Are you saying you think *I* have a blown head gasket? I can assure you
I don't (talking about my Camaro here). However, for the 5.0 engines a
5 minute rise to 220 is not something to get worried over if it stops at
that level. And actually most of the times I have seen a car with a
blown head gasket, the temp seemed to stay low (the sensor is often out
of the water and so reads low) and you get the boiling and such of
overheating when the guage says it's not. I can't say this would always
be the case, but I have had two cars myself that did that.
