Leakd down test

i just did a leak down test recently due to low compression in some of my cylinders and the guy told me that my whole head is f***up, he said that my head gasket is leaking, that it might be warped and also my valves are leaking.My question is that shouldnt there be a check engine light and coolant mixed with my oil if the head gasket is bad?

Re: Leakd down test

well it would probably be overheating alot if the head is f'd it would be sputtering clicking engine light or "maintenance required" light should be on along with white smoke out the exhaust....and yeah try and see if there is oil in the radiator fluid....should be clearish not thick :)

Re: Leakd down test

yup if HG is bad, there should be coolant in the oil/oil in coolant. but it might just be a small leak tho, where the mixed fluids wouldn't be too noticeable.


CEL, no, not necessarily. but it "should" be running noticeably poor tho.

do you have the leakdown results (%leakage of each cyl)??
