Won't be driving my car for awhile

Something is seriously wrong with it

valve not seating properly, headgasket possibly going bad... running lean as hell.

Who knows

I have no idea...It just won't go. I mean, I'll be driving and I'll come to a stop sign or stoplight and it barely goes. My dad's gonna check it, possibly, this weekend.

Well after talking this over with my dad it looks like we are going to be doing this ourself.

What I am thinking right now is splitport.

I have some people to talk to and questions to ask and some prices to get but that is what I am leaning towards now

I doubt your headgasket went. What year was it?
