Yes, a machine shop is the best way.
A warp can be so slight that you won't see it with out the proper equipment.
Just make sure to tell them, you want an estimate before anything is done to it.
If it is warped, they can do a shave to straighten it.
They can also check your valves and valve seats while it is in there.

I would highly recommend that you go to the local parts store and purchase a Haynes Manual for your vehicle, they are around $ 25.00 Canadian. As when you do your head gasket you wil need to remove your timing belt and this is a procedure in it's self. then you will neen certain torque settings. This manual will provide you with all of this information step by step. they are designed for the do it yourselfer. They also cover many other issues that you may come across through out the ownership of your vehicle. I know that the last ting you need is an added exspence but these manuals are well worth the small investment. There is a site that you can find hrough google search that you can find factory service repair manuals for your vehicle, however they only have a layout for a 4 cylinder engine in there drawings and this is alot different then the 6 cylinder. As the procedure for repairs is totally different. I hope that this helps and that you take the time to rate any solutions you receive. Good Luck.

SOURCE: lotus elise 2005 fob and key does not work

Re-synchronize the FOB if the problem is with just one key.

1. Hold down both buttons simultaneously until the fob LED goes out. (10 seconds)

2. Release both buttons -- the LED should come on and stay on.

3. Press the larger fob button for a second, and the LED should flash.

IF re-synchronization doesn't work, you may have to replace the fob. Call customer service with your PIN (on the key-card that came with the keys). IF you don't have the PIN, then you need to call customeor service to confirm/register your ownership of the car.

If the keys are re-synchronized and it still doesn't work:

Re-program.

1. Re-synchronize as above, if you have not done so.

2. Turn the ignition on 3 times within 7 seconds. The red light above the odometer should light and stay on for 3 seconds.

3. Enter the PIN. Immediately after the red light goes out as per 2 above, switch on the ignition and count the number of flashes until it equals the number of the first digit on your PIN, then turn the ignition off, then on again. Do this for all four numbers.

4. What a pain, but if you get it wrong on a count, then you can restart by turning the ignition off for 10 seconds.

5. After the fourth digit, if the PIN is correct, the red light will stay on. Then you can re-test the fobs, and it should work.

Otherwise, call customer service.

Hope this helps.

where is the leak from sounds like brake or clutch fluid as oil is coloured. Check the level of the brake/clutch fluid reservoir in the front of the car it is a common reservoir supplying both. the slave cylinder fo the clutch is located on the gear box in the engine compartment left hand side towards the bulkhead on a large black steel bracket these are the most common componets to leak. easy to change and not very expensive.
