Hi

how is this done? i have yellow mayo stuff under the oil cap, even after a long spirited driving its still there?? i have also notice the car is not very efficient, it seems to drink a lot of petrol. I have been getting 30-40miles per £10 (average town driving) any ideas???

thanks

If you suspect a head gasket fault then don't guess on it.

To be 100% sure, you need to get a Sniff test or leak test done.

You can buy these kits relatively cheap ot get a garage to do it- takes 5 mins tops to do.

a little mayo like substance under the cap is nothing really to worry about.

Get the test done and also be advisable to get a diagnostic check done in case there are any other issues with regards to the fuel economy prob.
