Problem diagnosed!!!

Thanks for all the input, I'm relieved now that I took the engine apart to look for the source, because if it wasn't what was wrong, I'd of been pissed lol. But true enough, the head gasket blew out between cyl 3 and 4. Now all I have to do is clean out everything, and crank her up and pray to God she fires.

heres some pics.



While I'm in the engine I'm taking pics of parts and what goes where just for the heck of it. If anyone has any reason they need pics of the little 2.3L then tell me. Make a request. Well I hope to have everything back on tomorrow night, so please hurry.

Get the head and block good and clean. Get a straight edge or have someone who has one check the head for warping before reinstalling it. Good luck otherwise.
