Rover 416i - Engine Problem ??
First post tying to pre-empt a potential problem I may have with my Rover 416.
About a month ago I experienced a damaged water cap with steam pouring from the reservoir. Replaced the cap and then realised I had a leaky radiator which I then replaced. Re-filled with water and coolant. Everything seemed fine and still does. No overheating, temp gauge stays halfway up.
Last week I noticed that my heating seems only to work on setting "III". I checked the oil this morning and there were small creamy deposits at the tip of the dipstick.
I've had this car since May. I bought it from a friend who buys and sells 2nd hand cars and am pretty sure he sold me the car on the straight and narrow. He told me before I bought that cars of this age (69,000 miles at the time, 75,000 now) can be prone to head gasket failure and to keep an eye out for the oil turning this creamy colour.
Any advice greatly appreciated.
