Resently my family and i took our diahatsu hijet for a overnight stay with friends. (200miles there and back)
About an hour and a half in the the trip the poor car was getting really hot, worried it my die on the motorway we continued our trip just miles from my friends the engine cut out and came back again we were very worried but got to our desination. After a few hours to cool we checked the water level and replace nearly 2litres.
\the following day we were just desperate to get home but within 2 miles the car had reached boiling point so we pulled to the side and called the AA he soon diagnosed that the head gasket had gone he towed us to a garage and we continued home by train. I imagined that i would never see my little family motor again but within the week i had a call and the damage was only the head gasket at the cost of just under Ã‚Â£300 i'm returning to fetch her next week
