Question about 1998 Mazda Millenia
If your head gasket is blown, you would know by the incredible white clouds of smoke coming from your exhaust. shut off engine immediately because you are contaminating the bearings underneath and the expense of repair will be almost as much as getting a new engine. what's happening there is you are burning your radiator fluid thru the whole motor. i say this because it happened to me on an oldsmobile calais.

SOURCE: blown head gasket
It depends on the severity of the blow, and the distance to the other dealer, less than a couple miles should be okay, Just make sure you got plenty of water in the radiator. Any further and I'd rather tow it! You don't want to save on towing costs and pay more for damages later! Hope that helps!

Hi! Yes this can happen. Don't doubt the mechanic for this incident is possible. If the head and block sticks then he'll have to force it to detach. This will surely be a painful procedure. Piston rings are surely fried and I strongly suggest that you get an engine on the junkyard to save you time and money. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

After sitting that long replace thermostat and refill with new coolant.Also make sure waterpump is turning when car is running. A glazed belt or seized waterpump is a possibility.
