I am new to the site, and thought I would give it a go as i have today had bad news!
the coolant light came up on the dash board, so i promptly filled it up with coolant. when i turned the car on, the coolant then proceeded to drip out the bottom of the car. thinking it was probably a split pipe, new radiator etc, an engineer who looked at the car has come back to me saying the head gasket needs replacing, will take about 4 days to fix and will cost about £950.
does anyone have any experience of this? and can anyone advise if this price is in the right ball figure for a head gasket replacement if this is the problem.
unfortunatley i'm not a mechanic, and have no idea about mechanics of the car apart from the basics, so any advice help would be extremely helpful.
