Steaming from engine compartment
I've got a 159 1.9jTDM which has done 21K in about 9 months and all is well apart from a curious issue with the above. Its just had its first service at a main dealer and they can't help so I thought I'd ask here.
The issue is that when I thrash it along for about 10/15 miles then when I arrive at the inevitable roundabout or traffic lights then I get quite alarming volumes of steam coming out of the radiator grill and the wheel arches. If I go steady then it doesn't happen and if the distance before I have to slow/stop is longer than this then it doesn't occur.
I'm not losing any water from any of the reservoirs.
I suppose I could always take it easy but that's not really an option is it.
