I think my smokey problem was head gasket.

ive noticed oil escaping from the front of the head, and dripping down. when i looked this morning the pipe that connects the manifold to the head had blown off at the non return valve & i had a water leak on saturday.

What is the beest/worse case scinario im looking at?

Im currently in negotiation with the garage where i bought the car (i wont say who or where yet) but the when it was sold to me it was sold with a 6 month engin & gearbox waranty. when i called them before they said 3 months, i am currently in month 4 or 5.

The car had this warant on it because it was a new/recon engine & gearbox.

smoke leves have increased and are now intermitent when going slow, oil levels are low, and there seems to be lots of preasure...is it too far gone for a re-torque? or is it a case of suck it and see?
