There is a possibility that you could have either an oil cooler, or tranny cooler that could get in the coolant. Look at the link below to see if this fits the application on your car. If you are looking to buy this car having this problem, it will be very expensive to pull the head. The head gasket problem is rare, but possible. I would pressure test the system to try & find the problem.

No shop will waste time quoting you for something they did not diagnose, especially when you haven't even had it diagnosed either. Plain and simple. Not to mention a large job like a head gasket, transmission, engine quote. Too many unseen variables for a professional to give you a quote.


Take it to a European shop, get it diagnosed, and pay them to fix it if they're a good shop with a high reputation and seem legitimate.

The fact that you are calling around for quotes leads me to believe you're probably trying to do this on a budget. I highly suggest you don't take this car anywhere else but a European shop unless you want a bigger mess than you are already in.

Best of luck.
