    Default Loosing confidence in my GSi!

    As i mentioned before the car went in to get the oil pump gasket done today aswell as timing belt kit and sump gasket to do the job properly.

    Got a phone call from the dealership when the car was stripped the mechanic spotted the head gasket is leaking aswell it now needs a head gasket job done on it aswell on my supposedly bullet proof 3.2 v6 thats only done 36k!

    The only positive from this is that the head gasket side of things is covered under warranty and it also gives me a courtesy car for upto a week, still does'nt make me feel any better tho

    With a new set of belts and no oil pump or head leak it will solve the noisey belts in the winter when i start it up and the ever so slight erratic idle hopefully.
