My car is having a coolant problem.It all starts when the car overheats and all the coolant goes through the cap.That happens when the car is parked and the engine is swicth off. So we just refill it with water and call it a day. But the problem now is the car always loss a lot of coolant.
I refill it with water up to the top level and leave it for a night. The next day I start, the OBC says “LOW COOLANT”. So I check the coolant level, it’s almost empty. Where did the coolant go? When I refill, I don’t see any water dripping below the car and I even and use it for the day. I come back and check the level, its ok. But the next day, the level would be low again. Why is that? The car has 43k Miles and it regularly service.
I actually did some googling. i found this pelican article regarding E36 coolant.
The whole country was in flood but it doesn't effect my journey. I was driving and the temperature start to rise and I stop over the road side. Yes coolant was splasing all over. I call the towing compant to pull the car to the shop. So I end up riding in the truck
The main cause is the screw shown in pics above. The seals are worn out. They change that and bleed the systme to chekc for leaks. No indication of leaks.
And I drove back to the house(45 mins), No problem so far....and I check...The coolant it's stil at its level.
So I assume it's Ok for now.
Thanks for the help guys
