Default `92 GSR; Can I Cry on Your Shoulder

Last night the 18 year old informs me that the Integra "didn't quite make it
home". It seems that the water pump gave out and she tried to make it home
despite the knocking and pinging that it must have been doing. It overheated
so bad that she said it wouldn't even make heat out of the vents.

She knew better than this - as I've taught all my kids how to take care of
their cars and to not push things if their guages tell them to shut off
their cars.

I checked it out this evening and it crank over but won't start, so at least
it's not locked up. I'm guessing blown head gasket; when I pull a spark
plug, I'll have a sea of green staring up at me. I just hope that the head
isn't warped.

It could be worse even. I spoke with my daughter about it yesterday
and she said that the knocking occured BEFORE the overheating. I'm
guessing that timing jumped and pistons and valves started clashing
until something finally cracked, then the coolant ran out.

What a horrible way to trash a perfectly good V-TEC.
