The customer did this because the head gaskets were leaking oil...

A Subaru that was filled with some form of block sealant. EVERYTHING was clogged up. Coolant passages, radiator, heater core, cross over tube, everything. The car overheated so badly from lack of coolant flow that the engine lost compression.

After a Subaru short block, remanufactured heads, all new hoses, new radiator, and new heater core it got out on the road again.
