Blown head gasket, or fraud of a dealer?
Just bought a 2002s80, I've only put 2k miles on it so far which brings it to 70k. On my drive to work yesterday it started smoking and the thermostat needle just stopped working. I checked the oil and it was almost completely empty. I filled the oil and then brought it back to the dealer and they are saying blown head gasket. Is that possible this soon into driving a car or does this sound more like this guy sold me the car without disclosing all the problems?
No way to determine at this point - especially after driving 2k miles. What was the cooling system and condition of the engine at the time of purchase? Any evidence of cooling system leaks or overheating?
