I had the cam belts done in May, the idea was to run the car in summer and store the car over winter. Due to a moving house and a change in circumstances I have no option but to sell the car to a good home. However during the last week the car has started showing early signs of head gasket failure. What is the best thing to do ? Get him fixed and then sell him OR sell me as is to allow the new owner to either do it themselves or get his own garage to sort. I would appreciate any advice. Thanks

It has done it when doing 50 on motorway, but then on another day you can go over 60 and it is fine. Also if stood in traffic it sometimes does it. When it does it the gauge goes to the top and the red light comes on. Not used very often maybe once every couple of weeks. What else could it be if its not the head gasket ? thanks
