Well, good news. I brought the car down today and he thinks it will be pretty easy to fix the hood!
He also listened to the car for 10 seconds and said the head is loose on the #1 or #3 cylinder. He pulled the engine this afternoon and found 2 two head bolts broken. He going to pull both heads off, check the other studs and replace them with the standard studs if all the other look good or use all new chromoly studs. He also going to fix a few oil leaks too so it should be leak free for a day or two!
So far, so good!!
