Railbox200: how accurate are these test?
Tomlin James: or since its a Toyota you should just go head at 100,000 miles and replace
them since that is usually when they fail.
ksktrash: Awesome. Thanks a lot. Cheers
Ben Connor: This guy's great.
joaquin sierralta: isnt enough with only 1 tube?...
Sami Hamid: Hey Scotty, have a 95 Civic EX here. After various overheating issues I
have replaced nearly everything involving the cooling system (cost me
little to nothing in money so not a major loss). New OEM rad cap, upper and
lower rad hoses, OEM thermostat (there wasn't one originally in the engine
when i first bought it HA) and new overflow bottle. slowing running out of
option as to why im overheating.
most of the time the needle goes up only in traffic after a while, so i
wanna point towards the fan. but the fan turns on when the needle rises up
a little (like midway), and then it drops back down to normal. also the
overflow bottle gets past the max line alot and the rad is almost bone dry
sometimes when i go to check the next day. so i cant believe that its only
a fan issue. ive bled the system several times, and for the most part the
car doesn't overheat much but after past experiences its a little
concerning to see that temp needle go up past normal.
kounsucks: Is replacing the head gasket expensive?
Alex Chevez: Scotty please help me I want to know how to calibrate. The valves in my
chevy astro 2000 4.3 vortex engine because have some noise at the passenger

Sean Gomez: Hi I have a 1997 cadillac catera and it blows out alot of smoke out of the
exhaust. People tell me it needs head repair but i dont know. the car runs
great except when it starts heating up it blows alot of smoke everytime i
accelerate. When i dont accelerate its still blows smoke but less than when
i accelerate. when its cold theres no smoke. What should i do?
movieguy73: why does the tester have two stages?
Marco C.: Scotty, so i bought one of these and tested it, let the car run for about 2
minutes, and it turned blue-green (more blue than green), and its on a

David Mootoo: Hi, I have a 1998 Plymouth Neon 2.0L DOHC (thank you for your sympathy) and
my diagnostic said "Cylinder 1 misfire" and the car does not smoke in any
way at all. I tried doing the steps in your video, but I was unable to
change the coils because of the way the system is made up. Also, just like
in the video, the 1st spark plug is really bad, but the rest of them are in
relatively good condition. Any suggestions on how to proceed? I live in the
Caribbean and my specimen is a left hand drive bone-stock configuration
originally from Canada (if that helps). Thanks...

Zach Pascoe: Scotty I've got a question for you. I have oil in my radiator so i assumed
a blown head gasket and bought one testers. I performed the test twice and
each time was a negative. Is it possible if the leak is small enough this
test can miss it or can something else cause oil in the radiator?
Kaio Rafael: Hi Scotty, I am not English native speaker and I wonder what the heck you
say in the beginning of all your videos: "...... your engines". I do not
understand the beginning of the sentence. Thank you. :D

rodeo 2.8 turbo diesel (it's a Isuzu 4jb1 engine) it's done about 275,000ks
awesome car only major thing I've done to it is a injector plump reco! But
I noticed from my head gasket down I have oil leaking from it (defently not
tappet cover gasket) I degreased it a few weeks ago and notice it's leaking
again it's not major at the moment not to the Point where it's dripping on
the ground or a noticeable change on the dip stick. But my point is would
it be my head gasket or somthing going on with the head it self?
Thanks for you're time!! :)

Sadistic Atheist: HELP! i have a 1995 Chevrolet camaro. I've had my engine re-build about a
year ago and now every time i start my car, smoke comes out from the
exhaust, i don't know if its blue or white (i'm colorblind). But, It goes

Matt Orourke: Where are you located?
Francis V: I did this test 3 times for about 5 minutes each and the fluid stayed blue
each time, but there was a decent amount of oil in the radiator when I
siphoned some of the coolant for the test. Should I be worried/perform
another test? The car was a 1991 Mazda Miata.
Devonte Swope: We're can I get this tester from?
mark steagall: why buy this test kit,if you have bubbles blowing fluid out the radiator
overflow tube ,then you have a blown head gasket
