Hi All,

I have a Ba straight LPG Falcon and It keeps missing, I've noticed that there is water coming from the back spark plug around where the copper ring looking part meets the head I guess. Just wondering if anyone knew what the problem may be? I was thinking it needs a new head gasket. Already tired heas gasket fix additive.

Thanks for the help. Mark

I saw something similar on an AU head.....the head needed to be replaced....corrosion had got it.

Try checking the oil condition, if it looks milky from coolant contamination, and see if there's any moisture in the engine oil cap, I've seen those models have porous heads
