Yaw Ming Chia: hi. I got a Toyota Prius 2012, generation 3. in this car I don't see the radiotor cap, and i think the radiotor located just behind the condenser. can I do the test at the coolant reservoir cap area? thanks.

YeahWeRepTheSameSmartech: should of ran the test on a known good head gasket to see if that was a money grab product created by mechanics.

bill thompson: Scotty Kilmer you are nothing short of amazing I've never seen a kid like that that's pretty cool thanks a lot for showing us that and again you have great videos

invertedlow: Or you could just buy a subaru and know it's blown.

Julio Duran: Hello Scotty ive done this on my 76 buick Regal 350 engine with 350 transmission, fluid stood blue the 4 times i did this block test. smoke is coming out the tail pipe, i did notice the transmission is leaking, im thinking transmission fluid is leaking/ burning. ive done a compression test and a leak down test no major leaks .

Stavros Kalaitzakis: Hey skotty! I have a Nissan Pulsar N13 and it has a problem. The problem is that the coolant fluid overflows when i go for long trips. Does this show that i have a head gasket problem or not? Thanks

Sb Ni: Hi Scotty, I have a corroding steel coolant outflow pipe, no leaks or wetness but its rough looking on my 05' Fiat Panda. Should I replace it for a $51 part or leave it? The fear is it'll blow and boil the engine but as its steel it might look worse than it is?

Jann Goldberg: rev up your engine vroom vroom

Ze Lopes: were is placed the water pump from a freelander 2.0 di????

Leshaun Hayes: how do you replace a head gasket in a 98 ford taurus sho

Joshua Kincaid: can some help me out

Joshua Kincaid: I have a 99 kia sephia that the radiator went out in n the car got hot for a minute now it drags to start n backfires a lil bit not bad but it backfireing in exhaust

Richard1979hush: @Skotty Kilmer thank you so much for your videos. i think this will help because i have a car thats leaking in 3 places and its going to cost a lot to fix which im not going to pay.

Moto Guy: my truck doesnt have a cap like that the only cap is on the coolant return jug next to the radiator

Tom Kimmel: 2003 Chevy S10 2.2 RWD hair line crack in radiator, drove it for a week and then white smoke. got plugs and fuel pump fuse out turn over spit a little coolant out the 2nd from firewall plug hole. what's the odds of gasket vs warped head?

Danktitties: I drove my 88 escort without coolant for at least a few months, 70k on the odometer now, Got it at 50k. i started to have white clouds out my exhaust and stopped using my car immediately. I got oil changes and added power steering and brake fluids in those few months but completely forgot about my radiator and the coolant and now my engine is probably blown. What should i do scotty?

Mitch Quintana: Ah, the head gaskets are a extremely common issue w/ higher-mileage 80's series Land Cruisers. I have owned two of 'em. The first one I owned blew a head gasket. I sold it and bought a 4Runner. I missed my Land Cruiser so much that I had to get one again. I currently drive a '94 FJZ80.
