Head Gasket Time?

Post by Jackracing on Sat Jan 24, 2015 5:18 pm


Nasty sludge in oil filler cap of 2lt zetec

More than average white smoke on start up
Some oil dripping out of the exhaust collector

Sounds like the H/G is on the way mate. Any sign of it pressuring the cooling system if so I cant reccomend an exhaust gas detector kit enough ! very good bit of kit.

One experience I had with the cosworth engine. It had similair symptoms as yours and was only drawing water into the cylinder and not pressurising. After changing the headgasket twice I discovered some corrosion on the head face near to the fire ring that turned out to be the cause.

Thanks Ian

It has not been given a good run since October, my only hope is that it is a build up of condensation.

I will give it a blat down the road next week and see what happens
