C20XE - porous head
No loss, or apparant loss of power.
No white residues in oil
Uses lots of coolant, and is possibly steaming alot out the back (hard to say as its always wet up here)
seems to be going through oil too...
my mates nova did that and it was the head gasket.
the heater stopped working aswell, because it was using the water.
you wont loose any power, is there any gunk in the headder tank?
ehen you say out the back do you mean out the exhaust or the back of the engine?
the heater hasnt stopped working... but im using it on full blast hot to take heat off the engine as its fan arrives tomorrow (had to be machined to fit)
> and is possibly steaming alot out the back
sounds like an unhappy headgasket
the coolant tank when filled seems dark... but that maybe the dirty tank..... there is no gunk..
steam out the exhaust i meant
i'll give the tank a going over tomorrow... looking for brown sludge etc...

ALSO - it seems to make a whistling noise when accelerating... and it now very 'tappety' on cold start up... louder than it was and louder than a normal c20xe..
there is no smoke tho.
