ive just whipped the head off me sisters nova and u can see the problem straight away
gasket fooked which explains the low compression but also the cause of the fooked gasket??
the gasket waterways are pretty much blocked solid with crap with the odd 3mm ish hole in them ??
whats caused this as it looks like a build up or what??? i think this has been happening for a while as the expantion tank had split and then a week later a hose split and then she cooked it
but the thing is why or what has happened as i fear mine is going the same is there any way of checking mine without rippin the head off ??? as mine is leaking coolant but only out of the pipe joints which are tight??? im confused
