Engine won't start, anti-freeze in the oil pan no white smoke. how can I tell if it is just head gasket or if it is something worse? 1989 Chevy G-20 Van. -
Answer 1
do a compression test on all cylinders and get the cooling system pressure tested from there you will know if blown head gasket. -
Answer 2
A head problem is bad enough. The van is almost 14 years old. Do you really want to spend the amount of money to fix this van? I think not. Time to move on and look for another van. The repair will easily cost at least $1,000 or more. -
Answer 3
Possible intake gasket leak, very possible!! -

Comment 2
That time has come to pass, fixed a pile of them! For real. Especially on a pushrod engine! It's the most common cause in fact! Head gasket will steam from exhaust and/or pressurize cooling system, think about for awhile. -
