    Picked up current G/C about 10 years ago and had no major repairs until now. Pulling a trailer this past summer I notice boiling sound under the hood when I stopped for gas. Turns out the reservoir was boiling but the car wasn't overheating. Head gasket right? Also strong smell of clutch burning, but since this is an automatic I assumed it was the fan clutch? Since then I've removed the engine and heads. I'm new at this, so I wanted to share what I'm doing and also read through the other related threads to learn what i can.
