Default Volvo 1996 850

I have a Volvo 96 850 wagon and it turns over but will not start! I have antifreeze coming through the tailpipe! Is this a blown head gasket or water-pump problem? Thanks!

Default Volvo 1996 850 Wter pump or Head Gasket

If you have water/antifreeze in your cylinders, it most likely a head gasket, or at it's worst a cracked block, the water pump just delivers it. Easy job just be very cautious of your timing marks...I just replaced my 1995 850, and my 1998 v70 head gaskets not a bad job at all if your mechanically inclined...if not you are looking at big bucks as usual.
