I bought a 2.5rs 3 weeks ago. I put some money into it. And now the head gasket just blew out and i have no money or no car. Any tips for the Noob?

So i bought a 2.5rs real clean couple mods. So i get it and decide to put some money into the engine just replacements. And then the head gasket goes out and i have no money to replace it cuz i was to busy replacing everything else. Any tips for the noob?

So ive always wanted a WRX. I finally find one but its a 2.5rs with a WRX hood so i buy it from this car lot it checks out and then i put some money into replacing some stuff..then the head gasket goes out and i have no money or a car. Any tips? thanks.

so i bought this 2.5rs got it checked out before i bought it made all the precautions i possible could and then replaced as many things as i could. Then the head gasket goes out and im out of money and out a car. Any tips? please and thanks.

Thanks for the helpful advice. I have a job. And im working on replacing the head gasket. I just thought since im a noob at subaru and cars in general maybe someone on this site could give me some helpful advice. Such as: Is it bad to drive on a misfiring headgasket?
How and Why did the head gasket go out?
Was it my driving?
Anything helps even if its not about my current problem. Im reading up on my car and trying to learn. But i thought maybe some actual people could give me some advice.

whats HG's...I thought that was the reason i just have bad luck cuz the compression test came up better then average but it does have 95,000miles. thanks

Well, without the seal from a properly-working HG, you can be looking at leakage of fluid into the cylinders and possibly combustion loss issues.

You want to get it fixed.

I have another question for you, the previous owner put a coolant system in. Should i take it out?

I hate those pesky coolant systems. I remove them all. Less hassle, and my coolant bill is cheaper. Air cooled FTW!
