So, with the tool kit we set off on a rescue mission upto sunny Dawlish about 20 miles from Home with the thought of a doomed head gasket. On route we had another call from Sister in law to say the car had now started after it was refilled with water and had been successfully driven back Home, only about 2 miles from where it had expired.
When we arrived, it was sat on the driveway with a big puddle of rusty water underneath, so I topped it up again and as quick as the water went in, there was a steady flow from the area of the cambelt cover. At first I thought head gasket, but the engine started without any problems, and ran very smoothly with no evidence of oil and water mixing, so I suspect the leak to be coming from the waterpump.
As a temp measure (excuse the pun) I bunged some "Bars leaks" stuff in the coolant system, and the leakage appears to have stopped. But then it came to light that the car has not been serviced in the 3 years Sister in law has owned it So, I think the poor abused motor is due a once over, and I'm planning on doing a full engine service in 2 weeks time.
What do you think chaps? am I right is suspecting the waterpump? and what is the car in question
