If it is your head gasket, you're pretty much screwed. Nothing you can do can buy you extra time.

Couldn't agree more.

Want picture proof? Here is a EJ25D I recently did a head gasket & timing job on.

The first picture is the head gaskets. See how much "gunk" is built up on them. The head gasket should be about as thick as a coin...and its literally as thick as 10 quarters stacked together in this picture.

The second picture is of the water jackets around the pistons. Now just imagine that stuff building up in the more narrow coolant passages....

Get the point?

NOTE : this stuff has the consistency of fresh dog poop...
