    Welcome to the forum

    We will assist as best as we possibly can

    Did you ever determine why the engine was overheating? Was there head gasket failure? If so was it tested correctly???

    i bought the car from a finance reposesion company that didnt hav a scooby about cars
    went all the way up 2 wolverhampton started the car up and noticed it sounded like there wernt a lot of compression
    started driving it and it was getting hot so just thought @ i aint got a lot 2 lose ill just keep going lol
    anyway it finally stopped 45 miles in 2 the journey

    the head needed 42 thou 2 make it flat again
    + 8 inlet valves and machining

    So............ ive decided to get a complete engine
