cylnder head was created by paul2u
i noticed first that the engine seemed to be running off a cylnder on tick over but ok on higher reves and driving , i then noticed that my water level kept dropping and needing to be topped up , i took out number 2 plug to find it fowled up as this was the cylnder that was missing on tick over , i put in a brand new plug for it just to be the same , coild packs ect have been checked and ok , i also have water coming from the exhaust , i loose about one pint of water on 60 miles , i am thinking the head gasket or worse as there seem to be no aparent leaks , i am minded to take of the head , what do you guys think cheers

Sounds like a reasonable assumption.

It's not a Jimny. It's my Jimny

A compression test will confirm, but definitely sounds like a head off job. Which engine? If it's a DOHC save the hassle and swap the whole thing for a 1.6

It's only a marginally more difficult job to put in a 1.6.

It's not a Jimny. It's my Jimny

I would take the head off and have a look. You can always then decide to repair or get a donor engine be it same or 1.8. Trouble is you will not know the history of the donor engine and even if you see and hear it running it is a big gamble. Remember to take into account,t if you fix the head leak, the skimming of the head , gasket set and new head bolts along with new oil and filter and coolant. But better the devil you know etc!

Yes I love the stuff but plenty of folks don't. Main thing is it saves a head job and when I have used it I have never had any more problems after.

Do it right - use Hammerite
