I was on my way to work this morning in all the pouring rain, about 20 miles from home noticed the temp gauge creeping up towards the red. Just as I was about to pull in, the temp dropped back to normal. Checked the hot air from the heater which was fine so pressed on but about a mile further on, noticed lots of white smoke in my rearview mirror.
Pulled into a lay-by and checked under the bonnet. No water in the header tank, engine is idling very rough and lumpy (possibly only firing on 3 cylinders) checked at the back and still lots of steam from the exhaust.
Turned the engine off and phoned the breakdown services.
2 hours later dropped it off at the garage and walked home to get the other car and go into work late.
So looks like I will have a nice little bill although if it costs too much I'll just scrap it!
BTW, it isnt the K series powered ZR, it was my Honda powered GTi
