Re: questions about head gasket/overheating/missing.

The actual line into the head is steel so you get corrosion right where it connects. As this can turn into a real mess quickly you want to actually check all the easy stuff first.

Re: questions about head gasket/overheating/missing.

If yiu do not have tubing wrenches you leave that to the tech. First you have to ge a good look at the return to reservoir stream. It should be a solid liquid full flow stream.

Re: questions about head gasket/overheating/missing.

You have a sohc, it should never overheat so something is wrong. My guess would be as severely restricted deareation line and the restriction is where it is screwed into the head. The other...

Re: questions about head gasket/overheating/missing.

Ignore my comment above, this will make better sense.

Next to none. If you really want to get into the underneath air deflectors then real decent pictures are required as the 95-96 model years are...

Re: questions about head gasket/overheating/missing.

The 95 SC-2 is not known for overheating issues unless something is radically wrong. This is however a 95 SC-1 and overheating takes real work.

Re: questions about head gasket/overheating/missing.

The A/C has little to do with overheating and that cowl has no impact at all.

Re: questions about head gasket/overheating/missing.

If that stream is not solid then you will continuously overheat. To fix it the steel line must be removed from the head and cleaned out. Then it all must be reassembled and visually checked for...

Re: questions about head gasket/overheating/missing.

The reason that happens is because the code ALSO disables the EGR so it quits opening. Block it off and see if that stops the missing before the code sets.
