Hi Kemmybo - it is possible there is a leak between the water jacket and the outside of the cylinder head - without causing contamination of the engine oil - if this is the case then the engine compression is not compromised and will happily run until it either gets worse or runs out of coolant - I seen it numerous times and not only on renaults When cylinder head gaskets go it doesn't always mean the engine fails to operate
