My tire blew on me while driving and I hit a ditch causing me to go airborne, but I was able to put my spare on and make it home. The radiator was cracked bad the fan doesn't work and slowly but surely, it's not working. I now have problems where it turns over, but I can't reverse or put it in first only idle, and when I put a little bit of gas it completely shuts off. More like gurgles and burps until it's not working. I'm thinking it could be spark plugs because I had oil in my back three cylinders so I might have to change a valve somewhere which I don't know about I'm about to replace the spark plugs next will be the sir. But I'm guessing that works because I'm able to give gas and it shuts off so obviously it must be working for it to get too much air or something and I'm pretty sure my vacuum seals are all good unless there's some I don't know about and that's not least I'd hate for it to be a time change because I do not know how to fix that and I definitely don't have the money.

Hi,

I'm not sure what you are referring to when you say there is oil in the last three cylinders. Do you mean oil inside the engine or in the spark plug tube?

Also, do me a favor. Check the transmission fluid to make sure it is full. You may have damaged something (radiator) and its leaking fluid. See pics 1 and 2 below for the procedure.

Let me know if you have scanned the computer for diagnostic trouble codes as well.

Take care and let me know as much as you can.

Joe
