1994 Geo Prizm Repair Question
Blown motor or head gasket?
thank you angie
So you know for sure its coolant coming out of the tail pipe?
No im not sure. It only happens if im going fast, like from slow to fast. suh as going onto the highway but when im on the highway it stops.
You can rent a chemical block tester from auto zone to see if there are exhaust gases in the coolant.
i dont know if this helps but my brothers said its not a tock its a knock & i do have a small exaust leak.
So is it using coolant or leaking coolant?Also is the knocking coming from the top end or bottom end?
it is using cooliant, ive put almost two full bottles of cooliant so far. & my brother said bottom of the engine but he is also 100% sure its my engine is junk, so it may not be acurate. it is very loud though.
If its burning coolant that is washing your rings and cylinder walls out.Also means you have a blown head gasket crqcked head etc.If the knock is in the lower end then thats a connecting rod and could damage the crank.So sounds like your brother right.
thank you for clearing that up!
Your welcome anytime.
