    Unhappy chevy is dead/honda got hit - what a week.

    coming home from the track on saturday i noticed a good amount of white smoke coming out of the drives side exhaust pipe. pulled over to check it out, everything looked ok., so i drive it home.

    it looks like i am getting some coolant into one of the cylinders (wont know for sure till i tear the head off). i know its not my head gasket cause i spent $$$$ on copperhead gaskets when i built the engine. im hoping its something with the intake leaking and not a cracked block.

    on wednesday coming to work i got rear ended by some moron driving his grandma's car. broke my rear bumper & now my carputer wont turn on. i am stuck listening to cds.

    Hopefully it's just the head gasket. Doesn't matter what kind of head gasket it is, if it wasen't torqued down right or one of the bolts stretched it will leak...

    Lets see, our week of bad cars include, the Bronco fuel injector dieing, a shot piston in the Neon (The Neon has a 2 month old engine.) and I just got MY JEEP back from inspection and they screwed up the brakes!

    Anyway, Mew.
