    Default vectra c 1.8 sxi small bubbles in header tank

    hi sorry if this has been posted previously but i couldnt find anything.
    I have a vec c 1.8 sxi with little bubbles in header tank no overheating no gunk on dipstick or filler cap fan cuts in at 90odd temp gauge only moves when sitting in traffic. Am i looking at early hg failure or am i just being paranoid.

    any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

    I beleive you can get a "sniffer test" to see if it is eary stages of head gasket failure.

    Getting a sniff test done would be a good idea is it using any coolant?

    Just a thought, if you are not losing coolant then most likely nothing to worry about. I have noticed that sometimes some additives can cause this effect.
