  • just a quickie on coolant levels

    just topping up my windscreen wash and noticed the coolant was half way below the correct level.... i don't think i have a leak, but is it normal for it to go down so much, theres condensation at the top of the bottle so i'm guessing its just due to the heat?

    When was the lastime you checked it buddy?? It sounds like it has gone down quite abit, make sure you keep a beedy eye on your coolant levels every couple of days and i you notice it going down there must be a leak as i barely have to top mine up at all. Best to be safe and get it looked at if your unsure mate.

      My Corsa was using quite a bit of coolant then some days it wouldnt use any at all. Turned out i had a Crack in my Radiator which is quite common in the Corsa. Take it to vauxhall and my money is you'll need a new Rad all under warranty though so not to worry.

      If you look down towards your fan to the right u might see the little airline fracture or lines wheres its been squirting

          can't remember the last time i checked, i'll keep an eye on it over the next week, hopefully its nothing. but i presume it hasent been topped since the last big service over a year and a 9 months ago.

              i have checked it in the past and i think the level was at the top, how it should be..... i also checked it today after a 50mile drive, the levels havent changed since yesterday.

                Most decent will pay a substantial amount of te cost as a gesture of food will. It's better you pay at least some of it anyway as you then get another years warranty on those parts.
