The other day I became an honorary member of the HG club. Well turns out the headgasket went because the metal that seperates the coolant from the cylinder disappered somehow. Anyways my question is I got it all put back together and now when i crank the car to start the tach bounces around. I dont recall it ever doing that before. Are the plug wires wrong or what would cause that? Also the radiator appears to be leaking along the passanger side now, possibly damaged from over heating, is there any way of fixing it? It looks like it is leaking where the metal meets the plastic. By the way it is a 93 3.8 thunderchicken.
this morning i finally got it to start after messing with the plug wire order for hours . now i am worried that there might be another problem. It appears coolant is coming out of a spark plug hole. What could cause that?
did you get the heads milled? they could have warped and are not sitting flush with the deck. if any coolant was left in the cylinders (there shouldn't be anyway), it would be blown out through the exhaust. find out where this leak is.
