Hi, I bought a 1.4 9N3 a few days ago. After starting from cold it sounds like it's running on 3 cylinders for just a few seconds before then running fine. It will run fine up until leaving it to go cold and then starting it again. Have just tried to start it tonight to which it wouldn't. After trying for about half an hour to get it going, we noticed that the coolant bottle has become almost full and very pressurised with some steam coming out the exhaust. After leaving it for a few minutes it then started fine and the coolant has since gone back down. Am I right in assuming the head gasket has failed or is there anything else that could be causing this? Can anyone give me a ballpark figure of how much I can expect to pay for this at a garage? Thanks in advance.
