Yesss... I know... my fault...

Days before I replaced the water tank, and the bottom O-ring was worn... I just added some silicone hi-temp to seal it. But guess what... it started to leak and I just refill until I get the o-ring to be replaced. But I think that day I did not purge it well and it hit the 125C (262F) without throwing any "low level" warning in the dash... I just saw the needle in the RED zone and I stopped the car...
Now it throw the compresion by the water tank... so we need to replace the head gasket and resurface the head. I just got an oversized thickness head gasket to be replaced.
