Hey guys, long time no post. Well I've put about 30K on my new engine I installed a while back(89' LX). I have not had one problem whatsoever, until now. Lately it's been a little rough starting in the morning and I think that is just because my fuel pump is going out. anyways on my way home tonight my car had a ticking noise and I thought maybe I just needed to add a quart or something. Then POOF with a nice cloud of smoke. Car about died but I was in the intersection, so I kept on the gas (pretty heavly) just to keep it running til I could park it. The temp gauge flew up pretty quick. tried to start it back up and it wouldnt stay running on its own and it had a very unpleasant knocking sound. So Im like oh [email protected]*k...blown head gasket. Checked the oil and sure enough it was milky brown. My question is, does this sound like a typical blow head gasket case. I have never blow a head gasket on any car before so I dont really know. Or do you think I could have a more serious issue like a broken rod or piston head? Just looking for some advice on what to do from here. anything else I should worry about? I had to park the car in HomeDepo parking lot for the night. So im gonna get a tow or something tomorrow so I can pull the head off in my garage. Thnks Guys!
