I've bought my 97 Astra Sport.
How common is it that the headgasket goes on these?
The reason I ask is that my car has some gunk on the inside of the expansion tank.
There is no gunk under the oil filler cap and no signs of it. I recently bought the car from a dealer and expressed concern.
I made sure I got 3 months warranty and he said if I wasnt happy at anytime within that period I could have a full refund. The car had been stood for a while and that was his explanation for it. It drives really nice and pulls really well, from the condition of it, i'd say its been well looked after.
I have service history up to 48k and its got 71k on the clock.
Should I be worried?
Also when is a cambelt due? I presume that is fairly soon.
