Hi Seem To Be Slowly Loosing Water From The Radiator I Top The Water Up Every Couple Of Weeks (dont Drive My Car Very Often)
But With No Visable Signs Of A Leak.
Have Also Noticed What Seems To Be Oily Grime On The Inside Of The Exspantion Bottle And A Slight Bit Of Sludge On The Radiator Cap.

Is The Head Gasket Going ???????

No White Smoke At The Moment, Get A Bit Of Black Smoke When
The Turbos I Give It Hard Also Need To Top Up Oil Quite Often
Don T Know If Skylines Normally Drink Oil Have Owned A Couple Of Cosworths In The Past Which Drank Oil Like Its Stella Artois.

The GTR`s suffer from cracked cylinder heads which can somtimes let oil into the coolant system. This may explain your sludge on the cap!

Best to get it checked.

We can do all the work listed above if required. What ECU are you using?

We can also check the cylinder head as it will need to be pressure tested but it must be done at operating temps!!

Just give us a call on the number bellow is you need any info
