How long ago did you purchase the car and perform the repairs?

I want to know how much you have invested in it. A head gasket job will be easily over 1K. and you will still have issues.

Stick a fork in it. It's done.

It's a big job and will cost much more than the car is worth. Move on and get another Suby! :-)
