Heya guys! Long time no speak.
My head gasket has blown on a legendary scale. Had no heating the other day so checked the water. Empty. Filled up and went to work next day. Knew it had leaked from somewhere so had a look at it while I was at work (Kwik fit). Again had no water so filled it up again to look for the Leak and nothing was obvious. Pulled off the oil cap and to my horror, there was chicken soup flying around on my cams!
No car for a week
I've booked next week off to replace the gasket.
Now, I've got a fair few tools including male and female torx sockets, but is there anything I may need that I might not have, being a tyre, exhaust and brake fitter?
Never pulled an engine apart so it could go horribly wrong....lol!
It's an X20XEV on a 1998-1999 astra G.
