Research on Head Gasket for Ford Explorer

The Ford Explorer SUV has consistently gotten high marks for value, reliability, design quality, and driveability. However, a Ford Explorer head gasket leak will mean enjoying the vehicle a lot less. When it is time for a 1999 Ford Explorer head gasket replacement, you will definitely know it, because a host of problems will start to appear - not the least of which is loss of power and compression.

About the Head Gasket

The whole purpose of the head gasket is to seal the cylinders in order to maximize engine compression and prevent coolant and engine oil from leaking into the cylinders. Because of this, it is the most important engine seal of all, and since it is technically part of the combustion chamber, it must be just as strong and durable as the other components.

Ford Explorer Head Gasket Leak Symptoms

If you are lucky, you'll have some warning when a head gasket is getting ready to blow. That said, there are symptoms to look for if it has blown already (which doesn't necessarily mean that the engine will stop running). The most common is coolant loss (without any visible leaks) and seeing coolant coming out the tailpipe or from the exhaust manifold (actually steam). This in turn will cause the engine to overheat. You may also see white smoke coming out of the exhaust pipe (although this can also be indicative of an incorrect fuel mixture). Another sign is oil in the radiator coolant, or conversely, a milky substance in your engine oil. It should be noted that these symptoms, individually by themselves, don't necessarily mean a blown head gasket. However, if they are all occurring, it's a good bet that the head gasket is going by the by.

Fixing a Blown Head Gasket

In some cases, you can do a temporary fix by adding a head gasket sealer to your radiator. This is available at most auto parts stores - simply open up the radiator while the engine is cool, pour it in, then run the engine for a bit. However, this won't be a permanent solution. Eventually, you will have to get a Ford 4.0 SOHC head gasket replacement.

Head Gasket Options

There are several materials available. The modern 1999 Ford Explorer head gasket replacement and later is of the MLS type, or "Multiple Layered Steel." They have three layers of steel with rubber on the contact surfaces, enabling it to stick to the surfaces of the engine block and the cylinder head. Solid copper is also common, and is quire durable. Older head gaskets were made of asbestos or graphite composite, but do not last as long (and asbestos has been largely discontinued because of health concerns).

2000 Ford Explorer Head Gasket Replacement Cost

The gasket itself is not expensive, but the labor costs can run between $850 and $1100. You'll do better on the price of the part by shopping at PartsGeek.com, a discount retailer of auto parts and accessories. It pays to shop here first, because if you go elsewhere, you're liable to pay more.
