hi there, had my coupe (2.2bertone) for about 2months now and just giving it a clean today and noticed a bit of mayo around the top of the oil filler cap, also on the dipstick as well.
I'm not familiar with the car so not noticed if its losing water - dont think so (wouldnt know where to look anyway! LOL!).
i've a couple of questions for you guys:
1 - are head gasket failure common on 2.2 engine (its a 51 reg 54k)
2 - the previous owner did about 500miles last year - youl this be a factor in having damp/condensation in engine? (car sat around for long periods of time)
3 - does the cold weather mean you get possible water in engine?
4 - does moisture in engine burn off with time?
5 - is it best to get it to garage asap for diagnosis?
cheers for any help,
