    Default Do I have a head gasket problem........?

    Dear All,
    My car is a 1998 1.4 civic with 90k on the clock. I don't have any of the classic HG problems like overheating, milky oil or contaminated coolant but when l changed my coolant this weekend I couldn't bleed the system properly it just kept burping air through the top of the radiator. I left it running for a good 45 mins....The fan would come on and go off again as normal but the air bubbles kept coming. The car is not overheating.........where could this air be coming from..........HG leak......?

    check all the pipework for leaks and also the radiator, are the fins all intact?

    Can't see any leaks from radiator or hoses have tried a bottle of k seal but it hasn't made any difference not overheating and no oil/coolant contamination . Heater now blowing cold air and over flow tank filling up. Going to try replacing radiator cap beyond that I'm lost!!!!!! Thanks for your reply
