Guys! I bought a replacement engine with 112K miles from the '94 GS donor. Guaranteed to be a good engine with a 30 day warranty but now that I saw under the exhausts manifold.... Looks like residue from maybe a blown head gasket? It's not coming from the valve cover but from where the head meets the block.

The oil wasn't milky and the coolant level was normal. There was some milkiness-chocolate looking oil in the spark plug tubes but I believe it was from sitting out in the open with the hood up and moisture mixing with the leaky tube seal oil.


Coolant was clean and green, oil in the block was clean, valve cover didn't have any milk/ foam in/under the cap. I didn't suspect anything until I saw the residue on the back of the block.

I guess it is possible it overheated? Though the damage didn't bust the radiator from my inspection and it wouldn't have stopped the car form driving anything else could have caused it to overheat like a stuck thermostat or a kinked rad hose or jammed fans.



we'll see. The swap should be done by Friday so I'll know more then I guess. If it comes down to it, I can have the head and block resurfaced and throw on a new head gasket and get some of my money back.

(not me talking)
