Re: Strange question RE: Blown Head Gasket

Its probably not even the head gasket. It is probably the intake gasket.

As for getting it "across the finish line", towing it to the reclaimer and driving it shouldn't be an issue. Hell, back when there was the Federal "cash for clunkers" my sister-in-laws Rodeo spun a rod bearing. It locked up and wouldn't even crank. After talking to the salesman all they had to do was "drive" it into the clunker yard without assistance from another vehicle or being pushed by a person.

We loaded it on a trailer and hauled it to just up the road from the dealership. We unloaded it there in a gas station parking lot and with a slight downhill rolled it right into the lot and they got their voucher toward their new car.
