    MK 4 2.0 Sri problem

    I had my car serviced last week and the guy asked if it stalled sometimes.
    he said vauxhal to a mod for the ecotec engines.
    where you buy a black box with a filter inside and fit it into the front breather pipe and it will stop the crap getting into the idle control.
    i bought this and fitted it over it weekend 2 min job
    but when i cut the breather pipe it was full of creamy brown stuff which i did my best to remove.
    anyone any ideas what this is
    thanks
    Darren

    Don't want to panic you, but this could either be a big thing or nothing!

    It is normally either...

    1. Normal - I get it a bit on my zlet on the breather at the front of the engine.

    2. Bad news - It could be the start of a head gasket failure.

    Check the inside of the oil filler cap - if there's none here and...

    The coolant in the expansion tank looks ok then it's almost definitely option 1 above!
