does that mean the head gasket went bad?

it was milky green


I checked the cap and don't see any new goo on it

but I think the intake manafold is leaking again that is a 400$ repair


just to get this car upto standard i would have to spend 2900$
That is why I think getting an SS would be a better idea Smile I see one for sale for 2900 obo

you can see if the intake gaskets have been done before. If you look where the lower was done, it can be a silver color or metallic color. I mean why not try to do yourself. Its really not super difficult to do. It takes more time to clean up the gasket surfaces and chase the thread holes with a rethread then it does to bolt unbolt ect.

it looks to be leaking around the sensor on the left side. the one with the 3 wire yes i had the intake manifold replaced with the newer spec dorman as well as the elbows with the metal version..

That is MAP sensor, which is a grommet and an O-ring. Pretty sure you can get a whole new kit for 16 bucks.

well the engine is still working and trasmission


Transmission Pressure Control Solenoid might be no good i suspect

but i have to manually select each gear starting from 2 then pick 3 at 35mph then pick 4 at 55-60mph

i put about 1,000 miles since the issues started (ran low on fluid ) i know i'm playing with fire but i got AAA...

reverse gear works fine

i only have 4200$ saved so far
