This thread seems to be about people refusing to learn from poor decisions.

I feel like many of your threads are about people failing to learn and repeating mistakes. Rewiring the mind; one of the most difficult things to do. It takes deliberate effort, introspection, and perseverance.

Yeah, but what was the underlying reason it blew? If the head is warped, replacing the gasket won't help anything. I thought Xist said the car had overheated?

The most painful part is probably disconnecting/loosening the timing belt.
No wonder so many rednecks still prefer OHV engines. Well, actually I agree with them sometimes...

Yes, my car overheated. I have the gasket kit, but I am always trying to keep up with work and my family. I feel like my greatest obstacles are getting sucked into television shows that Mom is watching and browsing cat pictures on the Internet. I checked my history and all that I really did today was keep up with threads like this: https://imgur.com/gallery/cMDxljc

I have said before that when I replace my head gasket I will have the head milled.

When I lived in Page I realized that my radiator cracked, but I never drove the car more than a couple of miles, and it was cooler than Phoenix, so I forgot about it. I do not understand how it overheated driving seven miles in 70 weather, but I sure wish that I replaced the radiator before the engine overheated!
