Best way to test headgaskets
Looking for suggestions. I have seen lots of youtube videos and read tons. Not seeing 100% reliable way.
See my signature for what I have and have done.
I was going to test the cooling system PSI and I believe this would be reliable anything over 16PSI would mean there bad right?
or is there a way with my insight or oil test maybe??
mah77 has me scared since his are bad with low miles and low delta.
I am just doing this as a precautionary since my oil cooler was clogged pretty good I had 27 degree delta. I didn't loose any coolant. My EGR cooler looked ok and I didn't see any wetness in the intake, but it was sure full of soot and gunk.
