Possible head gasket issue
Posted by Rob Randall [Email] (more from Rob Randall) on Tue, 1 Oct 2019 14:22:47
My indy mechanic said that there is some coolant in cylinder #1 after taking it in for sudden rough idle and I noticed thick coolant oozing from the coolant filler cap when I popped the hood to check for a vacuum hose leak. He said he would not feel confident to install the head gasket because of his experience.
Car is 97 9000 CSE stick with 98K and in otherwise great shape. There is no smoke coming from the tail pipe and the car runs great except for the Idle is a bit abnormal but not horrible.
Would you recommend getting another opinion? Are there other things that I could check? Would anyone recommend Bars Leak?
Thanks for the info.
