WATER HEADER TANK

1998 Rover 4 Series

Engine Cooling problem
1998 Rover 4 Series 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 98000 miles

how can I resolve water escape out of my header tank when the engine is warm I currently have ptfe plumbers tape there to reduce the escape, would a new header tank resolve this.
it does not overheat or get in with oil so the head gasket is ok.

Have a compression test of the cylinders carried out. Suspect headgasket failure.
