Car
Car went into the garage today.
Was a little ill.

Verdict? Cracked Cylinder head. Most likely. Would take engine dismantling or something to check.
Their suggestion was take it somewhere to part exchange asap, and get a new car.

Joy.

Cracked head?!?! Eeek.

It really is the season of car-death.

Oh well, am in pub tonight. I wounder how much of a headfuck an engine transplant is with a ford zetec?

Shall sound find out.

Good-ish news is that you shouldn't need to take the engine out to replace the head. And it should only be a couple of hours work by someone competent.

Need to borrow a car boss?

I'm ok, work's a train ride away.
It's apparantly drivable, and 'should be ok' but will only get worse.
