Engine Cooling problem
1993 Pontiac Firebird 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 115000 miles
I just bought this car. I get no heat, but there is no white smoke or water in the oil. The car will not get up to normal operating temp. Doesn't climb above around 120 degrees. It is not overheating. There is compression loss in two cylinders on opposing sides. The cooling system has been professionally flushed twice.
I spent ost of what little cash I had just trying to find out the problem and am being told that both head gaskets are blown and will cost $1200 to fix them. Before I waste more money. Does this sound true? Even though there is no smoke or water in the oil?
