Question about 2007 Fiat Pininfarina
My fiat brava has recently had a leak in the radiator ,i can smell petrol or oil fumes when i top up the water in the radiator ,the engine is consuming more petrol than it should be and the exhaust is blowing .
someone told me that the head gasket is gone too ,how much would i expect to pay to have remedial work done
otherwise the car runs perfect
If the head gasket is starting to go, the the water gets vapourized inside the engine. The water level will go down, sometimes you get white smoke from the exhaust, the car consumes more fuel and has less compression and performances.
If you are lucky, and you check the water you can drive a car with bad head gasket for many miles, before it blows completely and leave you on the middle of a motorway.
If the head gasket is starting to go better to fix it or to replace the car.
The part costs only thirty pounds or so here in UK, but the job is expensive, as you need to take apart the head.
Here in UK you dont pay less than four hundreds pounds, probably a bit more, depending on the garage.
