Default Symptoms of possible blown head gasket

Hi!

Can anyone explain symptoms of possibly failing/blown head gasket?

Would engine knocks if fuel filter is clogging/clogged up?

Thanx in Advance.

Hard starting, coolant leak but not on the ground, and if the engine runs a lot of white smoke and smell sweet like coolant.

Thanx, Master Tech.

At least my symptoms are none of above.

From the sound/noises (sound like someone shaking container w/ few coins) heard while trying to accelerate, someone informed that this may be due to buildup in the distirbutor cap (possible delayed contact) and/or converter (tranny) issues. Although mileage is low @ 66K, it's 99 Ram 1500van.

Any thoughts on this chirping sound?

Many thanx in advance.
