Hijet 1000, overheated. Oil in coolingsystem

Post by jeremiah1992 on Tue Dec 15, 2015 6:19 pm

Hi all, today my hijet overheated. Coolingfluid is black from oil and feels dirty and muddy. Car still drives great, what to do? Clean coolant and drive or fix headgasket?

I would say fix head gasket, changing coolant is not going to solve anything, will just end up back where you started...with same question! Christmas not a good time for it to happen but better fixed now than bodge it and end up with an even bigger problem.

I will start repairing in a minute, problem should be a leak between coolingchannel and oilchannel, im going to remove the head and bring it for a checkup under pressure and straightness, when the head is still good i will prder a headgasket and drivebelt and fix the engine good for a long time.
