Coolant level problem.....
Over the last few weeks I have had a problem with my coolant level in the reservoir.
The typical scenario is as follows:
I get home from work after a journey of 20 miles or so and I check the level in the tank – it’s usually about hafway.
This morning I checked the level (engine was cold as had been left overnight) and it had risen to about a couple of inches below the top of the tank.
I was a bit worried about this so drained some of it off down to the halfway-mark level and drove to work. When I got to work there is hardly any coolant left in the tank.
The car is driving fine. The temp gauge is as expected when warmed up..
I took the cap off and ran the engine just in case there was an airlock but there was no sign of one.
I suspect a faulty reservoir cap as it’s a bit fiddly to undo sometimes….
