Does anyone know a decent mechanic in the Stoke on Trent area?
I've just brought a 308 1.4 EP3 8FS.

It looks like it has had a recent replacement head as it has scrapyard markings on it. Problem I have is that the thermostat is stuck open, the manifold heat shield is missing and there is grey smoke from the exhaust when pulling away from traffic lights when hot.

I think it could be valve stem seals or a poorly fitted head (I have checked and there are no exhaust gasses in the coolant) but need someone with at least half an idea to give it the once over and not be too expensive for the work.
