Re: Head gasket failure
had it up my local mechanics today,he had a good look round it,explained the headgasket woes,had a good look round and a sniff!!!,told me to watch it for a couple of weeks as it's under warranty as nothings showing yet,seems to think the gunk is from an old repair as it's all over the expansion tank yet it's using no water,he was much more concerned about the cambelt and told me to get it done soonest,he quoted me £100 labour plus the parts which i was well impressed with,looking at the Alfa workshop prices for cam and balancer looks like it's going to be about £250 all in!!!
Water pump was apparantly changed at 59000 along with the belts,variator is quite as a mouse,should I still be changing it?
