As title - just wondering if there would be any major issues driving a car with a blown head gasket?
Some of u may recall my recent threads about loss of coolant - Im 99% sure the HG has gone. Mayo in cap (poss just condensation), mayo sometimes on dipstick (more worrying), major coolant loss, definite smell of oil in coolant tank, definite signs of oil contamination in coolant tank, cold coolant in tank after driving, fans never get as hot as they should.......Do I need to go on?
Anyway I booked the car in yesterday - but due to my shift pattern the best I could do is Mon 12 Feb. Getting cambelt kit (and ancillaries) fitted (parts supplied by me) and them to supply & fit HG kit, bolts, etc etc, coolant, oil & filter change.
Anyway I digress ....the reason for this thread... Would there be any major damage in running the engine for a few more weeks with the above symptoms ?
Admittedly it hasnt fully blown as the oil/coolant mixture isnt dramatic yet....but I guess only time will tell.
Any advice much appreciated
