Hooded Eyelids – Causes of Hooded Eyes
While many starts to see their eyelids become heavier with age, hooded eyelids can also be a genetic trait that has been with them most of their lives. In either case, aging of the skin does tend to produce heavier hooding as the skin becomes thinner over time. Hooded eyelids are not always a cosmetic concern but can also make it difficult to see!
Causes of hooded eyelids
Hooded eyelids are caused by different factors like aging, genetics, or underlying fat and muscle.
Our skin tends to lose elasticity and begins to fall as we age, but the effect is more evident on the face, especially around the eyes. This leads to a noticeable droop around the eyes, appearing hooded.
Besides aging and hereditary traits, other factors that contribute to hooded eyelids include:
Fatty tissue deposits, causing the upper or lower eyelids to appear puffy
Muscle weakness that opens the eye, known as Ptosis
Excess skin around eyes causing wrinkles and bags under the eyes
Why do more people want to treat or lift hooded eyelids?
Women and men are increasingly looking for solutions to hooded eyelids because they feel their hooded eyes make them look tired and aged. Most people have gotten frustrated with makeup applications and have realized they are difficult to hide. Though there are make-up tricks to make the hooded eyes look less hooded, many find it daunting when the mascara or eyeliner leaves a print on the brow bone, or the eyeshadow disappears into folds. In extreme cases, hooded eyelids have fallen so much that some find it difficult to see clearly when driving or reading.
So, how to treat hooded eyelids?
Many surgical, as well as non-surgical treatments, are available to treat hooded eyelids. However, there is an immediate, safe, and effective solution to lift your hooded eyelids with no surgery through the use of eyelid correcting strips.
Eyelid Tape or correcting strips help lift your hooded eyelids by supporting the excess skin up and back into the crease of the eyelid rather than it falling forward.
Contours Rx has created an invisible eyelid correcting strip that supports the eyelid for up to 24 hours, called LIDS BY DESIGN. LIDS BY DESIGN has perfected the instant, non-invasive solution for hooded eyelids. LIDS BY DESIGN are dermatologist-tested and made from the highest-quality organic and medical-grade materials, which means that they are latex-free and hypoallergenic
LIDS BY DESIGN helps transform the shape of your eyelid in seconds so you can enjoy a more youthful appearance. LIDS BY DESIGN also offers a variety of sizes so you can find the best fit for your unique eye shape and hooding concerns
While hooded eyelid surgery costs thousands of dollars and eyelid creams aren’t recommended as a standalone treatment, LIDS BY DESIGN eyelid correcting strips are the best non-surgical solution to lift your hooded eyelids instantly!

Eyelid Tape For Ptosis: The Best Non-Surgical Eye Lifting Treatment
There are multiple solutions to ptosis. But eyelid tape is hands down the best way to fix it without surgery.
But how does it work, and which eyelid tape brand is the best? This post will answer both of those questions and show you why eyelid tape is the best non-surgical treatment for ptosis.
How Eyelid Tape Helps: Solutions For The Cause of Ptosis
Ptosis causes your eyelids to droop and hang over your eye. But what causes that to happen in the first place? Before seeing how eyelid tape fixes ptosis it’s important to understand what causes your eyelids to droop.
The Causes of Ptosis
Ptosis can be caused by a few different things both natural and unnatural. The unnatural causes involve some kind of accident that damages the muscles, skin, or nerves around the eyelid.
Children can also naturally be affected by ptosis, even at the time of their birth. But the most common natural cause of ptosis is aging.
Over time the muscle that lifts the eyelid – called the levator muscle – can weaken. This causes the eyelid to droop over the eye, and in some cases even obscure vision. Sagging skin due to age may also contribute to the drooping effect of ptosis.
How Eyelid Tape Beautifully Lifts Drooping Eyelids
Eyelid tape compensates for weakened levator muscles. By using adhesive material it lifts the eyelid and any sagging skin around it.
Eyelid tape comes in small convenient strips. By placing the strip at the area where your eyelid folds over you can lift your eyelids. This gives your eyes a more youthful and open appearance.
The change they make to your appearance is drastic. Eyelid tape makes a big difference for people affected by ptosis.
Some people, who’ve used Contours Rx eyelid tape to fix their own droopy eyelids, were happy enough with their results to share their stories.
