Hi guys,:thumbs: I'm new to this site and I have a problemo with my TS. It quickly overheated, had immense back pressure in the water and the water was quite oily too. Is the problem as I suspect, has the Cylinder head gasket gone or could it be water pump or thermostat problems? Any replies would help. :cry:

Sounds like the head gasket.

Thermostat or waterpump wound not result is oily water.

Having said that, a failed waterpump could result in a failed head gasket.
A completely failed radiator could also have the same effect, but not quite as quick.

+1 to David C (as always :D) ... just don't drive it until you've got it all sorted other wise it will get ALOT worse ...




(if you do drive it and destroy the engine and decide to break the car can I have the headlamps :thumbs:)
