Possible Blown Head Gasket?????

Recommended Posts

I have a 95 civic that I just got in. I know nothing about it but the oil is milky and overfilled so im pretty confident their is a good amount of water in it. I took a compression test and it had 150 psi all across. I did a running compression test and they all had 90 psi. The exhaust does seem to puff out some smoke or at least steam. I did a combustion leak test on the coolant to see if their was any exhaust in the coolant and it didnt really seem like their was. So now I am pretty confused! Thanks, Matt.

Headgasket's gone. Milky oil and white exhaust are indicative. As well as the low compression.

Trust me I know about replacing head gaskets, It is simple but very time consuming and suck doing. Trust me.

While you have the head off, Check to make sure the head is alright as well. I worked on a car to relace a head gasket only to come to find out that the head has a crack in it.

did you use the block tester which you use a special liquid in the tool and put it in the coolant opening of the radiator. If there is exhaust going through your gasket the lquid will change color. Is it that one you did? You can also fill it up with water and with the cap off, remove one spark plug at a time and put compressed air in the cylinder, check for bubbles
