I have always changed Oil after every 2500-3000 kms and also check radiator water regularly. Since 3-4 days, car is heating frequently and the heat temp goes way beyond half (as my fan is direct)... And Engine oil is getting very less after a few kms (0.2-0.5 km after a fifty km drive)... Car is even drinking water after some kms of drive I have to refill a litre of water. Went to my mechanic and he suggested changing Rings and Head Gaskit as well as some other seals that i don't remember.
A total expense of around 8000-9000(including his labor of 3000). FYI, I have always used Caltex Havoline 10w-30 Oil. Could that be the culprit? What do you guys suggest? Show car to some other mechanic for problem discovery and estimation or maybe just change the gaskit only to see if its the only culprit. What options do you experts suggest?
