1989 Toyota Corolla Overheating - Engine


Question: Hello, my name is Andrew. I have an engine that over heated twice, I refilled the radiator and it over heated again with white smoke coming out of the tail pipe. I asume a head gasket is shot. My question is; with the engine being Al, do you think the head or engine block warpped? is there any kind of head gasket that can be used that will compensate for a warpped head? What are your suggestions regarding how I should pursue working on this engine. Thank You.


 
Technican: You have to remove the head to change the head gasket. While the head is off you have to inspect the head for cracks in addition to warpage. If there are no cracks take the head to a machine shop and for about 50.00 they will mill it true again. You also should check the block for warpage. There are no shortcuts to this repair. . Al
