I have a pontiac grand am gt. I was driving it when it overheated and shut off. Got it home, let it set overnight and now it will not start. When I try to start it, coolant leaks out and I seen something bubbling around the head bolts.

Have it pressure checked for leaks, it kind of sounds like either a head or intake gasket has let go and leaked. Thee was a n intake problem that year

Well if there are no external leks then it's lekaing inside the engine and it will need to come apart. The gaskets on intake as well as hed cold be bad along with a cracked head but you have to test it first. Then someone with experience on this sort of thing would have to look at gasket to see if it were blown

It was leaking around 2 of the head bolts. Is a cracked head a worst case scenario?
