Coolant level

Recommended Posts

george
Guys i have noticed that the level of my coolant in the expansion tank, is slowly dropping..
I am talking about half an inche for the last 5100 miles..
A very small amount, but i wanted to know if you have noticed anything similar..
Is your coolant level constant?

I had that problem..it was the two big hose clamps on the water pump...to correct the problem I just used a pair of pliers and rotated the clamps about a 1/4" ...I noticed cuz I saw very very lil water drops down the water pump tube...

Its shouldn't… at least within the normal service interval. Either its leaking or being burnt thru combustion chamber. Didn't you mention seeing coolant weeping out the WP weep hole? There you go, there's your leak. Fix it!

Only oil was leaking from weep hole..
I have checked the pipes and the radiator cap for leaking and i found nothing..
Also oil and coolant have the colour the should have..

To be honest I would just top it up to the line and keep a eye on it,
could be just evaporation or if this is over the first 5000 miles it
could be just a small air lock finding it's way out. check all clips
top up and keep a eye on it.
