Gf's mums metro sorta went a bit ill last nite. Steam poring out the left hand side vent (as you look head on at car), and water pissing out everywhere. The bonnet isnt very easy to open so aint looked inside yet! This sound like HGF though?

If it is a Kseries, it could well be inlet manifold gasket rather than HG.

Probably a split hose or rad. Metros seem to be tougher as most of them are K8s (which don't seem to blow HG's as much) except for GTis which are K16s.

Other thing that happens is that header tank caps can sometimes be faulty.

True enough. Keep forgetting the Metty uses the K8 engine mainly. Never looked at them tbh.
