Hi Greg, the mech. at the garage has put a new rad.on the car but water still blowing out of expansion tank and has bled all air out of engine following all your instructions.the expansion tank dos'nt hold water above the min mark on the bottle? temp. gauge stays normal car runs fine but afraid if I take it for a long run could I ruin the engine by it boiling dry? could the heater matrix be a problem?
Hi GREG, I know its been a while but the problem is still there the coolant level has to remain just below the min mark on the coolant bottle or it just spits it out and the warning light comes on constant telling me to top up coolant level. The engine temp.is always normal? no over heating,do I just have to live with it and keep checking my coolant level?
There is a new cap in fact a second one now? grasping at straws could it be that radiators hold slightly different amounts of water? or the water channels on the replaced engine hold different amounts of water?
