Advice on Coolant leak please!
Need to top up my wifes Alfa GT 2.0 JTS every month - about 200ml (not a lot). Cant see any leaks and no mayonnaise in oil cap or header tank.
There is some pink 'deposits' around the main pipe running from the header tank connection, and from the other end of this pipe to the plastic rigid 'thing' that runs along the front of the cylinder head. I cant see it leaking when it is running though.
I have read about trapped air in the system. Would this cause the coolant level to drop? If so what would be the best way to bleed the system?
Similarly I have read the incorrect mixture of coolant fluid - would this also cause a drop in the coolant?
The seal on the header tank cap is good.
There is no real significant steam from the exhaust either
