guy at AutoZone … this is a clue.
Yeah could be blown. Compression check. If the head gasket is toast, then what damage did it do the head? Over heat warps everything.
Turbo could be ok, or maybe not. Seals and shaft/impeller blades, unbalanced that can be repaired at cost. However the head, and other parts could be shot, if you compression test comes back bad. Get out your check book or credit card, this will not be inexpensive fix.
High temps, white smoke, not starting this sounds familiar to me. Had two of my cars blow out like that. One was the head gasket, one shot the piston through the block. Not fun. Not cheap either. Might have to fix the top half, and the rad/fan, plus the turbo too. Guesstamet…. on my part. IF there is less damage here, after your compression check, less damage to your checkbook/credit card too for you. This will take time to fix.
Stay with John, Robo, TS, few other here who know their stuff about our gems. I listen and keep track of what they say to look out for, what to do, or not do when it comes to issues with the Kappa.
Never listen to the guy at Autozone… check with us err the forum first.
