Coolant and oil leak


have a compression test done as the bubbles suggest a blown head gasket or cracks. That will account for the overheating. The oil leak may be from the head gasket or cracks.

Coolant is leaking like a sive fromt he head gasket, how hard is this to fix?


If you have no damage to the heads, like warping, it is not to hard. Requires removing the heads putting a new gasket on and put the heads back on. Make sure you torque the bolts to the right torque according to the factory specs. Do not reuse the head bolts. Wouldn't hurt to take the heads to a machine shop and having them cleaned and rebuilt.