“I have super droopy eyelids but I am allergic to latex and adhesives. I decided to give this product a try and I could not be happier!!! No reaction and my eyes look at least 20 years younger! Thanks, Contours Rx”
– Crystal Withrow
“I can’t believe how well these work. I have no trouble putting them on. My lids have gotten so loose and droopy they are uncomfortable pressing down and blocking my peripheral vision on top to the point that I have been bumping my head. I thought eyelid surgery was looming in my future, but these are comfortable and my eyes look so natural.”
– Karin Merill
Reading other people’s success stories is helpful. But when it comes to using eyelid tape, you can see the results for yourself.
Contours Rx Eyelid Tape Are Designed to Fix Ptosis
There are a few brands of eyelid tape on the market. It can be difficult to decide which brand will fix your ptosis the best. Britain Todd, the founder of Contours Rx, had a similar problem when she was looking for eyelid tape to fix her own eyelids.
After trying some of the most popular brands of eyelid tape, she found out that they had some big problems. They either didn’t last all day and fell out, or they were made of cheap materials that irritated her skin.
Eyelid tapes have been around for a long time. But they’ve mostly been used by an Asian audience to change the appearance of monoids. So a lot of Asian eyelid tape brands are not designed to effectively fix ptosis.
Other popular brands of eyelid tape geared towards a more western audience fall short by using cheap and non-hypoallergenic materials.
This may not seem like a big deal if you’re not allergic to things like latex. But being that you wear eyelid strips for hours at a time, or all day, it’s important that you use good quality materials. Bad quality materials make eyelid strips less comfortable, and can irritate your skin.
With all these problems in mind Britain and her team worked to make their own eyelid tape. One that would fix these issues, and help with ptosis. After investing tons of time and energy into finding the right materials and design, they came out with: LIDS BY DESIGN Eyelid Correcting Strips.
The Benefits of Contours Rx Eyelid Tape LIDS BY DESIGN
It’s never been easier to fix ptosis. Contours Rx LIDS BY DESIGN Eyelid Correcting Strips are specifically designed to lift drooping eyelids caused by ptosis.
No more drooping eyelids! They give your eyes a vibrant youthful appearance. They’re comfortable too. The materials are a rare combination of hypoallergenic and dermatologist-approved. They also blend in with your skin so they’re unnoticeable when you put them on.
LIDS BY DESIGN Eyelid Correcting Strips are:
- comfortable to wear
- last all-day
- won’t irritate your skin like other brands,
- blend into your skin, so they’re unnoticeable
Try Contours Rx LIDS BY DESIGN Eyelid Tape
No one should have to look more tired than they feel. It’s not your fault if your eyelids are drooping, so don’t put up with ptosis. Eyelid tape is a great solution to instantly fix drooping eyelids – without surgery.
Try Contours Rx LIDS BY DESIGN Eyelid Correcting Strips to fix your ptosis, and see how many years they can take off for you.

Why I Love the Underrated Cat’s Tongue Brush
I often paint an entire painting with just one Cat’s Tongue brush. This brush is unique because of its triangular shape and when you get a good one, the point will be springy so you can get thick and thin lines like a round brush can. When I painted this mermaid, I was able to paint the tail with straight edges from the sides, like a flat brush.I squeezed into the details of the fin and the arms with the point. Medium lines for the seaweed were achieved with the medium lines from the edge.
You can also get big washes for large areas with a flat side. When I painted the mermaid’s tail, I used the flat side of the brush and moved in a zigzag motion to cover this area. I also used it this way for the background. Covering the dry paper with water first, I then took a dark mixture and put it in the outer area with the flat side, using different techniques to pull the water and change the values accordingly.
Depending on the size of this style of brush (they come as small as a 2 and as big as a 12), the bellies aren’t the biggest but they can hold a nice amount of water. When I started, I admit I bought too many brushes and had no idea what I was doing. All types; real hair, synthetic, and mixes of the two. All different shapes and sizes. I really should have slowed down and focused on one brush at a time. For beginners with a tight budget, this is the first brush I would recommend because it is so versatile.
I used the no. 4 2400 Golden Taklon Cat’s Tongue brush and it is synthetic. If you haven’t tried this style, I highly recommend you do!

How To Easily Fix Asymmetrical Eyes Without Surgery
The good news is you can fix uneven-looking eyes. If you’re concerned about the risks or cost of surgery, then there’s even more good news.
You can even fix asymmetrical uneven looking eyes without surgery.
