Rover 45 problem with water leaking

In response to your last mailing - firstly thanks for taking the time to answer and secondly your answer makes sense; however didn't make any reference to the loss of water - where would this water be leaking out to- any idea?? My dad did say something about the thermostat, could it be linked to this at all would you know... How serious a problem before it affects the costly head gasket??
Thanks again

Hi sorry if this response is a little late,,, i aint been on for a while,,, the thermostat could cause the heat problem but if you loosing coolant it has to go somewhere,,, check for dripping anywhere under the car and around the cylinder head,, the head gasket can leak 1 of 2 ways out of the head/into the head but lets rule that out for now as now over heating,, if you have had the waterpump replaced go for the thermostat it should cure the problem ,
Hope this isnt too late, let me know if you need anymore help

First thing to make sure is the fluid level in the power steering is not low, if so add fluid. Second if it still do that, means power steering pump is wearing out (bearings) seals if leaking. Hope this helps you the area to first check, thanks Mike

Most vehicle Mfg.'s do not want you to access the radiator, so they put in overflow tanks.
You can add coolant there. You will find it under the hood next to the interior fender.
Only check or add coolant when the engine is cool.
I would start looking for a coolant leak. Vehicles are not supposed to leak or lose their coolant.
Check for green coolant spots on the ground where you park your vehicle.
Please let me know what you find.

Car heating has failed only blowing cold air this is on a rover 45 on a 52 plate i am entering any modrl in description as no rover is available

this is quite a common problem on some of the older rovers (especially the metro). gunk n deposits over time slowly block up the heater matrix and reduce the flow of water through it this will reduce the heat coming out. however there maybe another reason

a few things to check first, start the car and let it idle. once its running for a while, make sure the temperature on the engine gets to its normal place then try the heaters see if there is any change in there heating. if there is no heat at all at this point its possible either the heater matrix behind the dashboard has blocked up or the regulator valve controlling the flow of warm water into the heaters has broken.

check the drivers and passengers footwells if there wet to the touch, (not slightly damp) its a strong possibility that the heater matrix has broken or is leaking and thus not warming up like normal (this will need to be fixed ASAP as it will eventually drain all your engines coolant).

hope this helps.

Just changed all the hoses & thermostat on my 2000 land rover (over 100k) discovery last week. Now noticed antifreeze leaking under water pump- suspect it's going bad, am I correct?

yes. there is a small weep hole in the snout of the water pump. if you see the coolant coming from there, it's time to replace it. coolant could also be leaking out of the front cover seal. but that would be lower than the water pump. check it well.

Abs and traction contol light up

I'd have the brake accumulator checked. Try this. From a cold start, e.g., an overnight stop, release the handbrake (as it also operates the dash berake light), start the engine, and time how long it takes for the brake light on the instrument panel to go out. If it's up near 45 seconds, your accumulator is probably on the way out. They do fail after some years.
