The oil is not creamy in the tank or in the rocker cover or on dipstick so i

would,nt have thought headgasket

The engine runs perfect and no bubbles coming from expansion tank

All answers wanted, cheers mark

Dont Guess a headgasket failure as it could cost you a new engine "could"

Get it Diagnosed and then you know where you stand.

Currently in my own opinion all crosshairs are pointing at headgasket.
