4 cyl 2.6L 2WD -California is willing to pay me $1500 to retire my Rodeo, which failed smog check. In order to do this, it must be able to drive onto their wrecking lot under its own steam, and then start without help and drive 10 yards. Last week it started misfiring, and I was afraid it was gonna die, so I pulled over. After a few minutes it started right up, but stil missing badly, and white smoke that smelled like solvent (not antifreeze, tho) began billowing from under the car beneath me - not from tailpipe or engine. Shop says its a blown head gasket. The car is parked now within a mile or so of the wrecker, and I need advice on how to be sure it can drive a mile, then later start and drive ten yards. Someone suggested engine block sealer. Any suggestions? (Sorry donation is so small - retired and poor).
have the same problem?
