Hello, Ive searched throught the forums and allthough there are forums about this none of them seem to match my problems exactly so was wondeirng if anyone can help.
I have an 1.6 8v and as usuall the thermostat has packed in, in addition to this I have recently been loosing a lot of water and have had white fumes out of the back, there is also traces of water in the exhaust and mayo under the oil cap. I do not use my car for short journeys.
My car has also had problems starting recenctly and im not sure if this is because of the head gasket or a seperate problem. When I go to start the car it will make one sound then cut out, usuually if I give it a minute and then try it works. I thought this was the battery but thought I would see if it might be connected to the other problems I have.
Does this sound like the head gasket and if yes what sort of price would I be looking at as I have just spent £550 on other bits for the car!
Hope you can help