This post will show you how. There are two ways to easily and dramatically improve the appearance of asymmetrical or droopy eyelids without surgery. You’ll also get some more info on surgical solutions, so you can be in the know about the risks involved.
But before getting into how to fix asymmetrical eyes, it’s helpful to know what causes eyes to look uneven in the first place.
Why Do My Eyes Look Uneven?: Common Causes of Asymmetrical Eyes
It’s true that facial asymmetry is perfectly normal, but some people develop more noticeable differences between their eyes than the average person. There are a variety of causes for these differences. Some are natural, and others are due to medical conditions. Aging is one of the most common causes of uneven eyes.
Aging Can Cause Asymmetrical Uneven Eyes
As people age, it becomes more likely that they’ll develop uneven eyes. According to a study of facial symmetry published in The National Library of Medicine, as people, age facial asymmetry tends to increase.
The reasons for this could be due to the soft tissues in the face changing shape over time. Another contributing factor may be the asymmetrical growth of the skeleton as old bone tissue is naturally replaced by new bone tissue. The changing elasticity of the skin as you age may also contribute to an uneven appearance.
Eyelids also tend to droop when you get older. The muscle supporting eyelids can weaken over time. This causes them to sag and can make eyes look uneven.
Genetics Can Cause Asymmetrical Eyes
Most people are born without perfect facial symmetry. Genetics is a natural cause for uneven eyes. Genetically uneven eyebrows or the shape of someone’s nose may also contribute to the appearance of asymmetrical eyes.
Genetically uneven eyes are not a cause for concern. They are common and generally don’t interfere with anyone’s health. Most genetically uneven eyes aren’t very noticeable. Especially compared to uneven eyes caused by more serious medical conditions.
Medical Conditions Can Cause Asymmetrical Eyes
A variety of medical conditions from physical trauma to disease can cause eyes to become asymmetrical.
Some common medical causes include:
This condition causes the eye to appear sunken. Eyelids may also look retracted. It’s not unusual for people with enophthalmos to have noticeably uneven eyes.
People affected by ptosis have eyelids that look droopy. It can affect one or both eyelids. It’s more common in older people, and generally isn’t a cause for concern. But ptosis can be dangerous if the eyelid droops enough to block someone’s vision.
Proptosis causes the eye to protrude forward. It gives the appearance of eyes that are bulging. This condition may also come with more serious symptoms of pain, and pulsing of the affected eye.
This condition only affects one side of the face. It causes the affected side to become paralyzed. This affects the eye causing it to droop along with the mouth.
How to Fix Asymmetrical Eyes Without Surgery
There are a few viable solutions to fixing asymmetrical eyes without surgery. These methods, while temporary, are effective. With them, you can give your eyes the appearance of being even and symmetrical.
These methods can be reapplied as often as needed. You can use them on a daily basis, or as needed for special occasions.
The first, and most effective, way to make your eyes look even without surgery is Eyelid Tape.
Think of eyelid tape like one-a-day contact lenses. They’re invisible and once you put them on you can wear them all day. After putting them on you’ll instantly see the difference.
Eyelid tape works by lifting skin sagging over your eyelid. You can use them to lift one or both of your eyes to give them a more symmetrical and youthful appearance.
It’s much more immediately cost-effective and safe than surgery. It also gives you all the same benefits. If the eyelid tape is well made it should also be comfortable to wear too.
The Lids By Design Instant Eyelid Correcting Strips from Contours RX is an eyelid tape that only uses high-quality materials. They’re lab-tested and latex-free to make sure they’re safe and as comfortable as possible.
They’re also available in multiple sizes. This gives you a lot of control over how much you lift each eyelid. It can be difficult to match the appearance of one eye to the other. So having control over how much to lift each eyelid helps.
After trying Lids By Design Instant Eyelid Correcting Strips for yourself it’s easy to see that they’re effective. We’ve even seen some people use their Instant Eyelid Correcting Strips to fool surgeons.
One of our customers Kristen told us this funny story about her experience. “After being turned down for surgery due to my hooded lids, I tried Lids By Design. Well, the joke was on the surgeon, because the next time I saw him he actually said, ‘Oh you had your lids done by someone else. Wow, they look great!’ Fooled him, and got to skip the ordeal of surgery.”
You can see eyelid tape by itself is enough to correct asymmetrical eyes and improve their appearance. But if you want to try another non-surgical method, makeup can also help.
