Question about 1997 Bentley Turbo
HI. This issue has many causes. I will list the most common causes below.
Coolant consumption::: Possible causes______
1. Check the head gaskets. The gasket may be leaking.(Internal leakage)
2. Check The Intake Manifold Gasket. This gasket may be leaking, worn, or damaged
3. Check the cylinder head for worn or scorn cylinder block.(This will require total breakdown of the engine)
Now that we have covered the basic check points for coolant consumption, i would advise to concentrate on the head gaskets if there are no apparent leaks on or around the engine itself. If the head gaskets are worn, the leak can be introduced to the engine internally, causing the engine to burn off the coolant. this is noticeable by removing the oil cap, after a hard drive. you Will notice steam that will escape the head as soon as you remove the cap. If this is the case, your problem will be with a failed head gasket.
IN a severe case, you will notice white puffs of smoke escaping from the tail pipe during acceleration.

When this happens, that means the system wasn't truely full or has air. Usually a person can fill the coolant system once, then run the vehicle, all the coolant in the radiator will go into engine block. When the coolant is in the engine block, then the radiator is low or empty because the coolant is in the engine.
When filling a radiator or coolant system, it is best to do it with engine running and radiator cap off. You can also burp the top radiator hose while filling the system to remove the air and help push the coolant into the engine block so then you can fill the entire system. Engine block and coolant system both need to be full of coolant.
