Well, I found a write up on head gasket swap, but it sure is confusing...

that sucks man, considering I drove my o2 sentra to 102k with no head gasket problems and I had overheated the engine before and blew up a radiator.

Well, ours has 140k on it, so she's gone some distance...

But, I'm not 100% sure about that yet. Have to check and see when I gets home. ;-)

Well, the plugs were wet. All of them. To the point that when i blew them out with the compressor, a nice spray shot off.

One cylinder appears to have standing liquid in it, as I can look in with a flashlight and nudge the car and see it move around.

The oil is definitely milky:



But how do you tell if it's water or gas?

Smells like gas.

I looked and couldn't see water in the radiator, and inside the car, when it was warmed up last time, I could hear gurgling towards the firewall (I assume the heater core lines).

...and that's the state of the union.