By applying makeup to certain areas of the eyelids you can create the illusion of symmetry.
This method is not as effective, because you’re not physically altering the eyes or eyelids in any way, but it can help make a difference in your appearance.
Eyeliner and eye shadow can be used to change the appearance of your eyes. By applying makeup unevenly on one eye you can change its appearance. This creates the illusion that the eyes are more even. Styling your eyelashes can also make one eye appear larger or more open.
Makeup used in a combination with eyelid tape can be a great way to drastically improve the appearance of your eyes and make them look even. Although eyelid tape is usually enough.
Of course, makeup is temporary. There are other more permanent solutions to fix eye asymmetry, but they come with a high cost and more risks.
Pros and Cons of The Surgical Procedure Blepharoplasty
Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure to make the eyes look even by fixing baggy, droopy, or uneven eyelids. It’s a voluntary cosmetic procedure done primarily to improve someone’s appearance. In some cases, it might also be done to improve someone’s vision.
The surgery itself involves cutting along the fold of one part of the eyelid. Then removing sagging skin, muscle, or fat from the eyelid area of the face. The cut is then closed. Then another cut is made on another part of the eyelid. Fat, excess skin or muscle can then be redistributed to this other part of the eyelid.
Surgery is always a serious consideration. There’s the cost, the risk, and the thought of permanently changing your appearance. It’s a lot to take in.
If you’re nervous about not knowing how you would look after surgery, you can use Instant Eyelid Correcting Strips. Using them will show you what you could look like after the procedure without getting it.
For other concerns you might have, the pros and cons listed below should help you make a more informed decision.
Pros of Blepharoplasty
Shorter Recovery Time Compared to Most Procedures
Compared to other cosmetic surgeries, the recovery time for Blepharoplasty isn’t very long. After the procedure, you can leave the facilities that day, and recover at home.
There are some temporary discomforts you may experience like bruising, swelling, light sensitivity, blurred vision, or watery eyes. You also won’t be able to wear contact lenses or do any strenuous work for about 2 weeks.
But during the recovery period, you won’t be completely incapacitated, or need to completely cover your eyes with bandages.
The Results Are Long Lasting
Once the surgical procedure is complete the results can be permanent. According to Mayo Clinic, a nonprofit medical organization for medical professionals, “For some people, results of surgery may last a lifetime. For others, droopy eyelids may recur.”
In either case, the results are long-lasting. But there are some risks that should still be considered.
Cons of Blepharoplasty
Some negative aspects and risks of blepharoplasty are common to surgeries in general, but some are specific to that procedure. Before considering surgery you should know the risks.
Surgery is not cheap and blepharoplasty is no exception. According to a study performed by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons the cost of blepharoplasty in 2017 was about $3,026 on average.
This doesn’t include hospital fees, and the cost of any time or equipment needed for recovery. It’s also important to remember that many insurances don’t cover aesthetic procedures.
Blepharoplasty is a primarily cosmetic procedure, so you’ll likely be paying for it out of pocket.
Lengthy and Complicated Preparation For Surgery
As with any surgery you want to go through a strict vetting process to make sure the surgeon is capable and experienced. This could mean weeks or months of consultation visits and research, just to find someone you feel comfortable with.
Once you do choose a surgeon you’ll need to undergo many appointments and exams in preparation for the surgery.
You’ll have to undergo an initial consultation, a physical exam with extensive eye measurements, vision tests, tear tests, and finally, pictures will need to be taken of your eyes.
There are multiple steps to complete in the process that could take longer than expected. Additionally, you may need to do a follow-up surgery if complications occur.
Risks of Potentially Permanent Damage
Every surgery comes with risks of things like infection, reactions to anesthesia, and blood clots. But blepharoplasty comes with a few more specific risks that you should be aware of.
According to Mayo Clinic, the risks of blepharoplasty include:
Infection and bleeding
Dry, irritated eyes
Difficulty closing your eyes or other eyelid problems
Injury to eye muscles
The need for a follow-up surgery
Temporarily blurred vision or, rarely, loss of eyesight
Some of these risks such as scarring and skin discoloration involve permanent changes to your appearance. Other more serious risks could even permanently impair your vision. Although these risks can be rare it’s important to be aware of them.
There are a lot of different ways to fix uneven eyes. Surgery isn’t the only option. Instant Eyelid Correcting Strips are an effective way to quickly and drastically fix asymmetrical eyes. Using makeup is an also option, and can even be used with Instant Eyelid Correcting Strips.
