Silver gto mk 1tt possible breaking due to frozen engine


#1

Silver mk1 possible breaking as previous owner didn’t have antifreeze in engine I didn’t realise and started it to warm it up it got warm pretty quick I shut it of straight away but was bubbling so not sure what damage is done yet till it gets a bit warmer and defrosts lol


#2

Ouch! If it’s knackered I might need a few pieces mate


#3

Id be interested


#4

It’s suppose to be warmer over the weekend so will try starting it I’m pretty sure something happened to water pump as it started making noises then went away but still ran perfect part from overheating so didn’t jump timing I think the impeller got ripped apart


#5

My guess is it will be ok had some overheating problems in the past and it caused no damage

Check the thermostat first, l had this, stat stuck, new one no probs, its just like boiling a kettle if its stuck.


#7

So started her up today and didn’t overheat but coolant is spitting out of filler neck took of thermostat and opens and closes as it should so I’m assuming head problems


#8

Ok so gonna start breaking this unless someone wants to take as a whole will start stripping at the weekend if no interest will put pics up in a bit
