I am hoping that someone who has actually replaced the gaskets and can provide factual insights and advice, specifically, step by step tear down instructions. Information on non-dealer part sources would be appreciated as well. Usual parts...

    Hello all, I subscribed to the topix service so I could get as much info as possible in case I really do need to replace one or both of my head gaskets.

    Is it common that when you redo your head gaskets that something else in the engine wants attention? Just redid my head gaskets about 200 miles ago. Last night I started hearing this: What is your diagnosis? https://www.dropbox.com/s/4h9palebegnrixq/20171128_012821.mp4?dl=0 and this...

    Just found out today that my significant coolant leak is indeed due to a head gasket leak. I also have a RH exhaust manifold leak. Mechanic said that when he does the head gasket he can do the manifold leak at the same time (meaning he's not going to charge me extra labor for the manifold leak...

    I've got a 2003 RR. I took it to the local shop for a coolant leak that started as a slow leak, "low coolant level" message coming on every 6 weeks or so. There were no noticeable puddles under the vehicle, but it gradually got worse and I took it to the shop. The valley pan was leaking...

    Hello to you all, I'm about to finish a head job and just come to realize that my valve covers ( both ) do not have the inner splash plate or baffle plate ( not sure the right name ) I guess PO did some kind of job there and removed the plates and "forgot" to put them back or who knows. Does...

    I am seeking some major advise on an issue I am having with my 2002 Range Rover. I recently purchased this vehicle from a car dealer having recently wrecked the same exact model. Upon driving the vehicle, I did notice a slight noise coming out of what seemed to be an exhaust manifold (noise...

    Well, heading up the mountains to my cabin yesterday I was merging onto the highway and suddenly plumes of white smoke behind me. Pulled over and coolant all down the highway. Looks like it is coming from the back side of the engine, thinking passenger side. Anyhow I cant think of any hose...

    Hi all, My Vogue has been for its MOT today and thankfully passed with no issues on the emissions. I have been losing small amounts of coolant onto the driveway after longer journeys and mentioned this to them to check. They said that when they checked the oil it was a bit milky on the dip...

    I'm looking for some advice on diagnosis for head gaskets. I have a 1994 classic, I've put about 4000 miles on it. It has about 105,000 total. Runs great. Radiator overflow started to pressurize just before I put it away for the winter. If I let it warm up idling, there is no pressure build...

    Yet another Head Gasket question, but this is about taking a risk.... For followers of this writer's hesitant steps, this should be a joy.... The Rangie is in Crete, where much has gone on to get it going. Today, as part of the normal 'what might be wrong today?' check, I found light brown...
