Have I bought a nail


I am brand new to this forum and have a feeling i may be a refular ;->

I've just bought a 500 quid safrane (2.2) and have since discovered it may have head gasket issues. don't know how serious these are yet. The coolant looks suspiciously low and there is mayo in the oil filler cap. Apparently there is steam emitting from the exhaust from cold start-up.

Is this car going to last the year?? Should I use some sealit stuff in the coolant or leave alone.

Any advice, ideas greatly appreciated. Not too much laughing please!!!
