Spider engine coolant and suspension problems
I have got a 96 spider and I suspect that it is about to cost me a lot of money. I have only had it for about 6 months and in that time have had to changet the variator as well as all of the oil seals. However the latest problems are, firstly thatm recently I noticed that the engine coolant was very low and that after topping up still seemed to be using it up pretty quickly. Is this likely to be a leaking head gasket?
Also the rear suspensions seems to knock loundly over the many bumps in the wonderful British roads, I have had someone look at it but they said that the shocks were fine, any other posibilites, bushes maybe? Something certianly isn't right.
Also there is a tapping sound coming from the engine sounds like the tappets, I know it isn't the variator, anyhting else it could be?
Oh and the exhaust has just gone as well!
