Coolant Drop after Repairs
you may know my 159 had a lot of work done to the front end (inc new radiators) after it got smacked.
Hadn't checked it since I got it back around 20th Dec, but done about 3-400 miles on it, and noticed the coolant level was well below the minimum.
Had some spare coolant which I topped it up with (about half litre) , assuming it may have been air bubbles etc after the work. After 30-40miles, found it back down to minimum, topped it up again, will see how it goes though, how much could I expect it to drop by? Or should I contact the garage if I see it drop any more?
Had a look down the front, and there seems to be a fair amount of 'sludge' (i.e dirt on some liquid) down a large pipe coming out the front on the engine, and on the undertray, but that may have been dropped during the work.
Anything thoughts thankfully received
