It is a 1.4 petrol but started to leak small amounts of oil. Coolant level not affected.
Hi..there..If it leaking small amounts of oil doesnt mean the headgasket is at fault unless it actually physically leaking oil out along the seem between the head and the block..or one of the oil galleries passageways is allowing oil into the cylinder"s" either way i would strongly suggest that is ruled out for sure to be your issue than go down the route of unnecessary expense..as it doesnt just involve the headgasket set..you'll need the full timing belt kit along with the water pump - if it the oil presure switch causing your leak then thats reletively cheap job to do as it just replacement of the switch itself and thats it..so if the oil leak you mention is indeed from the switch then thats all that should be required to fix that...if all had to be replaced above..i wouldnt be surprised you'd be looking at £800-£900 bill to be honest inc the parts/vat etc...best advice would be to be 100% sure the headgasket is at fault and then get the best quotes locally you can get from reputable garages to carry out the work...
