Appear to have pressure in the expansion tank once hot, however , no visible coolant in oil and no visible oil in the coolant.

Having no starting issues, but do have white smoke on start ( strong diesel smell, clears on warm up )

Vans holding at 90 with no overheating.

Coolant dropping ever so slightly after a few hundred miles.

Thermostat appears to be opening with both bottom and top feeds warm once running for a bit.

Heaters are blowing when warmed up , very hot!

Could there be anything else creating pressure build up before assuming worst case scenario of a Head leak!’

Water appears to be circulating ok.

2.5 Tdi (AJT)

Anybody experienced anything similar?

If head gasket, what kind of price should I be looking to expect for a repair and any repair garages recommended?
