Re: O/T need help on 2.2L engine (head gasket)
is this a front drive or S-10? regardless, it's the same engine with the same problems. it if's front drive, look for coolant at the drivers side front of the head gasket area. easy to see. this is THE MOST common place for this engine to leak (ask me why? i've done at least 30 head gasket jobs on these) on the S-10's, look at the drivers rear of the head gasket area, may need a mirror. i usually do these head gasket jobs in a couple hours (yes, 2 hours)
if it does leak there and you need any pointers on making this a fairly painless deal, let me know
these engines require new head bolts too, torque to yeild style.
when stock just won't do..............
power is nothing without control!!!!
