Well my wife was on her way home when the head gasket blew. This is two weeks after paying $1,000 for replacing the fuel pump in the gas tank and some other work. She was just riding along and Wham, white crap coming from the tail pipe and after taking the engine apart to replace the gasket we find out that the head has massive electrolysis around each port and valve. We were lucky it lasted this long. It just went over 200,000 miles and it was a 96 model.
I will miss the car but its simply is not worth the 2,200 (approx) to fix. This sucks and to top it off this week has been a stressful week anyway with one thing and another. Whine,,,,,,,,,,,
I started my new/used car search today and was looking at a 2008 Hyundai Sonata loaded for about 17,000 used. It has about 12,000 miles on it. One good thing is I have presidents week off so I have time to look for a car. But man this sucks, not a good time at all. Snivel, whine.....
