How to fix a blown head gasket without replacing or removing?

Asked by Ben May 05, 2016 at 01:23 AM about the 1994 Toyota Previa 3 Dr LE Passenger Van

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

White smoke came out of tailpipe dripping on floor looked smelled like coolant.  Was driving and car died on road.  Had to tow away home because scared to persue driving further.

Talked to several people nonmechanic certification but had known history of pass issues.  They said I had a blown head gasket.

check pressure of each cylinder, if they are all the same, head gasket is fine, if one (or more) have different psi, head gasket is blown..
