A couple of things on my 1.8ts
Ive fitted a new thermostat and the temprature is now as it should be with some minor fluctuations between 75/90, i noticed the cars developed a slight tapping noise coming from the back of the engine bay i changed the oil and if anything its got worse. I've also noticed there seems to be a large build up of oil around the lower hose from the radiator were it comes from the engine. There is also what looks too be like water dripping from the headgasket... Ive checked to see if its coming from anywhere else and i cant see any other source other that the head gasket area. There is no mayo in the oil but theres a build up of sludge on the expansion cap the water looks ok.. could this be the start of the headgasket going?
any ideas advice would be great ..
