Note: I also appear to have a head gasket problem because there is water in the oil.
My question: Would it be worth fixing the camshaft (and approximately how much would it cost) considering that a head gasket is blown.
Also, repairing the head gasket is not economical considering it would cost more than the value of the vehicle. I was considering using the new Blue Devil Head Gasket Sealant that says works in NorthStar motors. It was recommended to me by the same idiot who helped me brake the camshaft as a cost effective method to keep the car running. I did some research and found it to have mostly good reviews but only for a last resort. Do you recommend Blue Devil as a last resort to keep a car running a little longer that is not economical to fix? Or am I best just to say the car is a lost cause. Thanks to will at O'Rielly Auto Parts in Springfield.
Thank you for any knowledge/help you can provide,
