    Is this signs of a head gasket failure?

    Topped the oil up today on my Cupra to find this inside the oil filler cap.:( The car doesn't use water at all so I'm a bit confused as to why it is there. It does smell a bit of exhaust fumes though. The car currently runs and drives OK so is this the sign of a blown head gasket. Water temp is...

    Signs of a failing N75 OR Coilpack?

    just wondered what the signs are for these as im having trouble with boost. the car just feels like a 1.8 not boosting above 5psi at times? Other times it feel like its hesitating then hits you with full boost , not a smooth delivery??? Had a look at the N75 at the number on the side which...

    Is this the signs of a dead clutch?

    When I hold the car at the bite on steep hills etc, it makes a jarring noise (which i know is clutch related - because it only does it when biting at a certain point) and smoke starts coming from behind/below the engine. It stinks of burning clutch too which is a big giveaway. My car is...
