There is antifreeze/water in the oil, so at least a head gasket, and head being sent out for check. It turns out cheaper to put the new engine in and not worry about it. I can rebuild the other one as time allows. The Turbo line did blow, and the car has zero compression. It will not start. They are looking at it today, but feel it will be nothing but trouble down the road. I do not want that.
With everything on the new engine, AC, water pump, pullies, power steering, turbo, cat, starter all being new, it is a much easier switch over.
I dealt with getting it loaded and unloaded Saturday, Sunday and yesterday. Not a lot of fun when it does not run.
