I have a 2001 45, Is that part of the new set that had the plastic head fitting? I'm not very good at the mechanical side but have had head gasket failure in the past and scared of it happening it again.

Hi quick question. My car was loosing coolant and stuttering when hot with some steam. I have a very bad repair with bathroom sealant on the inlet manifold gasket. And mayo on my breather pipes and across whole top of camshaft area above the gasket only when breather area is. My question is do u think i can get off with replacing this inlet gasket which is failed or is the mayo symptoms of an hgf as well. Any assistance would be great thanks.

Hi I am new here. My 2005 TF 160 Spark is due for cambelts/waterpump but I have noticed that there is black oil in the coolant (not a brown sludge) car runs great plenty of power and is not using coolant or oil. Seeing that I am going change the belts should I change the headgasket at the same time, since half the job is done already. Thanks.
