Ive now had the car 2 and a half years and was a very reliable runner up untill, well exactly this time last year when my coil pack went. but after that was replaced it was back to its former glory. Now more and more problems are starting to happen. My car really struggles to start and turns over a few times befor firing up. And its one of them things that really gets on my nerves. When it was in the garage i was told it was the head gasket and as everyone knows thats not the cheapest job.
Another problem came yesterday. Whilst starting the car yesterday the car made like a dump valve hiss. This scared me so i turned the car off and left it till the evening and tried it again to see what happend. Well it made a weird clunking sound and then it was running as if it was missing a spark plug. Now its running fine again but dont really feel safe driving any where incase it dont start up again after being parked.
If any one could help or give me some suggestions to either problem id be very gratefull. Oh and its a mk4 1.4 ls
