it is in the shop now and if they find the head gasket is bad would it be worth fixing? I cannot afford a car payment and my finances are tight tight tight. someone suggested a sealant to the radiator? can someone advise me whaat to do? fix it, sell it or rig it up?
RC 4/6/2012If the repair cost is half the value of the car, looking for another car may be a better choice. You'll have to look at the overall condition (tires, transmission, body, etc.) before making a decision .
Leigh 4/6/2012I just got a call from the mech he let the car sit for over a 1/2 hour and had it on the machine he does not see the head gasket as the issue. However when I bought the car 6 yers ago the gauge would never go over the half way mark of C (cold - H (hot). not when it goes over the half way mark I freak out and turned on the heater to pull the heat from the engine so I never seen how far the gauge would go. Even on the highway when it would get hot I would turn on the heater. So what am I to think??
Leigh 4/6/2012He checked the fans and said they are fine. I asked him to take the car out on the road and make dbl darn sure. I thought it was the head gasket but now Im thinking maybe not..
