    teka, baka naman sobra lang ang coolant/water mo sa system?

    If your car is running tapos pinuno mo yung reservoir aapaw talaga yan. Usually pag cool yung engine nasa half or less lang ang laman ng reservoir dapat.

    Baka you filled up the reservoir too much while the car is still in motion.

    Good thing I see this thread.

    I used the Crosswind of my father-in-law last Sunday and had it carwashed and checked at Petron. Pinataas ko and I found out na nagli-leak yung coolant. It's coming from the bottom tube, pinahigpitan ko pero tumutulo pa rin although hindi naman kalakasan pero napansin ko na siguro medyo matagal ng tumatagas kasi yung mga tinamaan ng coolant parang nagmantsa na. Then, nakita namin na mas mataas pa pala sa tube yong pinanggagalingan ng leak. Ano kaya ang pwede namin gawin? dadalhin ko kaya sa casa, kakatapos lang kasi ng warranty daw last July. Ayaw na rin kasi sa casa din ng biyenan ko dahil sa hindi sya satisfied sa pag-maintain ng sasakyan nya doon, feeling nya niloko lang daw sya for the past 2 years at hindi talaga na-maintain ng maayos. So, saan ko kaya pwedeng dalhin ang sasakyan for this problem?

    Sir Bistro,

    As a rule, kapag tumataas temp mo sa stop and go traffic--thermostat. Pero pinalitan mo na thermostat, right? Kaya umaapaw tubig sa reservoir mo ay di kasi bumabalik sa radiator AND sobra na ang lagay mo. Pagnaglalagay ka ba ng tubig ay sa radiator mismo or sa reservoir? Water level sa reservoir should be as recommended: between the MAX and MIN. Normally, when you turn off the engine, heated water goes to reservoir (kaya di dapat punong-puno ng tubig ito, otherwise tatapon talaga). when the engine cools off, water will go back to the radiator--this is assuming na intact ang VACUUM ng system mo. In this case mukhang may leak sa system: Causes include: butas sa radiator at hoses, reservoir cover, gaskets, etc... Waterpump, pwede, kasi you have overheating. Usually pag nagoverheat ang kotse, esp kung umabot sa redline at namatay ang makina, nasisira ang gasket. mural lang naman ang waterpump ng liteace at gasket change. Make sure lang na hindi sunog ang pistons because of frequent overheating. Remember, masama ang madalas nagooverheat. Marami talagang masisira y an.

    Just my humble opinion.

    waterpumps will leak when sira na sila. normally di naman sila titigil umikot kasi they are belt driven. kung walang leak wag mo palitan yung waterpump.

    that happened to me before, i just changed the radiator cap because according to the mechanic, the spring is no longer working. it solved the problem. and fill the reservoir to the specified level only.mtcw
