Rotten egg smell, rough idle... how long has this been going on? How
many miles? Maintained regularly? Sounds like the engine could be
burning fuel overly rich. If it has been ignored for a little while
your catalytic converter could be toast as well. Engine light
blinking? Any codes?
well no check engine light.. just bought the car. 147 kms spark were plugs
gapped at 70 LMFAO. and just had a friend over and he took my rad cap off
(while cold to see if the head gasket was going), and it was under pressure.
HEAD GASKET might be going and might be all my problem. I have never had
acar have pressure like this while cold. You ru nit for 20 secods and you
have pressure like it was run hot for 40 min.. I don't know.. might scrap
that solves that problem, but what about the high pressure at the rad cap
when cold ?.. Bad head gasket ?.. I drove it 50kms and thought the temp was
around 1/2 to 3/4 ..it never over heated and seemed to run fine. Is the rad
cap thing normal ?
