Driving with Blown Headgasket
Hello fellow Jeepers,
I have recently discovered that my headgasket has gone on my 4.0L from my '95 YJ. When checking the oil there is an un-healthy amount of coolent, along with slight gurgling sounds right after driving. The engine is also starting to sound like a diesel. I am curious as to what the consequences maybe if I continue driving my YJ in its current state? I am not sure when it may have first gone but i suspect may have already driven a month with it blown. This includes a fair few strenuous hill climbs and off-roading. The engine doesnt appear to ever overheat, and there doesnt seem to be any large amount of fumes coming out on start-up. I am planning on doing this repair ASAP but as things are going I lack the time and alternate transportation to work. When I do replace the headgasket could there be any added problems from the prolonged driving with a headgasket blown?
