  2. Sounds like compression is making its way into the crankcase alright.
    Head Gasket is definitely a possibilty.
  3. I am at work at the moment, so I haven't watched the clip.

    But.. The water has to be going somewhere. When it's topped up is it filmy at the top? if so that would be indicative of a blown gasket, or worse, a cracked cylinder head. Another sympton could be misfiring.

    I'll have a listen later, I have had some experience with cars and this problem.
  4. Something is fcuked, that's for sure.
    The head has to come off anyway, you'll soon see the problem.
    With head problems, VCM's the bloke to talk to ;)
