    poss cracked head the cars not mine

    i had a new head gasket fitted last week (it was pressure tested and skimmed) and every thing was fine till just now the car has just started spewing white steam and coolent out of the exhaust am i right in thinking the head gasket has failed big time or the heads just cracked taking it back to the garage on monday but just wondering does any one know of a good place to get a recon head for a 98/99 1.4 16v ecotec if the worst is confirmed

    Well when my friend had his HG done on his corsa sport 1.4 16v, it still spewed a bit of crap out for a few miles

    Was put down to coolant being in the exhaust silencer and boiling off slowly. Just see how it goes is what i say
