Had the worst day ever today. Resulting in me towing my own car home in floods of tears.
I thought I had ran out of petrol because I had been cutting it fine. Hughezie brought a jerry can to me and suggested he drive mine back. After about five minutes there was a strange noise like a rattling and steam coming out of bonnet. So after pulling over to investigate we opened the expansion tank and it was bone dry, unusual as im keen in upkeep. so topped up the water but no sooner was the water going in it was coming out from what seemed the side of the block. After speaking to lee's rac mate he said it could possibly the water pump has collapsed. Under the oil filler cap there was some 'mayo' but again lee's mate said it could just be condensation as 8v engines are common for this. What do you guys reckon? lee's gonna have a look at water pump tomorrow, see if that can be the issue.
Hopefully it is. I absolutely love this car, devastated :(
