Not a Intrepid but maybe somebody can help

My friend has a 1994 Plymouth Voyager with the 3.0 V-6. It blew a hole in a freeze plug and all the coolent came out and he blew a head gasket. We noticed the water in the radiator ,when the engine would crank over, the water would come gushing out. So we changed the head gaskets and now it won't start. We have spark and are getting fuel. but we are still getting water spewing out of the radiator. and sugestens? Thanks.

did ya check the compression in each cylinder, if the block is cracked you will get low compression, and either the compressed air entering the cooling system or oil. Did ya notice any puffs or air coming out of the Oil fill hole?? or dip stick tube??

You just changed the head gasket? Usually when the heads overheat they warp (damn aluminum!)....just changing the head gasket won't do it, it won't seat/seal right. You probably are going to have to replace the heads....or one of them....

That really depends on how long they drove it with a blown head gasket. I drove my New Yorker for 3 months with a blown gasket and my aluminum head still wasn't warped (2.2L Turbo)
