    Possible Head Gasket problem?

    ok, so i originally had a coolant leak above by water pump in a +410K Kilometer Vs 1996 statesman. I changed a couple of a o-rings that went through to the aircon and other coolant passages.

    Nevins VS Clubsport Build

    Hi, this is my 96 Clubby. Bought her completely original a few months back with 216xxx on the clock. People tell me to keep it original but I am a car modifier and this will be my first worthy project, and there’s nothing I like more than a blank canvas. This will be a fairly slow moving project...

    What would cause this noise?

    I have a 1996 VS Executive II 3.8 V6 Auto. What would cause a misfire (only happening on the left hand side) intermittently at high revs (3000 or there abouts when the car is about the shift) which gets worse the hotter/longer you drive? I have replaced the spark plugs because i don't have no...
