I was loosing about a cup of water a week, but when it (the head gasket)
went, I had nothing left. It was fairly gushing out. As I am South Africa, I
am not too sure about the vauxhall watsit (Vauxhall it sold as Opel in this
market) but I am also not keen on messing with the pressure rating of the
cap unless I am sure it is correct.
I have heard of various widgets that monitor engine oil pressure and water
temp and start buzzing if it gets too loud but I have not come across any
details as yet.
I can use my national instruments Fieldpoint to do all that, but at a few
UKP (about ZAR30 000.00) it seems overkill.
