Head gasket or engine overhaul? '87 5kcstqw
Need some listers imput.
I have a '87 5kcstqw that I absolutely love. Even with 228,000 miles on
it I plan to keep it for a long time (I have a company truck so the wagon
can just be for weekend trips). Last week my daughter brought it home
from a short trip (15 miles) and to make a long story short I have a
cracked head or blown head gasket. (had to add 1 1/2 gallons of water.)
She said it got a little hotter than normal.
I've had the car 6 months and have done brakes, shocks, water pump,
radiator & timing belt. Car runs great.

p.s. We went out this weekend and found a nice little '87 4kcs for my
daughter. 4 clyinder 5 speed. So simple.
