NOT in my goddamn oil cap!!!!
Went to check my oil / plugs etc yesterday as my car suddenly began running like a bag o' spanners. (only running on 3 cylinders on tickover, etc)
Went to pull my dipstick out and my oil's contaminated! I'm absolutely gutted!
I've just spent £500 to get my MK3 through it's ruddy MOT so I've come to the conclusion it's got to be done.
I've got a mechanic prepared to do the work in his own time, and I can get the head skimmed at a local cnc cad/cam place as my buddy works there and has done looooads before.
I have one question to you knowledgable folks though - I've got an X16XEL engine, but is there any better gasket sets available except the standard VX/GM ones? I'm sure I've heard of 'reinforced' or 'kevlar' gaskets that are supposed to be better than the ones GM have to offer. This may be utter poppycock but just thought I'd ask first!
Cheers chaps =)
