    I have oil in my water and water in my oil.
    Im not losing water but I am blowing white smoke.
    Do you thinks it's worth changing the oil cooler or just get it booked in for the inevitable HG replacement?

    There was mustard the other week but it hadn't come back since.
    I changed the coolant a couple of weeks ago (with the correct pink coolant) its now dark brown.
    The dip stick has very runny thin oil on it quite high up the stick. I changed the oil in November with the reccomended oil.
    Any ideas on labour time for a HG? I was going to compression test the engine the other week as well but the draper compresion tester didn't fit the engine.

    I do smell burning oil after driving 15 miles or so.
    So if the oil cooler was crackered and wasnt cooling the oil would that make it thin?
