Engine Mechanical problem
1985 Toyota Pickup 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 146K miles
Truck overheated, no coolant in radiator. Engine stalled. Have water and oil on dipstick.(Cappucino color) I'm thinking blown head gasket. Mechanic pulls spark plug and finds it dry.
States that could be head gasket, but has to take it apart and examine closely. But there is a possibility after they replace head gasket and reassemble, may still have problem, which means a cracked cylinder block which mean replacing the motor.
Is there a diagnostic test to determine a cracked cylinder block? I hate spending money on labor and parts on a blown head gasket. Only to find out I have to replace the motor. Seems like a waste of money.
have the same problem?
