Sure it will start with a blown head gasket. But, if you continue to run this engine with a blown head gasket you will destroy the engine.

Can you drive with blown head gasket?

Not very far. If it's only the head gasket your engine should still run but driving it is a very bad idea. with a blown head gasket the coolant channels wont be sealed and you'll lose it all. without coolant the engine would overheat in a matter of minutes.

If a 1997 Mazda 626 overheated and stalled and now has no compression what could be the problem?

You've probably warped the head and therefore the motor is unable to achieve any compression due to the air escaping out. If you're lucky, it's a machining and replace head gasket; if unlucky, you've done your motor. You've most likely got a blown head gasket. This would have caused overheating as the problem began and worsened, and the no start/lack of compression now. along with head gasket check timing more than likely jumped time if the belt is still good this causes no compression

Can be a defective plug wire, burnt valve, cracked head, or blown head gasket. Replace the spark plug wires. If you still have the miss, have a compression test run on all cylinders. Low compression on cylinder #4 indicates a burnt valve, cracked head, or blown head gasket.

blown head gasket is the usual reason for oil in coolant or radiator. sad part is if you have already replaced intake gasket, u wasted your money as you will have to replace again when you fix head gasket
