Subject:      It RUNS, It RUNS!

Finally, my van is running again since Christmas! Thanks to those of you who gave me feedback about pulling the other head to check its gaskets.

I ended up taking the suggestion of someone (can't remember who) and pulled the pluges from the passenger side to see if I had the same syptoms of a blown internal head gasket. Everything looked fine on the passenger side, so I only opened up the driver side head. Sure enough, the on of the thin green o-rings was blown.

Replaced it and reinstalled everything. Started up and everything rang great. Wife and child had a wonderful trouble free 400 mile trip this weekend.

Thanks again for all the advice and feedback.
