seadog47 is on a distinguished road
Well I ran the engine and no back pressure on the oil cap when removed. I noticed my coolant reservoir was empty and the pan under the engine has oil in it. I know I had a small leak around the fuel pump at high rpms but the burning oil smell is outside by the exhaust. I'm leaning towards a blown head gasket now. Is it worth sending an oil sample for analysis to narrow this down or should I just grab the wrenches and pull the head?
