luvmacaddy Posted April 10, 2008 Report Share Posted April 10, 2008 Took my wife's 94 concours into the radiator shop today to have it checked. (Was losing anti-freeze, once got hot on a long trip two weeks ago.) They called back about 2 hours later to tell me that the head gasket was 'blown'. Why I ask, because they ran it with the radiator cap off and smelled/witnessed(?) exhaust coming through the anti-freeze. When I picked it up, said I should take it to somebody--they did not recommend anyone---and have the gasket replaced. How about Timeserting? (Blank stare) You know, replacing the head bolts so that this doesn't do it again? (Entirely blank stare, like I have three eyes). But what ever I do, DON'T DRIVE IT they say...oh no, the time/spcae continuum will end if I do? Well, she billowed out white smoke today (Weather was 38 degrees and high humidity), other than that, no coolant loss for about six days. My question---geez, I'm almost as bad as a US Senator!!!!--if the head gasket is blown, how long will it go with just adding coolant (daily/when it is driven) and only short in-town driving? I might add K&W Block seal after I get back from LV on the 17th. Thanks.... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
