Thanks for the advice. I'm going to let them look at it and take it from there. Since it stalled in the middle of center city in rush hour traffic I did manage to start it after a few attempts and pulled over to the side road and immediately shut it off. I'm just hoping I didn't damage the engine after it flooded with oil. Oh, and when I shut it down for good the thermostat was still cold. Could there still be head gasket damage?

Can fixing this be as simple as cleaning the cylinders, replacing the VCG (due anyway), possibly a new thermostat, and topping off the oil?

To add insult to injury, both my kidney grills fell out too as the clips snapped due to the cold. It's a bad day.
