Engine Mechanical problem
1991 Lexus ES 250 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 160, 00 miles
Car was driven while dry with no water in engine, because a hose had been removed, for a period of time which may be as long as 10- 20 minutes. Now, since the hose was replaced and coolant put into engine, the car runs very roughly and it has smoke, some of it is blue, coming out of the exhaust.
Is the problem a blown head gasket and how much will it cost to repair? Will the engine need to be replaced? If so, what will that cost?
