Question about Cars & Trucks
Tappet cover is cracked And oil coming out from there also. Car was losing water .i changed the hose pipe. But it still carry on. I tried nt leak and it worked. But after 7 days water bottle light came on again. I open the bottle and I saw cream kind thing on the cap. I put another nt leak in radiator again. It looks ok now. But I am worried if it's not head gas kit. And it might cause more damage to engine. There is no smoke or over heating at all. Car loses power when going up the hill.

SOURCE: Water not staying in Radiator
yes, not having an overflow reservoir for your radiator will cause you to lose water. As your engine warms up the water expands and creates pressure in the cooling system. When the pressure reaches a certain point(usually about 15 psi.) the radiator releives the pressure by releasing water into the overflow tank. When the engine cools back down the water shrinks pulling water back into the radiator from the overflow. If there is no overflow, the everytime the engine warms up on a drive water will be lost and not recovered on cooldown.
