As long as the coolant is full, You won't have problems with heat. Check the rest of the system for leaks. Can't find a leak and still gets low. 2 possibilities. Heater core is leaking or head gasket is leaking. I would lean towards the heater core because of the water inside.
one item often overlooked in an overheating case is the radiator cap. it won't hold enough pressure to allow proper circulation of the coolant. it is the cheapest part of the cooling system. replace it and then look to the fans or fan clutch and the carpet area in the passenger footwell for leaking coolant in the floorboard from the heater core. test the cooling system with a pressure tester. is there trash or bugs blocking the fins of the radiator?? Is the coolant level proper and the right ratio 50/50 mix
hi.ok things you need to check is the cooling fan going on,is the water circulating check this by feeling on your pypes temp anr checking inside coolant bottol for a strong stream,then check for coolant leaks,remove termostat put it in boiling water and check if its opening.if these things are ok and water is not curculating check coolant pump if thats ok send veh for a cemical test to check if head gasket is not blown.hope this helps
i am looking for a copy of the owners manual for a 2005/6 fiat strada 1.2el bakkie as we have lost the manual and i have now bought the bakkie from my company and need to do repairs i.e. the heater box is broken as water is leaking inside the bakkie - i need to know do i replace the complete heater box or what and also how do i replace it
Your coolant level should be going down too, so to confirm leak at core, check that. Just in case it's water leaking in elsewhere. Can you smell the antifreeze inside? Does it do it even on dry days, no rain? Double check hose connections are good & tight where they connect to heater core at firewall. Have seen a couple of bad connections allow coolant to leak inward to vehicle. System pressure test will confirm also.
