Hi,
got a pretty decent J-reg Calibra for sale. Its got about 11 months MOT and until recently ran like a dream. It's got just over 130k on the clock and I think the head gasket has gone. After about 5 minutes or so it starts to emit clouds of steam and the water level drops.

Looking for around £450. The car can be driven and will need to be collected from Bedford.

Cheers, Rob.

yeah u would headgaskets are a piece of piss to do and not expensive

even if the head is porous it is only bout nother £100 and then it would b sorted :)

Either fix it and sell it for more or sell it to someone to fix

Would myself but i cant afford the insurance on one of these beauties :(
