Question about 1995 Land Rover Range Rover
Hello, My name is Oscar and I´m from Portugal I have a Range Rover classic from 1995. Recently the car is loosing water from the cooler thank. However, I dont know the source of the problem, because there is no water falling anywhere. Could it be the water pump? Please help me giving some you expert advise. Thanks in advance!
If water is disappearing and is not spilling out, it's evaporating. This can happen in many different situations. Here are a few:
1.Cylinder head gasket may be blown (if it's a tiny hole, you won't notice much difference driving, but heat from the engine's combustion can be boiling the water).
2. Also, you may have a leak somewhere and you just happen to not see it when the car is idle. The water in the radiator will stay in the radiator until the engine has reached a high enough temperature to open the thermostat and let the water circulate.
3. When radiator was filled, it may not have been done properly (i.e. you need to bleed out the air) otherwise, pressure builds up and it may be releasing the water all at once while you're driving (through the radiator expansion tank)
First thing to do is fill up expansion tank with water, leave the cap off and turn car on. check to see if there are any bubbles in the water that's in the tank. If you see bubbles, it's most probably the cylinder head gasket.
if not, try bleeding the water system properly, until there's no air inside the circuit. you should have a bleed-screw somewhere on top of your radiator or expansion tank.
hope this helps
