well maybe you blew the timing belt or the piston or bent the valves Could be you have a badly cracked head or a failed head gasket that is leaking. Or if the car has a zillion miles on her, the pistion rings could be shot. Yeah, you don't really care why; fact is you're looking for a new engine anyway, sorry to say Phil
