Cylinder Head Replacement – Signs to look out for
Cylinder heads play a vital role in the engine by sealing the combustion chamber under high pressure. Cylinder heads can be made from iron or aluminium and as they work under extreme pressures can be susceptible to wear, damage and cracking over time. Here are some of the signs that you need to get your cylinder heads checked.
A cylinder head channels the coolant into the engine which keeps all of the engine parts cool. If the cylinder is cracked, the coolant can leak out and cause the engine to overheat regularly. When coolant is escaping into the combustion chambers, you are likely to see white smoke coming from the exhaust. Most people automatically think an overheating problem is related to the radiator not being topped up, but when a warning light appears and alerts you to overheating do not hesitate to get the vehicle checked out by a reputable mechanic.
If the cylinder is cracked, it will cause oil to leak into the combustion chambers. This can then lead to all sort of issues for the engine if not picked up quickly. This also may cause the exhaust to emit black or blue smoke.
Engine Misfires/ Poor performance/ Timing Belt Failure
When the cylinder is cracked or damaged it means that combustion gasses can leak from the engine which weakens its overall performance and can cause the engine to misfire and the timing belt to fail.
