    Default 2.2 Direct Major engine fault!!

    The other day my car was being driven along normally anyway at a set of light it started misfiring on Cylinder 2 turned it off for around 1 hour and started it back up all was fine but still had the engine management light on.

    3 days later after all was fine it happend again a first I thought it was coilpack or spark plugs changed both and problem still there but this time its not going away.

    After closer inspection there looks like oil or petrol running over the shield on the exhaust manifold also had alook on the floor and its dripping out.

    I am now thinking the Head Gasket has gone so took it to work and have now just had a compression test and all 4 Cylinders are coming back with 225 PSI so there all fine.

    Any Ideas its going on the ramps at 12 but im at a loss now it cant be anything to do with the ecu can it becuase its leaking oil/petrol out well i think its petrol anyway.

    Any Help greatly appreciated

    could it be the hp fuel pump thats went and leaking petrol in to the engine? make sure all the pipes are ok no splits and the injectors are not leaking at the o ring seals and the fuel presure regulator isnt leaking at its seal

    If anyone knows were I can get a Head from it would be appreciated as Im having no luck.

    Seen one on Ebay for 650 but I can buy a 2.0 turbo engine for 750 and try and make that fit.

    650 is a stupid price for a head

    My mate had a cracked head on his 2.0DTi and had a lot of pressure in the header tank! Are you sure the head is cracked? Could be a burnt valve?
