Help me please !

Post by gardening4js on Tue May 04, 2010 9:56 pm

Hi All

I have a Hi Jet 1300 van which my kids call Noddy (don't ask) anyway have just spent oodles to get it through the MOT and have now been told the Gasket is cracked ! Recently had the thermostat changed and Rad cap but it began overhaeating and now starts then dies !! The garage says it has hydrocarbons in the cooling system so its the head ? I know nothing about mechanics but lots about gardening as thats what I do, I love the van its perfect for work but am I doomed ? is it the big Hi Jet heaven or is their hope ? Crying or Very sad

Hi it definatly sounds like head gasket failier and there are three main possibilities 1,head gasket failier only 2, head gasket failier with warped head 3, head cracked. all can be repaired 1, head off and put back on with new gasket 2, as 1 but skim head while apart 3, can either be like 1 but with new/second hand head or like 2 with some welding. Where in the country are you?
