Ea - cop version

hey i just recently bought an ex cop Ea (manual of course)... it has been having over heating problems and idling inconsistancies (dipping down under normal rev point) . I found an exterior coolant leak from the main raditior hose to the head but with no signs of oil.
I then replaced the oil and cleaned up the engine bay to check for any other leaks and i couldnt see anything. The only other oil i could find was on the back of the head with my hand and there might have been some fresh oil, im not sure. Does anyone think it has a blown head gasket?
Can anyone tell me how i can check if it is has and if so how hard it would be to do - cheers

Re: Ea - cop version

Thread moved to engine tech. I guess obvious things is check for coolant in the oil, do a compression check.

Also try searching on past posts on this subject.

Re: Ea - cop version

Steam in the exhaust?
What colour are the plugs?
How about the oil colour, is there any oily scum in the radiator?
