I don't know what the heck is going on. The car is not running like it used to. Having trouble idleing and takes a while to come to life. I have been told that if your coolant has brown bubbles in it that it usually means that the cylinder head is cracked somewhere by the 5th cylinder. I am going to run a compression test to see. But give me any suggestions on what it might be and anything that u think needs to be fixed or replaced. All help is appreciated.

check your oil level too make sure theres no coolant in it might be a crank seal

then again it could be something as simple as the injectors needing to be cleaned when was the last time you did a tune up oil, coolant, plugs.cap etc etc.

yeah, i think i am just going to give it a tune up and see if it stops. If not i think that i have alot of money to spend. My valves need to be reajusted too, but it doesn't feel like that is the problem. To me it feels electrical now.
