Hi

It does sound like the head gasket. Its not a really big job-its deff worth repairing so dont scrap it. A garage would prob charge aound £250 to do it.

HI

I am near Maidstone. If you give me all the details of the car I can get the required parts from a mate at Piper's Fiat Maidstone, come to you and do the job cheaper than that if you are interested?

I can do it for £250 plus parts which I will provide all papers for and I get good prices on parts. I came come to you or anywhere you want.
