How To Tell If Your Head Gasket Is Blown




What do you think about this video?

Alpha Diallo: What kind of Toyota is that???

TexanOffroads: Would lower compression also be a sign of a blown Head Gasket?

Andy Declerck: Where do I get one of those kits from

ivan pechkin: What if I don't have a radiator cap, only an expansion tank...Can I do this test on expansion tank?

ETDaXtraTerrestrial: Can I use this on a degas bottle. I have no radiator cap. It's a 00' 5.4L Expedition XLT 4x4. I'm pretty sure it's the head gaskets but want to make sure. I have the "vanilla pudding" on the oil cap. Little power when I accelerate. Recurring misfire in cyl #1. Rough idle that "breathes". Thanks in advance.

Rich hobo: hey scotty can you help me, well i had got a car with thick white smoke and i thought that it was the head gasket so i replaced the head gasket on my 350z wich is vary hard to do, for me lol but i just stated the car up again and it smokes just as bad as it did before i hope its not the block, the car has been sitting for a year or so before i got it so it might have bad gas would that make thick white smoke too thanks you so much

Amable Delcastillo: Scotty where can o buy this tester at?

Bobby: Hey!
I have a 2011 Mini Cooper S Clubman
50/50 of the time when i crank up I get a cloud of white smoke. I can't tell if it is coming out when I drive, but when I'm idling, its pretty clear.

I can confirm my antifreeze level is maintaining. I don't see any other fluid leaks other than the AC. My oil seems burn through pretty quick though. I changed my oil last week and I am still getting the smoke on startup. Performance doesn't appears to be lacking that much.

Do you think this could be head gasket or PCV Valve related? Or any other ideas?
I have a new set of spark plugs (needs it anyway) and a compression tester coming soon.

Aspidalspore99: Hey scotty i have a 2002 grand am gt 3400 sfi v6 today when i was driving it and parked it and coolant came out of the over flow and it made a gargling sound. The water pump is ok and i recently changed the thermostat. I heard it could be the head gasket. But there isn't any milky color on the oil dipstick and also it isn't blowing hot air now

Jan Bojarski: here's a tip how to check for blown headgasket without that tool (for example if you can't get one in the place where you live); if it smells of burned rubber or the oil cap has that buttery paste on its bottom it means that you have a headgasket leak, though these symptoms will be showing after a while when the engine will be in a very bad condition, and then it usually requires much more work on it.

Geoff Dick: About how much coolant to remove?

INKJAX: yup.. good test... now, what if its a block leak ? youre still screwed...

King David: You sound like a Toyota man. Before you start the engine remove the cap off the radiator, soon you will see any problem, I hate old school. Too smart and simple, love your work.

Schools: Learn how to get phlebotomy training in California! The job pays decent money for the amount of schools needed to graduate.
