So I have sludge in the coolant. I've looked at every other reapir website and they are all saying the same thing. Blown head gasket. Now I've checked the oil and there seemes to be no coolant or water in it. Also the other sites say to check it by pulling the plug caps and hand cranking it to see if the coolant gushes out of the top of the radiator. Thats where another problem is. It turns over but wont start without having to do that. It ran fine all day yesterday and when I went to start it today it just turned over but wouldn't start. Thats how I noticed the low coolant and sludge. Any help would be appreciated.
