Exclamation I think everything got worse.

So tonight my car really got worse...I let the car sit for a while then came back to start it up and it started bucking..and kept shutting itself off. I check the oil and the car has oil..I even put 2 Quarts just to make sure. I gapped and replaced my sparkplugs but the car is doing the same thing. It starts up fne but when I put it in Neutral and then it bucks..then shuts off and while driving the car Jerks and Jerks and eventually turns off. Also...coolant is spilling everywhere..and I mean everywhere on the top of the engine is filled with coolant. I had a full tank of coolant, then i tried to rev the engine and next thing coolant alert came on, we to take a look at the coolant was everywhere. i feel like I am going to be spending a lot of money to fix this.

Just a guess, head gasket. I hope for you it isn't.

Yeah I was told about that not too long ago. But would the head gasket cause the car to do what it did where it kept cutting off, even in neutral?

Here are my thoughts:

1. Leak in head gasket to cooling system
2. Antifreeze pulled into cylinder on intake
3. compression and or ignition send hot exhaust / burning fuel into cooling system. Coolant sprays everywhere.

It might run initially until coolant got sucked in. When you rev'd it it would get worse.

Told you what about a headgasket ( it was leaking) did you re-torque the bolts or just let it go?

I had the car retorqued when I first got the car but I haven't done it since. The leak is coming from a Broken manifold stud.
