This web site is meant simply to list known head gasket failures on the MGF

If you would like additional information added to an existing entry in the database please e-mail MikeB directly.
The following is the personal opinion of Mike Barnes who maintains this site and may not represent the views of other MGF owners..
Why do MGF head gaskets seem to fail so often? My personal opinion is that many of them are down to poor servicing, the K series engine, while being very good, is not the strongest in the world, VERY careful attention to the cooling system is VITAL to keep the engine running reliably.
When any work has been performed on the cooling system it must be bled correctly, failure to do this may lead to a head gasket failure.
