hi,m.o.t ,full service ,oil leak sorting and head gasket is weeping!.
regarding the oil leak, when I had it first looked at they said new cambelt and seals.
these were fitted, but after about a week it was still leaking.
they fitted a new belt and seals free of charge, then said my head gasket is weeping.
I still had an oil leak, so back it went, they now say I need new cams!?
this was also free of charge.
I was told I can still run the car, but I just need to keep the oil topped up, this is when I decided to sorn it.
I also want/need two dents pulling out,alloys re furbed,rear spoiler {coupe} blowing over,3 rust patches sorting and chrome inserts re placing.
it will get sorted, just don't know when.

New Cams ?

Doubtful, they are made of pigiron, probably needs Cam Seals.
