Head Gasket Leak -Woe is me!
I discovered the reason why my Sunbird has been idling rough after a cold start, and it'* not good-she evidently has a head gasket leak. The tell-tale cloudiness in the oil did not show up until the car sat idle for more than a week, and now all the other symptoms make sense....
At present, I am pondering my options. Is it at all reasonable to undertake a head gasket replacement on a vehicle that has logged 238,000 miles? I know some people would suggest that I want MY head examined for even considering such a thing. This car has had a small head gasket leak in the past that was successfully treated with block sealer. Do any of you have experience with block sealers, and what are your thoughts?
