I bought this car from my cousin, it was his first car and there was alot of problems with it... More than I expected there to be. When I first had it, there was an overheating problem but I couldn't identify what the issue was until I saw coolant leaking from the heater core component. when I was taking the hoses off from the back of the engine to the firewall and I pulled the weld right off of the heater core. Then the next thing to go wrong, was when the coolant started to drop into the oil pan. I figured it was either the head gasket or the lower intake manifold gasket. Luckily, it was the intake manifold gaskets so I didn't have to go all the way down to the heads. I have just recently gotten a custom exhaust with glass packs. I am currently at a standstill, however, because I do not know what to do next with the car. If you have any suggestions feel free to email me anytime.
