engine died!
My repair journal Posted by Marc on Thursday December 15, @12:50PM
from the why does it always happen when you really need the car dept.
Fired up the car for some weekend driving....
And it started up great, which is pretty good since she'd been sitting for 2 weeks, and it was under 20 degrees outside, in the sun. Was idling, a little smoke was evident, then it just faded and died. Wouldn't turn over, wouldn't even budge. Then I noticed a little pool of antifreeze on the top of the block... what the hell! Well, it'll have to wait til spring, now. Lucky it's in my friend's driveway and he doesn't mind. More to come....

    It is not uncommon to have anitfreeze seep out of one or more of the head studs. No big deal really. I put some stop leak in and sealed it up.
