My heat was blowing hot then cold then hot then cold today .I have 217k and then it started smoking big time today for the first time..I parked it and i think its the head gasket .Its getting torn down soon and ill let you no what it was.Has this happened to any else out there and how much $ should i expect to pay? Or should i just buy a new motor complete? I dont mind paying as long as it was done right so that im not getting towed in every 2 weeks from here out.I havn't found a dealer or garage yet that can work on these things.Its a 98 1 ton savanna slt loaded and i hate to junk it. but Seeing that i have high miles and the original injecter pump .I havn't done the tranny or anything major yet.I should probly junk it b 4 it nickels and dimes me to death.
