    are you using a coolant? most coolants come with a rust protector.

    Use coolant. About 2 to3 liters.

    its about time to change it . huwag mo ng hintayin pa na magka butas yan at youll end up draining the coolant and next thing you know nag overheat ka na . this time kung maglagay ka ng coolant dapat 3 is to 1 , 3 ang coolant at 1 na tubig .

    hindi naman sya nag ooverheat!

    i forgot to add, ang bilis nyang maubusan ng tubig, kaya hindi ko nilalagyan ng coolant, nasasayang lang! pero ala naman akong makitang tulo niya pag lalagyan ko ng tubig! i pinalitan ko na rin yung radiator cap!

    sabi sa akin nung nagservice sa radiator ko, nangangalawang daw yung engine block at hindi yung radiator, copper daw radiator and never na mangangalawang ito! how true! :roll:

    probably thats what he told you para kung sira na sa kanila babalik , magkakabutas yan kung may kalawang dahil kakainin ng kalawang material then kung may butas tutulo coolant , then pag maubos kasi tumulo then overheat na .

    have you monitored the temps kung may pagbabago ba ?

    Hindi kaya sira headgasket mo kaya ka nawawalan ng tubig? O kayaga ni Glenn na may leak ang water pump.

    Most cooling systems today use aluminum components (even the ones that were on my former and your present Besta). Very prone to corrosion sila if you don't use at least 30% ethelyne-glycol coolant in the cooling system. Sa manual ng Besta 50/50 and recommended mix nila.

    Tapos nakalagay din dun kung every ilang kilometers mo kailangan mag-coolant flushing. Sensitive talaga coolant system ng Besta. Dapat alagang-alaga.

    fierari,
    hehehe! kakapagod di ba! :lol:

    so dapat pa tsek ko lahat ng dinadaan ng tubig? sana minor lang problem, regarding sa temperatur, normal sya, hindi nag ooverheat, ginamit ko na ito from pampanga to tagaytay twice, 4 times sa subic, and 5 times sa manila, dinadagdagan ko lang ng tubig pag nagstop over sa gasolinahan!

    salamat sa mga reply nyo mga tol! :D

    baka invisible yung leak... pero sigurado meron yang leak somewhere. have it serviced immediately, mas malaking abala pag ma-overheat ka ng di-oras.

    there was one case dati sa kotse.com na yung leak malapit sa exhaust daw, kaya mag tulo vaporize agad yung tubig sa init nung exhaust, kaya walang apparent leak.

    have your radiator overhauled na rin... and use a 50/50 ethylene glycol and distilled water mixture. this is just a one-time investment kasi hindi mo kailangan palitan ang coolant sa system for a long time (syempre kailangan leak-free yung system)
