    Hi mga fellow tsikot members.

    Just want to ask kung normal ba magbawas ang coolant reservoir ng water around half glass or maybe 100 ml in

    a month. My ride is isuzu crosswind just replaced with new radiator. My friend says dapat hindi nagbabawas ng ganung

    karaming tubig in a month. What do you think? ano kaya problem checked hoses wala naman akong nakitang leak.


    thank you

    it is not normal for 100cc fluid loss in a month. if you have not found the leak, it maybe that your cooling system needed to be bled of air pockets just like bleeding the brake system. the other possibility is that your radiator cap might not hold pressure under load or the pressure gasket is not sealing liquid tight. the radiator cap leak usually does not leave a trace of spilled coolant since the air flow from the ram air or the radiator fan accelerates its evaporation. you can add a leak detection dye mixed with the antifreeze to show forensics the evidence of the leak

    First question is: Gaano mo ba kadalas gamitin ang sasakyan mo?
    Second: Gaano katagal?
    Third: Usually gaano kalalayo?
    Lastly: Usually mga ano oras?

    This are the important questions should be considered..

    I used it everyday. avg. of 20km or around 2hrs travel time. on weekdays when I go to work in the morning and go

    home at night. on weekends iba iba oras. around 500 to 550 km a month.


    hi Jick,

    paano bleed cooling system? possible ba kulang lang sa coolant. I just put 1 lit Prestone concentrated coolant.

    Worry ko kasi on Xmas vacation I might go out of town, you know ibang story pag long distance high rev and long
    travel time baka biglang magkaroon ng major leak. I looked everywhere wala akong makitang leak maybe because

    very minimal kaya hindi makita.

    Thank you

    to bleed: simply remove cap then start engine and let it warm-up up to operating temp. upon reaching operating temperature, you may race the engine several times. some people do it on a slightly sloping ground with the front of the car on a higher elevation.

    Hindi normal nga kung nagbabawas ng ganun kadami, yun nga pwedeng possible cause kung walang mga leak, yung radiator cap

    the bleeder screw is usually adjacent to or at the thermostat housing. some cars use the same brake bleeder screw for coolant bleeder. nissans use a short 5mm screw (10 mm head) and has a gold in color tag telling you it is the bleeder. on isuzu, look for the highest part where the antifreeze will pass through. if your radiator does not have a pressure cap but instead on the recovery bottle, it is a closed loop system and bleeds itself

    Check also your radiator cap if its fitting properly with the new radiator.

    Yung radiator cap medyo mahigpit. I mean maybe because the radiator is new. I'll buy a new radiator cap so I'll

    see kung ito nga.

    thanks
