Blown Head gasket? - '02 Grand Am

Hey everyone. Thanks for reading this and helping me out. I have a 2002 Pontiac Grand am GT. When i get into my car and first start it up for about 5-10 seconds it hesitates and bogs down but will stop and run perfectly while I'm driving until i cut it off and wait about 15 minutes then it will do it again even when it's hot. I'm thinking it's early symptoms of a blown head gasket? Any help would be awesome. Thanks again!

    Are you losing coolant and do you see steam out of the tailpipe? Those would be two signs of a possible head gasket failure. Otherwise it doesn't seem likely based on your description alone.
  • I am actually losing coolant. And I'm smelling the sweet smell. I will have to check my compression.
