Question about Suzuki Vitara
Just had my 1.6 head recond. as radiator cap was faulty and cooked the motor, now all is back working except for water leak somewhere in the motor it would seem. My mechanic who did the repair has unfortunetly passed away and he was aware of the problem and had suggested that he would re-o-ring the drain plug, but I have done this and water is still disappearing, no visible leaks, no water in the oil and I just pressure tested the radiator & motor and it appears OK. Any suggestion would be appreciated.. Thanks Bori.
Check to make sure the thermostat housing isn't leaking. as this is a common problem on rebuilt motors. the only other place i can think of is to check the freeze plugs, not usually the case. also check water pump.
hope this helps.
please rate good.
