goood luck
Sounds like a good idea

I tried using the pressure gauge and got pretty much 160psi on all eight cylinders. So how can that be? I am getting frustraded and don't know how a cracked head or blown gasket would still hold cylinder pressure.

Just to give more info, I never noticed the anti-freeze coming out when the car ran, only after it had sat, and no white smoke plumes from the exhaust.

thanks so far guys
