FAO Cally/Cav Turbo owners....... HELP!!!
Right guys n girls... I really need your help with this... I'm havin a bit of a panic
On the way to work today i noticed that i had allot of white stuff coming from behind and also, beneath the bonnet once I stopped. After closer inspection I found that a pipe that goes from the middle right side of the engine to the heater matrix had got a leak... Water was everywhere... But anyhow, I managed to cut the pipe enough so that it went back on minus hole, and filled it up with 2 litres of water... All seemed well... But whilst putting tolls away I noticed some white smoke coming from the exhaust...
Now it hadn't one this before.. I thought best try to get to work, and once I pulled off the whit cloud still seemed to be there... So in a panic again, I pulled over and had a look... The pipes where all fine, although it did seem like there was some steam coming from the radiator.. Possibly porous I guess... The car still had a bit of whit stuff coming from the exhaust.. So, I called the AA... fearing the worst of a possible head gasket failure.... He did a pressure test on the water system and also a head gasket failure test. The pressure test was fine, and the head test was spot on... The blue dye liquid didn't change colour at all..
So he asks me to drive down the road so he could follow.. And low and behold a cloud of white appeared behind me as I drove.. So I pulled over, and the AA chap did another head test (which the car still passed without a problem) and said sound like head gasket failure and wanted to toe me to the aa service centre.. I needed to get to work so I said no to that.. He said, ok, but he'd follow me to work... No here the thing I just canít get my head around... All the way back, nothing came from the back end at all... Once i got to work the AA guy just couldn't understand it... anyway, he went on his way..
I left it for a bit so it would cool down.. and started it up to check it again..
Let the car run for a bit and water droplets were coming out of the exhaust, and eventually, a tiny bit of white started to appear... and then 2 mins later had completely cleared...
I tried this 2 more times, and eventually took it for a run around the business park... And nothing at all. The car was back to normal... (i.e. No white stuff from the back of it....)
Anyone got an idea what the fook has gone on.....???????
