1999 Oldsmobile 88 Questions
My car had hydrolock on #2 cylinder. After replacing all gaskets and lower intake manifold car run for about 30 seconds then died. Pulled spark plug from #2 cylinder and it is full of fuild. Upper manifold looks good. What else could it be?
I went to start my car heard loud pop and engine locked up. I can free it manually and hear two light pings. Sounds like push rods. There is no water in oil or any leaks. It never over heated. It ran great. Am I on the right track with the push rods?
