Hey mate,

You should check out this guys thread on fordforums with his AU falcon just like yours. He is doing a full clean interior and exterior and he actually has done the whole undercarrage, and man he has done a great job too.

Check out his link and once your done advertise it on there

I'd say that is manifold corrosion before being a cracked headgasket/head.

EDIT: Its very common with holden and ford v8's when sitting for periods of time.

I have heard of late model Fords and Commodores running poorly because of not having any coolant mixed in the cooling system /radiator

Sensors then gave wrong readings resulting in poor running

Yes yours like built up corrosion in the system, maybe time for a chemical flush

How is it running ?

drop the rad out and give it a good clean, if you can get the end tanks off even better

car looks like a sweet buy man, I personally like the S3 AUs, can't say no to a V8 no matter what it's in!
