If you had a oil leak that is not a reason for a head gasket or skimming the head. now the compression and voluum in the head has changed a lot. all it being a turbo wow :( sorry. those engine leak a lot of oil through the turbo seal

    Thanks for response, i hadnt made it clear, they skimmed the head because we had taken it in because there was white/grey smoke coming from the exhaust, they said there was water getting in through the head. we are stuck now as we have spent so much on it already new turbo wiring loom, 1st injector, absolute nightmare. I just think we have totally shafted but to far in it to give it up. thanks again appreciate your help

Could be just the OIL COOLER. VW IS CORRECT.
If the oil cooloer fails internely you will have a mix of coolant and oil. In the engine and in the Radiator,

But not to say the other guys were wrong...

SOURCE: smell oil but no oil leak

this sounds like a "crankcase vent valve"issue this part typically fails in colder whether as condensed water in the oil freezes and causes the engine to seep oil from the crankcase itself valve cover oil filter housing at block,the main part is located behing throttle valve but you can see the plastic hose that attatched to the valve cover,if you were to have removed the oil cap you can notice a cream like substance which is a mixture of oil and water,this is conformation of this problem also this would cause excessive oil to be consumed.google this part to get a better idea of what it looks like and what it does as it is basically a pcv system,this should be changed as it can cause engine failure

SOURCE: MIni Cooper S Head Gaskets Issues

the "sniffer" in this case is a device to detect the presents of combustion gasses in the water or radiator .... if there is a good head gasket seal then there should be no combustion gas in the water .... if there is even a small leak then the high pressure gasses will be forced into the water .. the opposite is true when you turn off the engine ... as it cools, pressure in the radiator can force water thru the leak back into the engine .... this also happens during the intake stroke .. so you would be losing water that you might see or smell come out the tail pipe ...the fact that the failure has happened a second time might indicate that you had a warped head or block .. or perhaps a micro crack or surface flaw.. those things should have been checked when the last repairs were done ... i am wondering if the repair shop might negotiate a reduced rate for the redo ... often heads are slightly machined to remove any warp or surface faults during such repairs (if any problems are suspected) ... a used replacement engine could have the same problem or worse .. so if yours is otherwise in good shape then it might be worth while to give it another go ,.. sounds like a good garage, hopefully they will cooperate ... and they might be interested in finding out themselves what happened ...

Hi. Hyundai Getz We have skimmed head & block, pressure tested head & obviously replaced head gasket and bolts, torqued to the right settings and still leaking oil. Any advice? Charmaine South Africa


Looking at the above there are only two possibilities it was not installed correctly or there is a hairline crack in the head or block. Second thought, make very sure the oil is not coming from another source only showing between the head and block. Oil leaks can be very deceiving wrt where the actual leak is.

2002 Dodge neon Problems with the head leaking?


It leaks what... coolant or exhaust gas?
If it's exhaust gases it's more likely to be the exhaust manifold gasket at fault.

If it's coolant leaking out somewhere it could be a hose/radiator/coolant tank, though coolant can also leak from the head gasket area.

A classic sign of a leaking head gasket is a creamy white/grey sludge on your oil dipstick. This is caused by coolant finding its way via a blown head gasket into the oil system

2002-dodge-neon-problems-head-leaking-drn4r4jcf5cpqfgonvky3zim-5-0.jpeg A creamy sludge on the dipstick - caused by coolant finding its way into the oil system because of a leaking head gasket.

Other indications of a leaking head gasket/head is overheating and rough running.

You can also try removing the cap from the coolant bottle and letting the engine idle. If bubbles continually appear this may be due to the exhaust gases finding their way into the cooling system via a leaking head gasket.

In most cases replacing a head gasket requires the cylinder head to be skimmed as well. This is because the alloy of the head tends to warp slightly.

A workshop would be able to diagnose a faulty head gasket within minutes. Having a head gasket replaced and the head skimmed isn't a cheap job.

Nowadays there are 'guaranteed head repair' additives available. Just follow the instructions on the can if you decide to use one. I personally haven't used such an additive.

Vw bora v5 mixing oil with water at the expansion tank. what is the fault?


Most likely a cracked head. They are often difficult to see with the by eye and can be in places you cannot see. One thing though, do any of the head bolts extend into the water jacket? If so, when you install them you need to use a manufacturers recommended thread sealer on the bolts or water from the water jacket will wick up through the head bolt threads into the head itself.

Could be too much coolant in the system. Does it run dry on you if you run it for too long? There could also be trapped air in your cooling system which will work itself out with time.

I had a look at the video and it looks like steam - to confirm oil will not evaporate but steam will disappear. If it is steam you have a blown head gasket again or a crack in the head, but you definitely seem to be getting water/steam into your crankcase.

My 3 year old polo done 24,000 miles been told


hi if it has low compression then this will mean one of three things the first and most likely is that the head gasket has gone this can be replaced but your head will need sending off to be pressure tested and skimmed to make sure it will work when refitted.
the second problem could be a cracked head in this case the head and gasket will need replacing but remember to check the thermostat and water pump as this can cause the head gasket to blow and could be the cause of the problem in the first place so get these parts checked

the third problem could be blown piston rings this is less likely unless the car has been driven with no oil.

let me know if you need further assistance ok
