Just after spending 2-3 weeks changing my head gasket, oil pan gasket, and installing a Z4 3.0 SSK. Guess what it still burns mass amounts of coolant, not to mention I stretched the throttle cable when everything was apart. I probably did shotty work or it actually could be a cracked head or block. I don't know what the hell to do. Any, and I mean ANY suggestion will fly with me.

You could probaly find a used parts car or complete engine for under $1000.

You have $0 so you can't afford a head gasket and head-bolt so you
wont be able to get your head planed either. :(

Just drive it easy untill you get the money?

Or you can get a friend that works at autozone to hook you up with
a head gasket and some headbolts and you can go to a junkyard and
throw a head over the fence when nobody is looking.. :lol:

As much as I don't advise this, it's still hillarious. :spitwater:

Well I've done the head gasket if you read my original post. It didnt fix my problem. So now I have a car w/ 0 freakin sale value and its spewing smoke from the exhaust. I just got my lastest check, 138 bux. I live check by check, and another tear down wont fly, and neither will borowin money from the parents. Well I have an interview tm, maybe things are lookin up.

Yeah, that's what I'm saying.
If you take off the head your going to have to replace the gasket again nomatter what.
Did you torque it to spec?

Sucks man, It's like $80-100 to shave the head If it isn't too warped so it's not too bad.

Good luck :!:

is there oil in the coolant or coolant in the oil? if no its fine to drive as long as you keep the fluid levles full.
