So i recently found out that I have a leak on my head gasket. It will blow white smoke when cold and a little when accelerating hard, other than that it doesn't do it. This is a recent development within the last month. I took it to the mechanic and he did a pressure test to confirm that is the problem. Although I have no overheating problem (the temp gauge stays about 1/4 the way up never seems to get much hotter than that) the car does eat up a little coolant.
Now here is where it gets a little odd. I drove her for about 30 miles mostly highway and when I got home and parked while unloading the back end I noticed an almost pumpkin like smell coming off the back end. This is the first time I have smelled this particular smell and it didn't seem like it was coming anywhere from the front end just the back. I could smell it in the cargo area as well. Anyone else have this problem or know why it's smelling like this.
Also I really want to do a swap from the EA 82 to EJ 22, I would love to know the best way to go about this and how much the engine itself would cost me. I do have a mechanic that can install it, but I would also like to know about how much you guys think it would run me.
Thanks so much for reading and your input!
