Hello to all on here you guys have helped me out before sothanks to all. I am having the tempgauge go above the 1/2 mark and it almost goes in the red. I am guessing here that something is majorlywrong like the head gasket is going. Myfriend had one go on his Honda and he drove it and overheated it. I need some help here as to what is going onand what could cause this problem. Alsowanted to add sometimes I smell gas in the oil I am sure that has something todo with this please advise me. I donâ€™tsmell gas in the oil all the time though. Also sometimes the car takes a while to start like it has a hard startinstead of starting/firing up right away. Okay so here are some things that have been done toeliminate some things.... Spark plugs changed, coolant changed and good, fans andeverything on the car works in perfect order, new distributor, new belts andoil just changed. With that being said can someone please chime in on whatthis could be and what I can do (options) to fix this. The car is 91 se 140k on it in great condition.
