So friday night I go out for some driving after getting the exhaust on. Car feels absolutely wonderful, pulls like a freight train, tune is pretty good (low 11's in boost) no knock that I noticed
I did notice a very faint coolant smell every now and then.
I've been having coolant leak problems as described in
A couple days before doing the exhaust install the coolant leak just STOPPED
Ok great right?
Well fast forward back to friday night:
I get on it a few times, everything is cool. Line up to race with a gtx turbo swapped festiva, get him by about 6 cars maybe more, when I let off I notice a small puff of steam coming out of the back
So I begin to pull over, when the car just dies. Right after it dies steam just GUSHES out from under the hood. So bad I can't see anything.
The coolant line going from the turbo has broken/snapped off and coolant is spewing from the turbo.
OK no big deal, I wait for it to cool off, and loop the tube back into the engine bypassing the turbo.
Try to start it: no bueno. Steam is coming from every where and it wont start. So I leave the car overnight. Come pick it up on a tow truck the next morning. Crank the car just for *****: IT STARTS
Steam is coming from everywhere, and it idles like crap but it started up and drove onto the flat bed.
Today I did a compression test:
Looking into spark plug holes everything looks intact, there are no holes in block, the coolant is not mixed with oil (or at least it doesn't look like it. Oil level is normal.
So what do yall think? Headgasket or am I fuxorzed?
Please help. I seriously need input
