    92 with a 22re 160000 miles supposed to have a blown head gasket. Says it wont start know. Turns over good ( but wont hit) thinks the plugs are fouled due to the head gasket. What do you all think? I have never heard the truck run. Thinking about buying it but I am a little hesitant. Whats your opinion Thanks for reading.

    Sorry man, but i have no idea what your asking?

    No truck is "supposed" to have a blown head gasket. I take it the one your looking at does?

    I dono man, i would not buy a truck that does not run, for what ever reason. If i did, i would hopefully know what the problem is myself, and be able to fix it myself.

    Take the radiator cap off and turn the motor over. If the HG is blown, the radiator will look like Ol' Faithful.

    The common problem with the 22r series motor is the right side timing chain guide breaking causing the chain to rub through the timing chain cover and into the water pump. This can be checked by removing the the valve cover and shining a light down the right side of the chain.
