Hey all! Just a quick question as i'm having trouble finding a mechanic during lockdown. Brought the Astra 1.3 cdti SE mk5 2010 just over a month ago. Yesterday took her for a 1hr drive and I had the spanner light come up on the dashboard, stopped had a look and saw/heard nothing out of the ordinary. Partner checked in the day to find a think sludge (consistency of sand/copper/mud) stuck to top of coolant tank and in the coolant too. I've researched around and most places say it's other a blown head gasket or a cylinder. However, all the photos i've seen to do with contaminated coolant look nothing like mine. I'm just looking for advice to see if it's anything of concern or something normal for astras like this. Will attach a photograph of the "sludge" so you guys have an idea.

Thank you guys!
