2.0 JTS coolant loss?
Hey guys. Noticed the coolant in my 2.0 JTS Alfa GT seems to be disappearing. I have checked all the connecting pipes and hoses and cant for the life of me see any leaks.
There is a couple of pink 'salty' deposits around the main coolant pipe to the expansion tank and the plastic 12" pipe just above the alternator (runs along the front of the head) but these are definatly not leaking when running.
The seal is good on the expansion tank cap. There is no mayo in the oil and the coolant is not discoloured in any way. There is no white smoke from exhaust neither.
I am positive it is loosing a small amount. I need to put perhaps a couple of hundred mililitres in a month. If I let the car run until it is up to temperature, then take the expansion cap off, the coolant level rises to the max mark.
Am I being paranoid or is this normal for a jts engine. I know oil loss in normal.
