Hi Peeps,

A mate of mine has a 2ltr celica, he is getting steam from under the bonnet and the expansion tank is bubbling when the car is idling, sounds like a head gasket to me anyone else confirm?

or throw any other ideas in the pot?

Cheers

BHG sounds most likely, although could possibly be a blocked hose as well maybe on the radiator. Should take the rad cap off, then run the car for a few mins, see if any air bubbles come up.

Water leak was my other suggestion, He did say that it is running fine, and its not getting hot...

I did say buy a skyline! :p
