93 ZJ, trying to get to throw codes.

My buddy has a 93ZJ, 4.0/AW4/231

I think he blew the head gasket today, as it's running really rough, and there's some steam out the exhaust.

My question is, I turned the Key on/off 5 times, finally leaving it in the on position. The CEL blinked 5 times, stopped, then 5 more times after that.. This is the correct way to check the codes, right?

I'm just wondering if there is a page I can look at somewhere that will tell me exactly what this code means, or if i'm even getting it to throw codes correctly.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I thought 55 was the "end of codes" code, but I have a Renix so what the hell do I know.

Re: 93 ZJ, trying to get to throw codes.

You're right jrock, I found some info on this earlier tonight.

It's weird that it sounds like it's running on 4 cylinders, but yet it won't throw a code..

Gonna pull the head tomorrow after work and see what we're dealing with.

If it's running like crap and you've got steam coming out of the tail pipe, stop running it. Chances are the head gasket is done, and if you keep running it, it wouln't be too long before the engine is done too...