If you’ve been looking for a way to fix asymmetrical eyes check out Lids By Design Instant Eyelid Correcting Strips. They last all day and blend in perfectly with your skin. Try them for yourself to see what they can do for you.

Comparison of Top Eyelid Tape Brands with Contours Rx
Top Eyelid Brands
1. Asian Eyelid Tapes
Asian eyelid tapes have been around for a long time, and were made quite popular in China and Korea to give users with monolids a more Westernized eyelid. Because of their more playful use in the culture, these eyelid tapes are made with cheaper materials and glues, which cost very little to the customer. Therefore, these tapes are not latex-free, hypoallergenic, or medical-grade.
I applied this eyelid tape using my fingers, as instructed, and used the tool to press it into my eyelid. Because I already have a more Western eyelid shape, the results that were achieved were minimal. These tapes were more visible on the eyelid because they had little pores on the surface, which ultimately didn’t end up blending with my skin tone. This brand lasted 2 hours before they began to fall off.
MAGICSTRIPES have become a very popular eyelid beauty tape in the US, and is easily available on Amazon and other beauty websites. MAGICSTRIPES does not claim to be hypoallergenic, latex-free, or medical-grade and comes in 3 sizes: small, medium, and large.
I removed the medium tapes using my fingers, as per the instructions, and placed it on my eyelid. Once again, I found that the tape was noticeable on the eyelid although it did provide a lift. I also noticed that by using my fingers, I had damaged the corners while removing the tapes, which made them more noticeable. MAGICSTRIPES lasted 4 hours before beginning to fall off.
Something interesting and unexpected we discovered is the incredible similarity between a version of the Asian tape we purchased and the MAGICSTRIPES product. The only difference we could detect was that MAGICSTRIPES provided 32 strips for $26.00 and the Asian-packaged equivalent provided 120 strips for $3.96.
3. LIDS BY DESIGN, from Contours Rx
LIDS BY DESIGN stands out as the only eyelid tape on the market to be latex-free, hypoallergenic, and made from medical-grade materials. Their patented eyelid tape designs are unique to this company, their tapes are made in Germany, and they offer 6 unique sizes: from 3mm-8mm. Each box contains 80 strips.
I placed a 5mm tape on my eyelid using the tweezers provided in the kit. The tape easily blended into the skin tone, noticeably better than the other brands, and evenly contoured my eyelid. These eyelid tapes lasted all day on my eyelids until they were removed.
4. Eye Magic
Eye Magic is the last brand we tested. This brand states they are hypoallergenic and medical-grade but are not latex-free. This product is different in that there is an emollient gel that you are instructed to place on the tape before using it because the tape is too sticky to be placed directly on the eye safely. The company does not state how many tapes are in each box, but it appears to be about 60. This product is available in 4 sizes: small, medium, large, and extra-large.
I used my finger to put the emollient gel on the tape and then placed the tape on my eyelid. The gel created a wet sensation on my eyelid that remained for quite some time. The eyelid tape went on fairly smoothly but did not stick for very long on account of the gel, so it began to fall off after 1 hour. I tried the tape without the gel and as the company states, the strong adhesive makes it difficult to remove and does irritate the skin.

The Importance of Getting CPR or First-Aid Training
As CPR helps keep blood and oxygen flowing and increase the chances of a victim’s survival, learning first-aid and basic life-saving techniques becomes crucial.
Here are some of the top reasons why you should learn CPR and first aid.
The primary reason to learn professional CPR is that you could save someone’s life. Approximately 600,000 people die each year due to sudden heart attacks. Performing CPR properly and promptly will help preserve the victim’s brain function during cardiac arrest, increasing the person’s chances of survival.
Prevent Brain Death
Performing CPR will even prevent the brain death of an individual. Brain death usually occurs in four to six minutes after the heart stops breathing. If CPR is given within the first two minutes of a heart attack, the person could be saved as it keeps blood flowing and supplies oxygen to the brain.
Prevent Worsening Situations
If first aid care is not given during critical health conditions, the person’s health may deteriorate. With proper training in first aid or CPR, you will be able to stabilize the patient’s condition and prevent the worsening situation until the medical service arrives.
Gain Practical Knowledge
CPR training will equip you with the practical knowledge and tools that you require during medical emergencies. Knowing basic life-saving techniques could make you a lifesaver instead of being a bystander.
