So last night I was driving on the motorway when I felt this sudden vibrating I looked down at the dash board and the temperature gage was in the red zone so I pulled over in a layby and checked the water tank when I opened the bonet a lot of steam was coming out from a tube near the head gasket, it was also completely empty of water so I filled it, a mile or so down the road the same thing happened again, since then I've been having to check the water everytime I go out, there was also this really grimey kind of oily substance in the water tank. It seems to me that there is a leak coming from somewhere could it be from the radiator? Or one of the pipes? Or worse a head gasket problem? I'm female and know absolutely nothing about cars, is this an expensive problem to fix? Or am I better of with a new car? If it is the radiator does this cost much to have repaired?
have the same problem?
