how do you see a hole in the head but still drive it?? :dunno:

this requires pics of said hole...:confused:

but if you are getting combustion pressures in the cooling system, then i suggest taking it apart to further inspect.

do you have vanos on the 93?? (never can remember when that started....)

if not, then it's even easier.

Yes, vanos started on the '93 YM. Got one. :D

We want pictures of the crack you can see.

A hot/pressurized upper hose and cold lower means the thermostat isn't opening or the radiator is clogged. DO NOT put Bars Leak in it.

Put as much BARS in it as you can, that will fix it alright........:rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl: Writing proper paragraph's would be a plus for you. Think about your ? so you don't ask stupid ones or sound stupid. Do a little searching also before you ask.:D Have a nice day
