Hey all not sure if this has been mentioned before.....
my dad's mate has been a Ford mech for 16 years and is currently fixing my head gasket on my new eb (pics soon people just need to go back to the missus house and wresle my laptop back)
I asked him why the Head gaskets died on the 3.9 motors all the time. He said that when the EA 3.9 motor came out the type of coolent for the car would crystalise in the radiator and block it up this would restrict the water flow and keep the motor at a higher than normal state (normal 1/4 high anything over 1/2)
Then BANG head gasket.
He recommends getting your radiator cleaned correctly every 2-4 years.
BTW what the hell does this mean
