Well I did it.

So my car has been having some problems that leads to the maf. Well it also turns out the headgaskets are leaking. So today i was passing a car on the highway and i feel a massive shirft, the whole car literaly moved 4feet to the side and I put the emergency lights on. I limp home and I smell something burning. So I get home it sounds like i threw a rod or two. My sis and her ex-boyfriend agree. He works on cars and shes blown a rod before as well(in more than one sense) I feel awful cause I was so close to getting this car fixed and here I got blowing a couple of rods. And burning oil. So I'm screwed, so this might be the last time I'll be on here.

u shoulda just pulled over when u felt problems. driving it home was not a good idea. sorry man, but you probably caused alot more problems just driving it.
