Question about 1992 Holden Barina
Barina XC 2001. Coolant leaks after car stops. No apparent leak while driving. No sign of leaks from hoses, no hissing or steam visible, just quite leaking from tray under radiator which stops after a couple of minutes. Is there a pressure relief valve in the radiator? Could it be faulty or do I just have a leak that occurs under pressure after coolant stops circulating when engine is stopped? Overflow tank is almost empty and this still occurs.
Water pumps do this.

The Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for correct spec for your make and engine type.
