Q: Q: Blown head gasket

asked by on

The head gasket blew.

Hello. When the head gasket blows it is a serious problem that should be addressed as soon as possible. There are two ways to fix this properly. The first way is to remove the cylinder head, have it machined and rebuilt, and replace the head gasket. The second way would be to replace the entire engine. You would need to make a decision as to which of these two ways is the most cost effective, or the best option for you. This problem should be addressed by a certified technician.
