How To Tell If Your Head Gasket Is Blown




What do you think about this video?

callmeishmel Melville: My Dad always told me to look at your coolant. Does it look frothy and almost like milk chocolatety? Oil is leaving the engine and entering the cooling system, mixing with coolant.

pixie33ck: Hello :) I love your videos they are very helpful and concise. My water pump belt broke on my 2008 Mazda 3 and I ended up overheating the engine till I blew the head gasket. I was going to fix it myself but a friend of a friend said he would give me a good deal. He ended up saying the whole engine is bad. How do I test to see if the engine is truly bad? could a bad head ruin the whole engine? I am a novice so I am learning as I go. I am just so tired of getting the run-around from dishonest mechanics. If you have any suggestions I would appreciate it so much, Thank you.

Jonathan Gorr (AndrewRyan): My low coolant signal is flashing but the radiator doesn't appear to be accepting more fluid- the reservoir is full of coolant. Could there possibly be a block in a line? Or maybe the indicator is broken. Any ideas?

Walter White: good vid scotty

Dexter Kinchen: hi Scott my RX lexus is running as I spay in d in d air filter could u tell me are help me out sir???

Jim S: Does this test confirm 100% that the head gasket is blown? Couldn't it be another issue that leads to air in the cooling system, e.g. punctured heater core?

demmy adeogun: Hello Scotty, about 3 weeks ago, my 2004 Jeep grand cherokee started riding rough and stuttering. It was spewing white smoke (fuel) from the exhaust and would not drive over 20 miles per hour. The check engine light is also on. I changed the spark plugs and coil pack and it was fine for about a week but it came back again. What would you recommend I do to fix this issue?

LivDoesIt: I need to get one of these testers. Good video

Kris Rodriguez: this is awesome

MrSupercar55: I've heard that if the bottom of your oil cap has a substance resembling mayonnaise on it then that might also mean your head gasket is blown. But then I've also heard that ducks fart in church!!! LOL
