Default 1.6L water fountain.

Friends 1990 with a non intercooled Greddy kit and just an FMU ate its 2nd head gasket in a year. He brought it to my house and said he thought the battery was dead. I told him to pull the plugs first and turn it over, here is the result.

Don't know yet. Sounded like battery dead would not turn over, than pulled plugs to see that! He drove it like this to work for 3 days saying "it don't run right".

So I hope the starter did not have the power to bend a rod.

Majority is coming out of 1/2... check that IM has all the bolts holding it tight. Could be getting coolant leaking into 1/2 from the IM gasket....
