does, loss of water, increase temp and very smooth running sound like a gasket gone? seem to be losing water and temp rises on our donor van? when only standing in our yard or moving out of the unit? is a gasket something that is reasonable for a DIY to repair? regards E

It is a straight forward job to change a head gasket, BUT ask yourself why it 'went'.

It may be that the engine overheated and has warped the head (it only takes a few thou').

The head (if found to be warped), will almost certainly need to be skimmed to bring it back level.

It is one of those jobs that has a nasty habit of escalating. Cheers, Tony.
