When an engine is over heated from a cooling system failure or the diesel engine is put under abnormal loading the increased temperatures of combustion will melt and burn any sharp edge that protrudes into its path. Once the hot spot is established the extra heat generated by the molten metal adds to the combustion temperature, increases detonation and aggressively continues to burn away the cylinder head, sealing ring of the head gasket, piston crown or edge of the cylinder wall. While this is happening the performance of the engine will be noticeably reduced, accompanied by audible pinging and knocking. The coolant temperature will be high and the oil pressure considerably lower than normal. A few good reasons to shut off the diesel engine but most drivers prefer to squeeze the last few yards out of the engine. When the diesel engine is continually driven after the head gasket has failed between cylinders, the combustion cross firing between the two cylinders burns out a groove in the head and block face. The head will often require building up in the burnt area before surface grinding. We specialise in diesel cylinder head gasket repairs to the following vehicles.
