Smile 740 il 2000 Heater

Hello all, My 740IL has been leaking steering fluid for a while, just kept filling it back every 2 weeks, not the heater stopped work, just spitting cold air. Any suggestions on whats wrong with it?

have you checked you water level...and not just the expation tank check the rad when cold if you squash the upper rad hose you should hear the water flush into the reserve tank...if it dosen't you may be overheating your motor...with low fluid levels..

Where is the fluid leaking from? as for the cold air only, I know it sounds daft but has anybody moved the roll wheel in the centre dash vents to blue ?? if thats on red could be your thermostat or heater matrix which maybe gone or just blocked.
