    Okay so i started my car this mornin nuttin but smoke outta tha exhaust... okay thought maybe small oil build up... then i hear lifter kinda tappin hard and car was stutterin... my hopes dwindled... ok ok ok it's a spark plug fouled out right??? WRONG>>> popped valve cover off and look what i find... Neon Green oil??? i wish, so i've got tha head off and find nuttin but antifreeze covering every piston and every nook and cranny full of antifreeze. So i ordered my gaskets i needed and wanted and am now payin as much in gaskets as i did for tha car... Just wanted everyone ta know what kinda day i've had so far... So for those of u that got off for lunch late or got yelled at... Perk up, u could be in my shoes...

    Sounds like me a few years ago.
    Paid $150 for a Ford Futura and a month later paid
    $650 to rebuild the transmission.

    I'm keeping an eye out for parts for you. But everyone in
    Leavenworth(less) seems to think every customer is a 16 Star

    There is a thread up in Tuning Forum. And I bet the red
    "SEARCH" button will find you a How To on this.

    and leave you hanging in the wind on your own." [ Mission Impossible TV show]. :D
