Some of the known symptoms of a bad head gasket or a cracked head are:
- White smoke coming from the exhaust
- Slow acceleration and shaking caused by engine misfires
- Disappearing coolant
- Overheating in general
These symptoms should not be ignored! Depending on the severity of your problem, you could completely ruin an engine running in these conditions for too long.
Head gasket repair can be a tricky process without proper tools and knowledge. For instance, in order to remove the head on many BMW engines, you first need to also remove the Vanos components (and reinstall them). EUROSPEC AUTOWERKS uses proper techniques to make sure your head gasket repair is a permanent repair and not just a temporary fix. We never reinstall a head without first taking it to a machinist for proper checking and resurfacing using manufacturer guidelines.
