    If you look at the oil filler cap, do you have a white creamy substance on it at all? Sounds like the head gasket is failing.... Cannot be sure, but maybe someone else will confirm...

    sounds like you could have a slight leak on a water pipe check the pipes in that area that go to the stat etc, probably not the head gasket as it is not using the water on a run Cheers Mark Astraparts ..

    Is the floor wet under the car when stood still after a run.
    Also the small pipes from the water resevoir can crack and leak,
