I've done my head gasket in too!
It started missing pretty half decently in traffic yesterday afternoon and I thought of the head gasket straight away. Anyway, after a bit of mucking around and checking out vacuum hoses and leads, I gave up. Started it this morning and took it to the place where I got my gas done to finish off wrecking the EF. Checked under the oil cap for giggles and hey hey it's full of milk.
My mechanic put a bit of this rubbery cement block thing in and said it'll last a little while if I treat her nice
Thinking of getting my spare EF head machined and throwing in an AU steel gasket. Apparently the steel gasket makes the cam timing get thrown out somehow? I don't know if this is true but I was told this today.
2nd head gasket I've killed from Super-Hard Sundeep Thrashment™
this year lol. I've only driven my car for about 15000km since I bought it. I didn't drive Mum's more than 2000km before it shit itself lol. I feel some head-gasket curse coming on!
