Question about 2002 Hyundai Accent

Open Question

Tiny spring between the block and the cylinder head. What is it?

We are replacing the head gasket. There is a tiny spring between the block and the head. On the exhaust side near the front. What is it? It is tiny and weak like a pen spring. Any idea what it is?

    I am going to answer my own question. Just in case anyone else out there is having the same issue. As it turns out....the spring is part of a part called the 'non return valve'. It is a Hyundai part (part number 2113523010). The reason we just found a tiny spring was because the piece of the part that holds the spring inside of it had deteriorated after 13 years. The little cylindrical piece and ball bearing were still down in the block. I am attaching photos to help anyone else who may have had this same issue. :-) The first pic is the new part installed in the block. The second pic is the old part in pieces after removal. :-)

SOURCE: My 2004 Hyundai Sonata is

quite possible the front is out of alignment
possible that a weight came off from one of the tires

both of these problems cause an unbalanced ride which equates to vibration.
When was the last time you had a front end alignment?
What condition are your tires in?
When were your tires balanced?

Seems like you had a lot of work. Did you have these vibrational issues before you brought your car in? Perhaps placing your car on the lift took the front out from alignment. Anything is possible.

Do you think head gasket?


probably not --
have a compression test done to check for head gasket and cracked head
from your description I suspect that a welsh plug has rusted out and the steam is from coolant on the exhaust manifold
have a cooling system pressure test done to see if it is leaking along the side of the block

Head gasket or lower intake gasket on 98 Blazer


this does sound like a head problem (hopefully just the gasket). pulling the head with the exhaust manifold attached is possible but tricky and difficult. risking the bolt and drilling it out if it snaps would be alot easier. I would strongly suggest having the head checked while its off (so you dont rebuild to find that you wasted time and money on a bad head)

I have a 2000 grand am I replaced the head baskets car runs great but it still runs hot heater want work and it leaks water from tail pipe help


If you're getting water out of the tail pipe, you could have a head gasket that is leaking coolant into an exhaust port. When you replaced the head gaskets, did you properly clean the gasket mating surfaces of both the heads and the engine block? Did you check the heads for warpage? Did you check the block deck surface for any unevenness? Any of these areas could prevent a new gasket from properly sealing. Are you having to add coolant? Did you replace the thermostat? Did you make sure that the thermostat was properly positioned in the housing? It should go in with the coil spring side to the engine. Did you flush the cooling system and install fresh antifreeze?

My son and I replaced the heads on a 94 Explorer. They were definately cracked. The Block " looked " ok. There was coolant streaming out of the tailpipe. After putting on new heads and putting it...


theonly thngs that would cause this problem are the heads, the gaskets or the block. When you checked the block did you rotate the engine and check each cylinder? Did you yse a light . Cylinder walls can have a hair line crack and they are hard to see. If you replaced the heads, then that would lead to the head gasket. There is a certain way that these go on. Some gaskets say which is top, some don't. rule of thumb is that the written side is always up. Sorry to say no matter what the problem is, it has to be redone. Some thing you can try, this has only worked for me a couple of times. After some one did the job. Loosen all the head bolts, then retighten them in order exactly how the manual specifies. don't take it completely apart. do as little disassembly as possible. then try it again, see if the exhaust problem goes away. this is just a shot in the dark before you completely tear it apart.

Have a look for a heater control valve that may be leaking in area near firewall on passenger side, just follow your heater hoses.
