David Miranda: Hello! I'm trying to diagnose if my head gasket is blown or not, I don't have access to the kit you describe in your video "How to tell if your head gasket is blown (http://youtu.be/QA7KVQq9vKA)". Can a compression test be conclusive too about the head gasket? Thanks...

mike mulligan: I have bubbles coming out of my coolant overflow tank I'm really scared cause the last time that happened I had a blown headgasket. Could It be air escaping from the coolant system or water just getting hot and boiling?

Rudy Cadena: So i have a 1987 nissan d21 pickup, and i just replace the head gasket... had the head machined before re installing... still getting alot of white smoke from the tail pipe and running poorly when accelerating... any ideas would be helpful... thank you...

Randall Cheney: Hey, would this test come back positive if the intake manifold gasket was failed?

mark shatto: Hey Scotty, Been watching your vids for awhile and find them very helpful. Finally decided to subscribe to your site because of that. So thank you for being helpful! Can you direct me to one of your vids related to a chev astro van w/ 3 L engine. Driver of Van was going up incline in mountains, high rpm, into passing gear when it blew something and spilled a bunch of coolant.. Towed to house, sat there a few months. Got curious one day, started it up. It actually started and did some pretty bad knockin, but continued to run for about 5 mins before I shut it down. Rod thrown is my guess. So, what vid can you refer me to? Thanks in advance! ~Mark~ 

Michael Caceres: Scotty,I've a Chevrolet Ventura 2001, in the lower intake manifold where the cooling temperature sensor ( thread) is a hair line crack, how can you fix without to take out the intake manifold,thank you.

Rhonda Hernandez: I have a 2003 for expidition my oil cap is milky but the dip stuck is clean wat can it be 

TheReal SirKronik: Should the tester kit be air tight when doing the test? I did that and sucked up coolant even after draining some out. Maybe I need to drain more out? Love your videos btw.

MyAccountBitch: That's a $100 kit. Is there a cheaper way that might be as accurate and not extremely difficult?

Gervacio Artigas: You are good man very good thanks for all the knowledge

fukkever1: My 2010 camaro is leaking the coolant, could this be the problem? 

Kristen Wagner: hi, I have a 96 Hyundai Accent GLS, 1.3L. It was running fine till the last week. Then I saw a lot of smoke coming out from the tail pipe with some water drops too. Smoke gets worse when I am reversing the car or may be its the time I do look in rear view mirror. I took it to mechanic. He said its some oil burning. Then he said its not a gasket issue. But I am not satisfied as the car does not heat up. and the coolant level is normal. If it is oil burning, then what to do? 

Raze Johnson: My 1980 Monte Carlo is shooting black water like stuff out the exhaust what could be wrong?

Luis Reyez: Scotty my car is throwing out too much white smoke while driving its a 2010 mitsubishi evo x 

Railbox200: how accurate are these test?

Edward Crowder: Scotty, I have a 2001 Sierra 1500 with the 5.3 engine. It is currently flashing the SES light and giving me a P0300 code. After checking the spark plugs I found this one ( https://www.dropbox.com/s/sgg616ms61ayil2/20141115_151522.jpg?dl=0 ) with oil on it and none of the others did. Could this be the result of a head gasket gone bad?

Bernice Brundage: I have a 96 tahoe with a 350 it smokes like a sob mostly whit but once in a while there's light blue smoke would that be a head gasket or bad rings

strung0ut01: Hi Scotty, really appreciate all your tips. Just wondering I am getting coolant in my sump, I haven't tried this combustion tester but did I pressure test the cooling system and it isn't losing pressure, which should rule out gasket failure correct? Any ideas how it could be getting into my oil?

john hill: If theres a bad head gaskit doesn't water get into the oil also n turn,it a grey color?? I was in il. a few months ago ,stopped at a shop off the highway a guy did this test n said I had a blown headgaskit the car was fine just ran it too hard I think its running fine

Shamoon Irfan: I have a Chevrolet Captiva. I had some coolant leakage problem but cannot determine where the leak is actually. I had been running on water as coolant in the coolant system. Now after 2-3 months I can see some brown powder mixed with the water in the coolant bottle. I am worried is it the blown gasket mixed into water or is it the pipes corrosion dissolved in water. Please Help Kilmer. Thanks in advance

Ellen Clougherty: question, what if a seller knows he has a blown head gasket and does a quick radiator flush and puts new antifreeze in before putting it up for sale and doesnt start the vehicle, will it still show up on this test....

Michael Gutierrez: I've been running my 97zj jeep for almost a year. (5.2 magnum) and have no problems other then dirty coolent o flush it once a month and use straight water :D

Falcedon: Hey Scotty I have a 2001 Chevy Malibu 3.1 v6 (famous for head gasket problems) and I've noticed some problems. My coolant reservoir has a white creamy gunk on the cap and inside the rim of the reservoir and there's a leak under my manifold. Does this sound like a blown head gasket? My dad has been a mechanic for over 20 years and he won't believe its a head gasket.

Latino America: Just tried the test on my honda civic 2004 gasoline engine and the fluid turned GREEN instead of yellow.... isn't the green supposed to happen only for DIESEL engines? What does this mean? 

Pan Filo: Hi Scotty! So I did this test and the die did not change color, even after 10 minutes. I also checked spark plugs for oil and coolant, and they appear to be clean. What else could be causing white smoke from the exhaust??

EppingForest304: In a garage they use a gas analyser to check for Hydrocarbon emissions coming from the coolant
