    Default head gasket blown up for the third time - Mehran

    hello all,

    hope u are having a good time. i have mehran and my head gasket blown up for the third time with weird reasons every time. Today when i was driving back to work suddenly the temperature gauge moved max and which heated up the car and it stopped in the middle, after removing the radiator cap, pressure comes up and i see the coolant vanished which i saw in the morning. After investigation i saw the water body leakage which put me into a bit worry as it was changed a few months ago due to leakage. In vain I drove with burnt gasket to 40kmz as per advice of my mechanic, The mechanic removed the thermostat and found the water pump outage was stuck. I followed the advice of my mechanic who advised me to change the water in radiator after sometime and let me reach i am not sure if that cost me head gasket. please comment

    The temperature gauge will ONLY show accurate temperature as long as there is coolant/water in your radiator. If by any sort of leak, the water or coolant have drained out then the needle will stay at COOL and suddenly jump to Red hot maximum in few minutes. I have personally witnessed this in my mehran. You need to check your entire radiator + rubber connections for any leakage. Replace all rubber tubes and attach them with good quality jubilee clips. Replace the radiator if it is too old and corroded.

    Remember. You take care of your car and your car will take care of you.
