Replaced head gasket with all seals and valve stem seals and new exhaust and all is going now
But idles rough and almost die when you put foot on brakes - people had advised checking base idle and isc
Now there has been water leaking - like very slow but it is leaking, could that be the water pump as it wasnt replaced when head gasket was done.
And another problem now is sometimes it is hard to start after I drive it back from shops or from work. One time it was just warm as I reversed out of driveway and tried to start for 3 times - could that be a replace the ignition switch sort of thing?

yeah it's mostly hard to start when it's warm or hot but then sometimes it just starts
if water is in the bores then motor will have to be pulled out again and stuff? Im sure the guy did a good job but just hoping it goes away
