Need new head gaskets?
The past few weeks, I have noticed that the temp gage has been moving more. When I stop at a light, the engine's temp shoots high and kicks the fan on. and then when the fan turns on, the temp shoots right back down. And the past week it has been around 20 or 30 degrees here in Cleveland, Ohio. I'm wondering if it's the head gaskets or not? Also when I start the car once the engine is hot, it shakes real bad, almost wanting to stall, and i have to rev if for a few secs and then it's ok, also when the engine is cold, the past few days the engine pings and knocks very badly till it gets warm. Also has a wine to the engine in time with the gas peddle, and has gotten louder every day now. If it's the head gaskets, how hard is it to do by myself? Thanks for reading my message. Eric
