Head Gasket Problems
Vehicle Make Vauxhall
Vehicle Model Tigra 1.4
Vehicle Mileage 36000
Vehicle Age 1999
Fuel Type Petrol
Question:
My car miss-fires on starting but only for a while (just after it has warmed up a little, choke still on) then runs ok. the radiator often needs bleeding to release build up air in the system (a large amount) no visible signs of water in the oil and no real signs of water at the exhaust. Is it possible the head gasket is only slightly damaged, hence a damp plug on start up? Any thoughts, checks that can be done to eliminate this? Thanks for any advise.....!!!!!!!

My car is making a noise and I'd like to know what's causing it!
My car started making a high pitched squealing noise about 2 days ago, its coming from the drivers side in the front. It started off being just an occasional noise but now it is constant. My first thought was that it's the brakes, but I've never heard this sound before so I just want to find out what it could be. Any help would be welcome.
