    The head gasket has gone on my car :mad:

    Ive only just rebuilt the cam chain with new sprockets chain and guide rails , and a full service . So now the HG has gone .

    Sometimes I hate my car

    The car didnt over heat , It looked for coolant on thursday , I topped it up with 1 liter , then today it was looking for coolant again , when I could see no leaks I checked the oil cap and it was covered in moyonaise coloured goo .

    The gasket failing may explain the cars loss of MPGs , its only managed 23 /24 mpg this week .
