Using coolant, rough cold start, blowing white smoke. I think this car is done. The car runs and drives perfect not sure what I should do with it. Any suggestions? The body is good, engine runs fine with aforementioned issues, everthing else works. No engine codes, only one body code. What should I do with it? 165000

Re: 97 Head gasket
Hydrolock is when enough coolant gets into the cylinder that it fills it when at TDC. Coolant, being a liquid is not compressible so something has to give as seen below. Rod broke and came through the side of the block.
