    Both of them sound like a bad head gasket could be it.

    How to change the head gasket?

    Remove manifolds, disconnect all hoses and plugs from the head, take it off, inspect gasket, if it doesn't look brand new then change it. Maybe not quite that simple, but essentially that's how.

    And make sure you have a factory service manual because if you over- or under- torque the head bolts it'll affect compression.


    And on that second car it sounds like a bad head gasket or a bent/broken valve in cylinder 1. Take off the head and check that.

    Get a factory service manual if you don't already have one it'll help you out so much.

    By the way, overheating can cause the head gasket to go bad and can warp the head causing catastrophic failure if you don't hurry up and fix it. Happened to my last engine.

    And after you check the head gaskets, check the cooling system and make sure that's functioning right, check the thermostat, waterpump, all lines and hoses to make sure there's no leaks. And bleed it next time you change coolant.

    I had a similar problem with my d15b7 my 93' civic came with it was running hot. Coolant wasn't circulating and I ended up with a warped head and a bent valve.

    Uhh...I don't know about you but I sure as hell wouldn't seal my headgasket permanently. Definitely stay away from that shit unless you think your internals will last forever and trust me they won't.

    Yea it says right there on the site "Permanently seals blown headgasket" ask them if that just seals the gasket itself somehow or if it permanently seals the head to the block that's rediculous.
