    Default C3 1.4 emulsified oil in header tank

    Theres no emulsified oil under the rocker cover; so a one way leak thru the head gasket.?
    Anyone had experience with this? Is it common with the C3? 2002.
    thx

    It's common. The integrated o-ring seal on the head gasket's orifice for oil transfer to the head, fails.

    Oil will eventually rot your top radiator hose.

    The fix is a new head gasket - use a VRS kit - and new head bolts. Treat the sealing faces and replacement gasket with a generous spray of Hylomar. Once reassembled, bleed, bleed, bleed again. Flush the cooling system several times to remove oil, too.

    Last did this with a datsun 1600! I get the flush of the cooling system, what needs to be bleed on the engine after replacing head gasket?
    thanks guys
