Gunk In Water Bottle
Posted 16 September 2012 - 02:10 PM
However new/newish problem, noticed over the last few weeks some gunk in the water bottle and i am starting to use some water, no gunk on the dip stick or in the oil?
Any ideas as to the fault or impending failure.
Who would be the most local to me in Nottingham to drive it to for an inspection? Any recommendations appreciated.

The main issue is the vvc mechs dont like to be revved so it limits power.
Anything more powerwise and it's solid cams and how deep your wallet is

I've got gunk in my expansion tank also.
Had pressure test & sniffer test done - didn't find anything. Car's running fine.
It's been like this for about 2 years now, so don't despair just yet!

As I said I know very little about the Rover engine, so if those in the know think I'm talking b******s please say so and I'll withdraw the post and remiss about when engines were far simpler to explain and repair!

Took the car to unit4 on Monday of this week, leak in the head gasket, hoped to have car back today,
However after rebuild still leaking water. Hopefully Gavin can sort it on Monday, surprising how you miss the brum pop pop pop when the car is gone
