Re: Weird XD Problem
Ok, I know I started this thread a while ago, but the same problem is back again. A few weeks ago I parked the car at work, and as I walked around it, I noticed that there was radiator coolant running out onto the ground. It was a substantial amount, which seemed to be coming out of the overflow. I have seen this several times since, and now as a trial I let the car run with the radiator low, which seems to stop the problem. Obviously I'm not happy with this as a permanent solution, and If the car sits at traffic lights for any length of time the temp gauge goes up dramatically.
As I said in the Initial post, the radiator was reconditioned, the hoses, thermostat, water pump, and oil are all OK. My mechanic swears blind that there is no problem. "It just needs a good run" Yet the water situation, the starter motor being tempremental, and the fact that it generally runs like a dog, lead me to think otherwise.
If said mechanic wasn't my father, he'd be fired....
