Well its happened again, my second alfa, after losing the engine on my first one, a Spider, my GTV's head gasket has gone. Broke down with overheating and water leaking out from somewhere around manifold, running onto exhaust. Apparently there is crap in the water header tank. Everyone keeps telling me to get rid, but i love my car and want to save it.
I am prepared to spend the money and get it fixed, however i would like to know, are there any implications when the head gasket goes. I'm sure i read on internet somewhere,that there is a chance of warping the head if HG goes,Is this true?
That got me thinking because my Spider HG went too, then a year later, bottom end went..thinks connection?
Appreciate any advice...should i consider recon engine rather than spend a third of what that would cost, only to have repercussions later.
Thanx guys :-(
