    How did you guess....My boss went up to NY Times Square for the ball drop and came back sick...
    After a week or 2 of getting everybody else sick...I got it...Gee Thanks...

    BTW...did I leave out any other possible failures for the headgasket ?

    Piston Slapper, any one of the answers could be the cause of the condition you described especially if the tech working on the engine had no idea what he was doing.
    Am I close?

    Question #27

    Jimmy is 15, rides a bicycle and was given a new trimmer for his birthday
    Judy is 16, just got her driver's license and get's to use a push mower
    Andy is 19, has a dirt bike and was given a new chainsaw for his birthday
    Melanie is 30, rides a Vespa and just bought a new lawn aerator
    George is 40, rides a Goldwing and fittingly bought a Honda lawn tractor

    Which OPE piece is likely to fail first?

    Jimmy's trimmer. He doesn't understand the concept of mixed fuel.

    Very close and your concept is correct. But there's a deadlier combo where the error is actually intuitive.

    It's not a joke and it does happen a lot to a specific group of people.
