I apologize for this boring question, but I'm a family guy who has managed to get 280K on this lovely D16y8 before the head blew. It's overheated several times now and I know the 3rd cylinder is out. I'm assuming the head is blown but hope the block is still good. My two kids don't care about hp and I drive it to last; I just love that this car never lets me down and that everything still works on it (errr, until recently anyway). Should I take the head to the machine shop or buy a new one? Either way, what do I need to buy along with the head? Should I get a new engine? If so, what should I swap it with? I'm not putting a ton of money into this...and I've been urged to get new car. But I've turned a lot of bolts in this one and like working on it. Don't get mad but I'll be driving my Volvo with 368K on it until I can get this done.
