My friend overheated his car to where the car
turned off on him in the middle of the parkway and
the car wont start back up. I checked the spark
plugs for him and there is oil in the sockets where
the plugs go. I figure he needs a new head but i
need more info about it. Help is much appreciated!
That means that the oil seals for the plug tubes are bad, if he ran it till it died chances are high that he fried the engine, once you get the head off you will be able too see if the cylinder walls are blue, if they are then it's engine is toasted.
@tennisshoes is there any repairs to that or best chance is to junk the car or change motor?
If the block is blued then the engine will have to be replaced, the block has lost its tempering, and even if you did manage to get it too run, it would not be too long before it started burning more oil than fuel.
My 2001 Mitsubishi gallant won't go into gear it's like it's in neutral in all gears?
I just want to throw my 2cents in. I bet if you did a compression leak down test. You will find many if not all the valves leaking. Over heating these motors are its death. Cheaper to find a good used motor and have it installed than having the damages motor repaired. I see that the car is getting older so you may what to find a new car. Take into account and you put 3000 into its repair and next week some one hits you and their insurance company will only want to give you 900 for the whole car. Just thinking out loud
