I think I've got a blown head gasket....
I have been trying to get the jetting right and came across an article
that said if the hg is bad and coolant gets into the combustion
chamber that it is impossible to get jetting right.
Well I have no external leaks. All hoses are good, new orings on the
head pipes, new thermostat, and new radiator cap.
I used almost a full overflow bottle of coolant today going to/from
work, 78 miles. Been adding regularly, knowing that it shouldn't be done.
So, will a compression test yield enough information to determine if
either hg is bad?
Then, I can only hope its the front one so I don't have to pull the
