cool cooked motor ??

my mum drove car without water after the radiator hose burst until the car just stopped. i towed her home but i cant get it started. it has spark and fuel and it turns over (not as good as before). i took a spark plug out and when i turn the motor over it blows what i think is fuel as a mist out the spark plug hole.

what do you people think ???

Re: cooked motor ??

its stuffed lol.....

head gasket, would be stuffed, and bearings from over heating... pull it down and rebuld it, or take itt to a mechanic and see wht they say... would be what i said, ive cooked a brand new 302

We live in an imperfect world, but
there is no point in trying to make it perfect, because not everyone can be GREEK!

Re: cooked motor ??

Check your Radiator Hoses every 2 Weeks or so...helps to avoid this!
A few times ive found a dribbling hose and replaced it before drama!

Thumbs up Re: cooked motor ??

pull the plugs do a compression test. Depends on what car but anything uneven or under say 140psi get the head checked or do a leak down test.
You may get away with just a head gasket/ head weld not a full motor. If you dont have the tools required get it to a trusted mechanic
