Have you diagnosed the problem to be the head gasket, or are you guessing.

What are the symptoms.

I would be carrying out a compression check, and cylinder leakage test on all cylinders.

If it is a blown head gasket, it will need replacement, don't bother with any dodgy chemical sealer, it will not work.

Black smoke means too much unburnt fuel, blue smoke is burning oil.

1. Your problem is the cylinder head gasket cracked.
2. Forget about bad turbocharger at this moment.
3. You need to buy a new cylinder head gasket and new cylinder head bolts. Check the cylinder head flatness when removing. Rectificate the cylinder head surface if necessary! Also change the engine oil & filter. You need new engine coolant, of course. If you do it yourself the approximate cost of the reparation is $250.

What is causing the engine on my 01 chevy cavalier to lope


Easiest possibility would be a clogged fuel filter. One time I had a car that was loping and it was just 2 broken engine mounts. But could be a sensor or a bad cylinder as well. Need someone to help you decide which one is the culprit.

91' camaro rs 305 is losing horsepower when im driving and engine lopes when in idel


HI. Engine loping at idle in a stock RS camaro will likely be caused by bad fuel injectors. The throttle body on your car has two large injectors and usually the drivers side will short out leaving the passenger side over-working. You can see this occuring if you remove the air cleaner lid and use a very bright flashlight to look at the spray pattern for both injectors. They should look the same roughly. There could be a vacuum leak at the MAP sensor hose, there could also be stuck open EGR valve as well, commonly there is a problem with the Engine Coolant Temperature sensor and wiring connector that may be the cause of your problem. As far as the vapor leak in the fuel system, check the fuel hoses near the gas tank and the smog canister under the hood for cracks or broken places. I have had to replace many fuel pump o-ring seals on these cars though. The spot where the fuel pump hanger mounts into the fuel tank has a large diameter o-ring that cracks and splits very commonly, also if the fuel pump was replaced, sometimes people don't quite get the seal to stay in place just right.

Rough idling/loping at idle it otherwise runs fine off idle.


1. Vacuum leakage Check throttle body and intake manifold for tightness. check all vacuum hoses.
2. Faulty fuel or pump or electrical.
3. Plugged PVC valve.
4. Air filter clogged
5. Leaking head gasket.
6. Camshaft lobs worn.
All of these porblems can cause lopes or erratic idle.

I HAVE A 99 JETTA AND THE THERMOSTAT GAUGE NEVER WORKED PROPERLY.I WAS DRIVING AND WHITE SMOKE STARTED TO COME OUT OF THE ENGINE.IT SMELLED LIKE WHEN YOU GET A RADIATOR WET.I OPENED THE HOOD AND SAW THAT...


You have blown a hose or a thermostat has stuck causing the engine to overheat, you may have blown a head gsaket as well it could be as simple as a radiator cap but suspect you blew the head gasket. SOrry hopes this helps, Be sure to tow it to the shop do not risk damaging the engine by driving it till you know what is wrong.

Rough idle and engine will shut off after warm.


Check the exhaust manifold gasket. I have a 2003 SVT Focus I had a problem with it loping at low RPMs. I had a free flow exhaust system. When I bought a new exhaust manifold I replaced the gasket and the problem went away.
