jazzycarlos101: Great video scotty i have a question for you. Lets say the head gasket is blown, in your expertise would you recommend replacing the head gasket or get a new engine for the same price it would be to fix the head gasket?

Keith Newton: But we do not have cars with radiator caps we have expansion tanks does it work the same ?

archangele1: When ever I have experienced a bad head gasket the first thing I noticed was that I was loosing antifreeze. Then as things got worse, the car would start to run too hot and occasionally over heat. When the car was cold, I would remove the radiator cap and then start the engine. Every time I had a bad head gasket, the coolant, once circulating, would look as if someone dropped a 'fizzy' in the radiator with all those bubbles. Also, the radiator would quickly start puking out antifreeze. But, I would imagine this test Scotty has could show even very small leaks which may go unnoticed initially. Where I saw the most blown head gaskets was with certain cars that had iron blocks and aluminum heads. Bad news. Dissimilar metals with gaskets between them are a recipe for leaks.

Nope Nope: Yeah the test is simple but fixing the problem isnt
