hi, picked up a cav gsi on a g plate for £150 with 152k on the clock the engine runs nice but has a bad oil leak from the sump now the question is will this engine be affected by porus head problems ... ive just noticed it dont have a core plug so i guess that means its a coscast
its the one on the left
reason i ask is i honestly dont think its the original engine and thought coscasts were in earlyer cars.
what do i need to check on the engine before i decide to keep it as im new to xe's ... give me a ecotec to work on anyday
oh engine number is 20xeJ 1404063043 seems long to me ?? can anyone tell if its a early engine etc by that number or if its suppose to be in a g plate
