Peugeot 207 suspected dodgy head gasket
I hope you can help, I've got an '06 1.4 207.
Recently I've been having some issue with the car, the first issue being that when slowing down or coming to a full stop 9/10 times the engine will cut out, meaning a speedy restart if still in motion.
The second issue I've noticed recently is a rapid loss of coolant. I checked it last week as I noticed the temp gauge hadn't really been moving and so was a bit confused, turned out the chamber was empty, so filled it up and all ok. Checked it again yesterday, and it was empty, so filled up, checked this morning and half the coolant had gone.
I haven't had chance for a good check of leaks, but with the loss of power, which I'm guessing could be low compression and the loss of coolant, its making me think it could be the head gasket.
Any other suggestions?

Look for a water leak first. Lack of coolant may have made the ECU see wrong engine temps and miss fuel the car causing the cutting out
