Dear customer my name is***** the expert who will attend you today, I am reviewing your query at the moment you are viewing this message, if you wish you can tell me your name, to know who I have the pleasure to talk to, also if possible I would like you to send me a photo or video in which your fault is better appreciated, it would help a lot to improve my final answer. If you have done a previous check or diagnosis in which you have obtained any error codes, that would also be helpful. Please note that the system will automatically offer you a service call, this has an additional cost to the initial cost of the consultation, and not in all cases it is necessary, so I recommend you to dispense with the call for now, we can continue through this chat without any problem. Thank you very much for trusting in the just answer.

Dear customer, when do you plan to make this repair? Probably the damage is in the cylinder head gasket, driving it for a long time in this way could lead to major damage.

Dear customer, when do you plan to make this repair? Probably the damage is in the cylinder head gasket, driving it for a long time in this way could lead to further damage, I do not advise to drive it if the repair time exceeds one week.

Dear customer, I hope you will take heed of what I have mentioned above and try to solve your problem as soon as possible, if you can use your car for a few weeks, but since there is a probability that the leak is in the cylinder head gasket, it is not advisable to postpone repairs for a long time.
