Easier to look at the exhaust for oily water, look at the plugs, inspect the coolant for oily substance.

Cheapguitarguy: Any ideas why my 99 si civic smells like oil inside the car? It only happens when I'm stopped. The car only has 50,800 original miles on it...

mario agostini: smart ,,,,

denis torres: You're all a mad scientist I like thanks for you time really help

Theodore W. Farcasin: Scotty, great videos. I've got an 03 PT Cruiser, Coolant leak, right below juncture of connect pipe from lower radiator into block, replaced the connection pipe. Replaced thermostat, and coolant still leaks. Taken car back 4 times, they still can't find the leak - any thoughts - pressure test?

jacky Parker: Were do you get tester kit from and how much ?

Blu Smith: I have a 2004 mercury sable just brought it a few days before my b-day 11/23/2015 been acting crazy some so last month it went out due to a broken belt so the belt got change 3 days ago car wouldn't start so we brought a new battery and put inafreeze in it so now the car smoking white some say it might be the water pump or the gasket please someone who has this problem or know what going on please give me some answer ASAP

ziggy72170: (I need advice)..I have a 1996 Toyota Tacoma 4cly with 250,000 miles ,.. Every month i notice i lose about 12 ounces of Radiator fluid .. On initial start-up the truck runs ruff ( like a bad spark plug, or something). But after one minute the truck runs fine ... I also notice a heavier white exhaust coming from my tail-pipe, for the first five minutes of driving.... Understand I've been driving this truck for over a year under these conditions .. I can't figure out whats wrong ... :(

Brandon Rodriguez: Hey Scotty I'm interested in buying the truck in the video a 1996 Toyota Land Cruiser what should I look out for when inspecting the truck.
