1989 Toyota Camry 4 cyl Automatic 211000 miles
I noticed my car would be steaming from near the radiator end at stop signs and after parking. Then while driving on the freeway, it overheated and the radiator exploded. Luckily, no one was harmed. Anyhow, I replaced the radiator myself, replaced new fluid in 50/50 mix with water, inspected for leaks (none), but now the car wont start, engine just turns over. Mechanic says its a broken head gasket, which will run about 350$ to fix, but I need to be sure that's the reason its not starting before I drop more cash on it. Is head gasket a reasonable cause for not starting? Could it be anything else?
have the same problem?
