    Exclamation 03 Corsa Sxi Head Gasket Help Please???

    Guys i need some help with the corsa,,,,

    What are the signs that my head gasket is on its way out,ive noticed lately that the car is quite smokey when driving,well not like blue smoke more of a condension smoke,if that makes sense,and just checked the oil from the main cap and the is a bit of junk on the cap?

    I serviced the car not too long ago with all Vauxhall parts and oil so am abit stumped!

    Hope you guys can help or advise me on this,

    Cheers

    stop worrying

    sounds like usual cold climate scenario

    the "smoke" u see is probably just steam caused by condensation build up

    the mayo in the rocker cover will be again caused by condensation - remember as its so cold it takes even longer for any built up condensation to be removed so best off giving it a good regular drive or better still dump the oil , remove the cam cover and fish out the mayo, change filter and fill with fresh oil

    providiing there is no cross contamination with oil and water then just ensure the car gets a good drive at least once a week to get rid of the built up moisture in the crankcase

    ensure any crankcase ventilation measures are in place and blockage free.
