REPLACED WATER BOTTLE & CAP. AFTER SHORT DRIVE WHEN ENGINE IS SWITCHED OF PRESSURE BUILDS UP & WATER PUSHES OUT THROUGH BREATHER ON WATER BOTTLE. WATER LEVEL DROPS BELOW MIN. WHAT CAN BE THE...
Hi,lets start at the begining,resons for this can be,firmastat not working properly,fan switch not working properly so fan dose not switch on,waterpump not working properly so not pumping water around properly,radiater got sludge in it so is not cooling properly,or headgasket broken,
first start engine and wait for car to start up then when the tempreture gage gose up to normal running temp lisson for the fan if it dosnt come on proberly temp-switch for the fan,if fan dose come on switch engine off and check that the hoses to the rad are bouth hot,if that is ok,wait for the car to cool down a bit so you can take off the exspantion tank-cap put a cloth or some thing over the cap as there is a lot of presure and hot water,so be carfull not to burn yourself,
when done start car and look to see if the water is moveing around freely if so then the pump must be ok swich engine off,last one take of the oil-filler-cap and look at the oil it should be brown in coulor,if its a musterd coulor then it means the head-gasket has gone,well although ive sied all this thay have a tool on the market wich the garage use to pump presure in the water system wich shows up eney leeks,if you are loseing water apart from the bubbling water that comes out of the exspantion tank that will show it up,I wish you the best and hope its one of the miner jobs.
