My XPG TF 115 is of similar vintage. HG's been done in the past, along with lashings of cooling system sealant (gggrr!!!) that took ages to flush out.
I suspected IMG gasket failure when I had a recent slight water loss. To it's credit the sealant made it run 'smelly' when hot.
I found that my original IMG wasn't replaced (or replaced with an old part) when it had it's 'HG works' and it had broken in 3 places!. The later gaskets are more substantial and a very different colour. I've got pics of both.
I've become very suspicious that the simple little IMG nestling obscurely in a plastic part has become a bit of a cash cow...pessimistic, I know...
Sorry but I reckon yours might have given up the ghost like mine...
