    ano po ba dapat i-check pag masyado ng matakaw sa tubig ang radiator? matakaw as in sa umaga bagong refill sya. pero pagdating ng hapon halos wala ng tubig (eh sa work lng nman sa makati ako nagpunta). buti na lang lagi ako me 2 gallons of water na dala kaya naaagapan ang overheating. but i find this very abnormal and alarming.

    i'm driving a corolla xl 89.

    salamat posa makakapagbigay ng payo.

    Aside from checking the radiator and reservoir for leaks, check the hoses and change your radiator cap (especially kung di pa napapalitan)...

    Is there a constant drippping of water when you start the engine? If there is, it could be your water pump is busted/borken... this usually happens with old cars. Just make sure that the water dripping isnt from the A/C system.

    may leak nga system mo. korek si vinj, just follow what he said. with the rate your water is disappearing, you won't have a hard time finding the leak. [/code]

    most probably radiator cap... nung sira na akin, i had to refill almost daily, nung pinalitan ko yung cap, mga once every 2-3weeks nalang... kung di traffic, almost once a month lang ako nagrerefill sa reservoir (not the radiator itself)
