This concerns the same Jan 1996 BMW 328SE Auto whose ABS problem we're
discussing in the other thread.
While they had the car for the ABS scan this morning, I asked them to look
at my poor heating. They reported that "...the upper hose was hot but the
lower one cool. And there's high pressure throughout, strongly indicating
the possibility of a leaking head gasket," or something along those lines.
I'd appreciate advice on the seriousness of this please. It sounds
potentially expensive and if so is another factor I need to consider
carefully before spending £300 or so to get the ABS fixed. This comes on
top of quite high repair and servicing in 2010.
Not an easy decision therefore lies ahead. More repairs now, or withdraw
(say) £15 K from savings for a replacement second-hand 3-series (or Merc,
or Lexus - I've done zero research so far).
