    My life is a

    you'll want to fix it. If you have any mechanical skills (and a torque wrench) I suggest going at it yourself b/c there's a lot of work involved.

    its safe to drive it home to then work on it. . . .not the best idea to drive for long because a collapsed lifter can bend pushrods among other unfriendly things.

    i wouldn't really drive around with it for 2 weeks. you can just do lifters while youre in there as long as your pushrods arent bent. pushrods are cheap so if you have the money its certainly a might as well, especially if you plan on doing a cam swap later on.

    Not crazy that "motor flush" crap is essentially kerosene. Just do'nt drive it with any of these in the crankcase. But you all prolly know that.
