I previously had a pegeout 206. The head gasket went and I got it repaired aswell as servicing the car.
A week later the engine catches fire without any symptoms.
What might have caused this to occur? obviously as it was burnt i didnt take it to garage however are the mechanics who replaced the gasket and serviced the car to blame since maybe they didnt find the original cause of the gasket damage and this later lead to the fire? that of course is uneducated speculation on my part.
Also can a blown head gasket cause a car to catch fire? I'm guessing a blown gasket can leak oil and it will heat, cause burns and lead to a fire. Is this correct and if so would it mean a blown gasket can lead a car to catch fire or stop working.
If so is it reasonable to think my pegeout, after it was repaired, the head gasket blew again but this time leaked and caused a fire instead of stopping working altogether?