Be More Valuable
Getting trained in first aid and basic life support (BLS CPR certification online) will make you more valuable in the community, workplace, or even at your home. The more you get trained, the better are your chances of helping someone save their lives as quickly as possible.
And you never know, a situation may arise where your CPR training will save your loved ones, too!
In addition to these, CPR training provides you the confidence to make the right decision in case of a cardiac emergency or other critical health conditions. You can help patients stay calm and comfortable until medical help arrives.
Become a Part of the Solution
According to an online resource for emergency medical services, only less than 3% of the US population enrolls in CPR training. Every minute that passes with no first aid or CPR, the victim’s chances of survival are decreased. Getting CPR certified can help you save people and make a difference in their lives.
There are varied CPR Certification courses available online as well as offline, and these programs wouldn’t take much of your time. It generally takes from 30 minutes to 3 hours, depending on the course you choose. Sign up for a CPR certification or first-aid course today and join the 3 percent!

Non- Surgical Eyelift – Alternative Treatments for Droopy Eyelids in 2020
An eye lift is a blanket term that can refer to several different procedures, that can either be surgical or non-surgical. The most common non-surgical procedures are eyelid lifts and brow lifts. As you can expect, an eyelid lift refers to the treatment of the entire eyelid region while non-surgical brow lifts focus only on the eyebrows.
It’s simple, a non-surgical eye lift is a procedure that enhances the appearance of your eyes giving you a ‘lifted’ look to your eyes without having to go under the knife. The other option is referred to as Blepharoplasty. This is a procedure where a surgeon will cut the excess skin off of the upper or lower eye area.
Precautions to be taken before surgery
It is important to remember that this is an invasive procedure that is risky and involves several medical injections and may not be right for you. Side effects like bleeding, soreness, numbness, and swelling and even dry eye syndrome from cutting to much off. Surgical eye lifts are not recommended for people who have unsuccessfully tried other wrinkle reduction treatments, pregnant and nursing women, elderly patients, or people under the age of 18. If you take certain medications like blood thinners, you could be at a higher risk and surgery may not be an option.
Looking to lift the eye area without surgery? Let’s look at the options…
The botulinum toxin injections (also known as Botox) can help lift your brow without surgery. Simply put, Botox injections block the signals in your brain that pulls the muscles in your eyebrows down. This will help smooth the skin around the forehead and could give your eyes an elevated arch. The Botox injection injections last between 3 and 4 months.
However, it is important to know that by relaxing the muscles in an attempt to lift the brow there is a risk that this can cause a heavier brow resulting in heavy hooded eyelids.

Functions of Engine Cylinder Head
The engine cylinder head is an integral part of any engine. It is bolted onto the engine block and sealed with the cylinder head gasket. This closes the combustion chamber.
Function of an Engine’s Cylinder Head
Sitting on top of the engine’s lower end, the cylinder head function is to provide a clean air/fuel mixture for combustion and exhaust the spent mixture from the combustion chamber. An engine needs to breathe in the fresh air and breathe outspent air. An engine has a cylinder head to ‘breathe.’ It contains air passages, valves, springs, and possibly the camshaft. The camshaft, either through pushrods or directly, manipulates the valves to accomplish this intake and exhaust of the air. There are also oiling passages for the components lubrication and cooling passages to keep things from overheating.
How are Cylinder Heads Made
Engine cylinder heads are cast out of iron or aluminum. Once the cast is made, the cylinder head goes to be machined and cleaned up. Oil and coolant passages are cleared. The intake and exhaust runners are cleaned and cleared, as well as the mating surface and the valve pockets and seats.
Signs of a Defective Cylinder Head
The following signs of problems could indicate a cracked cylinder head, a need
for cylinder head repair, or need for a remanufactured cylinder head:
Loss of engine power
Vehicle overheats or is running hot
Observing oil in the coolant reservoir
Coolant level is frequently low
The odor of coolant when exiting the vehicle
The smell of burning oil when the engine is warm
Remanufactured Cylinder Head
A remanufactured cylinder head is a cylinder head that has been rebuilt with new parts. New valves, valve seats, seals, keepers, rockers, and bolts are typically installed. The cylinder heads are pressure tested to ensure they aren’t leaking and are crack-free. They are resurfaced, reassembled, and sometimes even repainted.
