hi guys the only symptom i have is that i have to top up the coolant every week. could you tell me from your experiences what else would come up if the head gasket is gone ghead
head gasket? well check your oil for coolant and your coolant for oil, that is a for sure sign of a cracked head gasket. your performance would be off and i think you would overheat, however i cant remember, if you think its your headgasket and your totally positive it is, id get it fixed asap before serious problems occur , ive seen 3 bmw's with blown head gaskets 2 of them were guys who drove it until it wouldnt anymore , you can imagine his bill, they we had to send them out to be machined. the 3rd guy only had to replace the fluids and gasket itself with the machine work being done at the shop.
when was the last coolant change you did steath? and who did it? you could have air bubbles in your system , have you tried bleeding it?
and to add to asios comments check the engine bay for coolant (new and old) new will look green of course and old will be a caked on grey colour.
