Soo fell into the trap of another suspiciously under priced 90s luxury vehicle.  

Been hooning this 96 stagea for 3 months trouble free.

Till It blew all the water out the other day. Think it's been over heated by previous owner and had some  chemi weld of such other thing put in it to fix it temporoaly.

When I filled the cooling system with rad flush I think it's washed it out and now head gasket is rooted again

Poor stagea.



Will take motor out . Do rear main seal, cam belt, crank and cam seals, water pump, termostat, and valve stem seals whilst it's all apart.

And head gasket

Pulled the head off this pos this morning.

Turns out no 6 has blown round water jacket. Goodly amount of  scunge on top of piston and in head

Will take head into work and give it all a real good clean up and do valve stem seals and whatnot.

May even do an oil change whilst I can get to the oil filter
