expansion tank

Postby kdroberts » Sat May 11, 2013 11:59 am

I am a new member and have a 10 year old 206. I have a problem with the expansion tank. Water being poured straight in with the engine off is leaking straight away and there is oil in the expansion tank.Can anyone give me advice as to the problem? Thanks

Welcome to the forum.
Sounds like a head gasket failure with your car. Classic symptoms.

As only one post, I guess it was the head gasket.

Classic.

Cheers,

Unfortunately this is often the case. People come here with their problems, advice is given, and we never hear from them again so don't know if we were right or not.
It would help other people with similar problems if we did get feedback.
