HI there,

These VL are very reliable but the turbo version engine re plant do have a problem cracking heads, I would do and engine flush first change the oil & filter a nd run it for a while, see if it starts to go milky, are you using any coolant? May be get a head check done, this takes just a few Minuit's and is fairly accurate, start here.
