If the engine won't crank, check the condition and tightness of the battery leads, particularly the black earth where it connects to the engine block/bodywork. Loosen and tighten each connection in turn.

An engine that won't crank is a classic symptom of a 'bad earth' .

If the engine cranks slowly this is also a symptom of a bad earth/cable - or a defective battery.

Can you get a friend or neighbour to boost-start your car? If, after cleaning and checking the battery lead connections the car is still sluggish in cranking and won't start - suspect a faulty battery.

Will your car start with a boost-start? Most workshops will do a free battery check for you.

If the OBD-II connection to a scanner doesn't work, then the computer may be bad, or the wiring between the OBD-II connector and the computer is faulty.

What OBD-II Scanner are you using?

You need to have the computer scanned to see what is happening with the emissions. You may have a vehicle in a poor state of tune or have 1 or more sensors not operating at par. A scan will show a technician where to look for a problem

Remove the head and faulty gasket . For a good job have the head skimmed to make sure that it is not warped and fit a genuine head gasket as after market gasket do not always have all the necessary holes . RE tension the head studs in the correct order and to the correct tension and the job will be a good one.

Are you sure it's not a squeeze clamp? Most likely it is not leaking from the clamp. Either the hose has a whole right next to the clamped area or the heater core is leaking.
