Gutted, the Parkinsons warrior is not well, head gasket has gone 馃槺 what's the going rate for repair. I know that I could probably pick another one up for a few hundred quid but tbh I have thrown a lot of money and countless hours on her lately and with the stickers etc I'm taking the hit, might be off the road for a few weeks but definitely want it repaired, just wondering how much to expect

Quick update, long shot but I tried using a few bottles of steel seal on the vectra, 1st one took a lot of the pressure from the water pipes but it was just taking the p#ss out of me. Back to square one so I have no choice but to pull the engine out and stick the spare unit in. Found a head gasket set in the cupboard so pulling the head and changing it along with the timing belt and water pump. New egr valve lying here to, gony be boosting again soon. Unit has 16k less on it and if I remember correctly it had new glow plugs fitted not long before I stripped the car.
