Is this a faulty head-gasket? (see picture).
My 406 TD from 99 started to become greasy around the expansion tank at first. The amount of oil floating on top of the water increased in a few running days more and more until I decided to change the head-gasket.
I checked the oil-cooler and found no leakages there. By taking off the hose from the water-pump I noticed an excessive amount of pure oil and it made me doubt if this can be a head-gasket solely, see picture:
While running there where no air bubbles in the expansion tank and the oil in the engine was water-free. The oil just went with the cooling liquid and at the last running day very fast.
Anybody experience with this? Can I rest assure when I just change the gasket?
Maybe this can give a clue although I think it's coincidence: There was some engine noise before as you can read here:
Thanks in advance for any help!
