    Have you checked for oil in the coolant or coolant in the oil?

    Not blowing oil, only oil leak is little round the sump Dave, no water in oil or reverse Scillies,would it make a difference if you put the blue coolant in instead of the red ? Just that the machanic who did my cam belt put blue in? I've had it changed to the red and that seems when I've started getting problems
