Gen 3 Prius vehicles are particularly prone to head gasket problems, and at our Albany auto care facility we have both the experience as well as the tools to diagnose head gasket problems.
Signs of potential head gasket failure:
When the Prius engine has a misfire, the check engine light comes “on”. This does not necessarily mean that the head gasket needs replacement, but in most cases it does require a professional to diagnose the cause of the check engine light.
When the head gasket fails, it allows coolant to seep into a cylinder, causing misfires, which in turn results in the rattling noise and shaking. After a while it may go away, but it’s important to have a professional mechanic inspect your vehicle. These symptoms should not be ignored, since driving with a blown head gasket can result in further damage.
