Diesel you say?

You could always try changing the cylinder head gasket!

It's a bit cheaper than an engine by about £700 :wink:

hi,

Garage supposed to have done it. It's not overheating but is still using oil. Have been informed that oil cooler might be faulty (common problem apparently).
Now need to bypass oil cooler,( by connecting pipes straight through?). Clean it out, Run for a couple of days and if cooler has oil in it it is faulty.
