Signs of a Blown Head Gasket

  1. Overheating Engine: A blown head gasket can lead to engine coolant leaking into the combustion chambers, causing the engine to overheat. You may notice the temperature gauge rising into the red zone or steam coming from under the hood.
  2. White Exhaust Smoke: If coolant is leaking into the cylinders, it can mix with the combustion gases and produce white smoke from the exhaust. This smoke may have a sweet smell, indicating coolant consumption.
  3. Coolant Loss: A blown head gasket can cause coolant to leak externally or internally. You may notice a drop in the coolant level in the radiator or coolant reservoir without any apparent external leaks.
  4. Milky Oil: Coolant mixing with engine oil due to a blown head gasket can result in a milky or frothy appearance of the oil on the dipstick or under the oil cap. This is a clear indication of coolant contamination.
  5. Loss of Engine Power: A blown head gasket can cause compression loss between cylinders, leading to a decrease in engine power and overall performance. You may experience rough idling, misfires, or a noticeable lack of power during acceleration.
  6. Increased Pressure in Cooling System: A blown head gasket can cause excess pressure to build up in the cooling system, leading to coolant overflow or coolant being pushed out of the radiator cap.
  7. Combustion Gas in Coolant: In some cases, a blown head gasket can result in combustion gases entering the cooling system. This can be detected using a combustion gas leak detection kit, which tests for the presence of hydrocarbons in the coolant.
