Hello to All
I am new to the Forum and have a 1998 3.0 v6. I bought it in march this year, its from Germany and was owned by a Doctor and has only covered 60,00 kms. I love it.
I do however have a problem.....I was driving through Germany en route to Bulgaria when it started to overheat, it was taken by the AA to a garage there who replaced the head gasket, which had gone and skimmed the head and did all the neccessary stuff like replacing the Thermostat,cam chain and water pump, but it is still overheating and had to be towed back to England.. the German garage said that they did not really know what was wrong and good luck!.....
i really dont know what to do next. has anyone got any ideas on what the problem could be. I have had a quote for a replacement engine, but I feel this ought to be a last resort really.
i have read somewhere that it is crucial to put the correct coolant in........I topped up with water just before i caught the eurostar, it ran for about 600 kms before the overheating started and was wondering if this had anything to do with it...
..i would be grateful for any advice or if anyone can recommend a specialist on these vehicles in the UK.
