MG TF160 Overheated - Now what?
I'm from South Africa. A few days ago while on a long trip my MGTF160 over heated, steam coming out the expansion take cap. I stopped immediately waited for things to cool down and slowly added more coolant. The dash warning light only just came on once which i then turned off the engine. I have read most post re overheating. I have taken the car into the local dealer who has said the HG has failed. (I didn't notice any water in the oil) They want to remove the entire engine and reskim, change bearings and all sorts of things. They say that the engine may have warped and that bearing might also be damaged and it is safer to redo the entier engine, est cost of about 3000 pounds.
The next morning I started the enigine and drove the car (very short) and the engine power, sound and feel seemed normal.
My question IS this really the way to go or should i take the chance and just get the HG replaced?
