IS HEAD GASKET ON 91 SATURN SC DOHC 2 DOOR COUPE HARD OR ESSY TO FIX
It's major surgery. It's DIY if you have a decent to good tool kit, fundamental mechanical skills, a book on it, a case of beer and nothing else to do for a weekend
why did this happen? did someone not pay attention to the light or flashing indicator? the smell of popcorn? drive until completely toasted?...y'see we have to know how deep are we into this? melted connecting rods? was it smokin' about to catch fire?~
Check out you tube. There are several good videos on how to do this job on this exact same engine.
CAR WAS RUNNING FINE AND CUT OFF. I PUT WATER IN OVER FLOW TANK AND TRIED 2 START IT. WATER SHOT BACK OUT OF OVER FLOW TANK. HEAD GASKET BLOWN RIGHT!
motor still turns right? is not "locked up"?
yay....it finally posted....there's the head gasket job right there~
MOTOR TURNS OVER FINE ALMOST LIKE CAR WANTS TO START!
A compression check could possibly tell you for sure if its a head gasket issue.
