Head Gasket, Radiator, Timing belt, whats the bloody chance of all 3 rooting up at the same time

Cause and effect my son.

Radiator prolly leaking or plugged causing an overheat that blew the head gasket. Assuming its an OHC (overhead cam) motor, better to replace the "Rubber band" while your there.

Breakage of the rubber band could cause bent valves due to some motors valve interfirance. Dont know of any head gasket/timing belt jobs that are cheap.

Hang in there bud. :)
