got my car into the mechanics today to find out why i'm losing soo much coolant, fearing head damage i was thankful when he rang telling me the welch plugs on the intake side were rooted.
he has quoted me but can't do it til monday.
anyone with experience & lives within a reasonable distance wanna make a few bucks?
i'll purchase the plugs, i will want to replace all of them, and will pay a fair price.
cheers.

the engine will need to be removed to the the rear welch plug behind the bell housing, though there may be a way to do it with engine still in the car though pretty sure it need to come out to do 'all', mine need replacing also under the exhaust.

The engine doesnt need to be removed to do that one, but the transmission does, and the flywheel.
