There are many things that carse overheating. If the head gasket is blown, it will produce white smoke and miss pretty bad. When does the car run hot? When idling or when you're driving?

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.

In some cases, a car with a blown head gasket can be driven. However, it can lead to some bigger car problems down the line.
