Engine Mechanical problem
1994 Ford Thunderbird V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 90k miles
I was driving this car when it suddenly overheated. Stopped to check the car and antifreeze smelling smoke was coming out of the tailpipe. Shut the car off and had it towed to my mechanic. He discovered all the antifreeze had dropped into the oil pan. He drained the car today of oil and antifreeze and started looking for the leak- filled the car back up with antifreeze and did NOT start the car and the antifreeze he added puddled under the car anyway without being run. He says he "thinks" the head gasket is blown. Would the antifreeze simply run out on a car that is sitting if it's the head gasket? It's a pretty expensive guess in my opinion and I want to know for sure what is wrong with the car before putting any money into it- if at all.
have the same problem?
