Car dies – part 2

Well, it looks fairly serious. My old motor was taken away today to be repaired. It looks like it was a head gasket failure, probably from the coolant to combusiton chamber, this would have then caused the oxygen sensor to fail and bring the whole car to a halt. These cars are so full of electronics that any sensor failure means its not going to go very far, if at all. I’ll wait for the garage to call with regard to what damage there is once they’ve removed the head and managed to inspect it.

In the meantime I’ve got an old car to drive around in. This one has been well used, looks like its an ex-taxi with almost 1/4 million miles on the clock!

The good news from the day was that the old motorbike passed its MOT. Only a couple of advisories, one I knew about, the other was new to me. So looks like some suspension bushes and a new front brake disk are on the cards for the next year. Oh well, time to put in more overtime!
