Hello again -

Thank you for your reply and further info..

You have to have an internal engine problem here Im afraid Vadimas... there is no other explanation for this...

Added to that - the very fact that you have that smoke that smells of coolant proves what I say above... so Im afraid the garage has missed something with their tests... the fault has to be there - and I would at this stage suspect early stage head gasket failure.. the antifreeze / coolant is being lost out the exhaust as you drive - you cannot see this happening as you drive... but the evidence is there as you describe it...and with the smell of the coolant from the exhaust.

I dont know what sort of tests have been done Vadimas, but this needs to be tested more -and with different equipment maybe - but you definitely have an internal engine fault there that needs tracing down for sure.

Let me know if you need anything else on this - If you do get back to me wishing to discuss it further- I will get back to asap after I receive your reply.

Hello again Vadimas...

Yes that is so.

That is exactly what I meant when I said as above in my reply... " early stages of head gasket failure "...

You can carry on using it - topping up the coolant - -it will get worse slowly - it can happen suddenly ---or it can take a long time..

You did not many that at the outset - but it doesn't matter.... the "symptoms" that you describe are due to the faults I have outlined for you.... and that is the way forward for you on this one for sure.
