blown headgasket :(

Well, my '93 LX finally blew its head gasket :(
It is a 3.8 with 165K+ on it....

It was acting really funny (badly) for about 2-3 weeks before it went.....

Will let you guys know what the mechanic says/thinks...

That sucks! How was it acting before it went out? Kind of like a missing or shuddering? I think the head gaskets in my girlfriends 95 LX with the 4.6 v8 is going out now. I new the 3.8 had head gasket problems, but never heard of the 4.6 blowing them.

Re: blown headgasket :(

yes the gaskets on the 4.6 have a little issue with a weakpoint. Not often will you hear of them letting loose, but there is one area that will let go first. I will find the pic and post it up.
