Head gasket

Asked by Jan 26, 2016 at 04:42 PM

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I replaced head gasket on 94 nissan 2.4 liter.
When i put it back together the nut that connects
timing chain to cam wasnt tight enuff and backed
off.i lost the timing on it and just kept moving the
cam and trying to start it. Finally i got it in time but
water is still getting in the oil.. Is it possible i
ruined the new gasket or something else.. Tia

1 Answer


The head may be cracked or warped. Did you have the head surfaced? You should also get a manual as cam timing by guessing is not a good idea.
