Has My Head Gasket Gone?

Answer

To know if your head gasket has blown first check the oil dip stick. The clue to look for when you check your motor oil dip stick is a white or gray substance on your dip stick with the oil. If you detect this, it indicates that you have water in your oil and that is a sure sign of a blown head gasket. Drive the vehicle to see if you experience any loss of power, especially up hills, this indicates that your vehicle is losing compression and has a blown head gasket. Check the auto for overheating, the auto mobile will overheat when it has a blown head gasket and will keep overheating no matter what remedy you try. Listen for a chugging sound in your engine as you drive, chugging sounds and stalling out are definite signs of a blown head gasket. Look in the rear view mirror as you drive. Is the car emitting white steam? Does it smell different from normal? These are all signs of a blown head gasket. Look at the radiator for leaks and signs of coolant where it should??t be, such as the spark plugs. If your radiator is low on fluid often, this may be a sign of a blown head gasket. Look for oil in your coolant.
