Lately i've noticed an increase in engine temp. my coolant light came on the other so checked it, cap broke (Grrr) and couldn't see any coolant in her, topped up with about 250mls.
checked fluid, looks fine however engine oil filler has some evaporated water deposits and a slight 'milky' look to it. engine oil is fine, still nice and clear.
no visible oil around head (cover removed) and no evidence of water on the floor.
fearing the worst, is my head gasket on the way out? looking at Ecat, which ones require replacing.
car in in a couple of weeks for Gearbox and clutch so will have to get that sorted as well.
Are these prone to going? i guess like any other car yes, but not come across a thread yet.
