Blown headgasket??..hard to fix?
..i just bought a 91 318 about 4 months ago it was in pretty good condition...97k miles...
but i recently noticed that the car would not accelerate properly, and would act differently at low speeds ( 0-15)..
i checked the oil, ..and saw that it was milky..from what i have read ..that indicates a blown head gasket...please correct me if im wrong..
does the head gasket need to be replaced?
about a month ago i replaced the radiator because coolant was leaking and i constantly had to refill..
but i still have to refill the coolant...but no leaks are apparent.
i dont see white smoke coming out, but the oil seems milkish..
Is it hard to replace a head gasket in a 91 318?..i havent worked alot with cars, ..the most ive done is in some autoshop class, we took apart an engine block, but that was a few years ago..
i have the time to do it.. and i heard its pretty expensive to have a shop do it ..($ 800-1,000)
should i try to do it myself, or take it to the shop?..how hard is it..( access to parts / time-wise / expertise )...
this is my first BMW....please help..thanks !!
