Hey guys car I have an '03 Astra Mk4 turbo with about 60K kms, just noticed about a week ago that coolant was leaking out of the coolant reservoir (the one at the top right hand side of the bonnet). So I bought some gasket goo and sealed it up (it was leaking from the join - it is a two piece design). Anyway left it for a few days then the coolant warning thing came on the dash. So topped up the coolant and noticed it is now leaking from the point at which the rubber hose joins the coolant reservoir. Also noticed there is a hell of a lot pressure and heat coming out of it...
I was thinking of just buying a new reservoir but now not sure if this would be a waste of money as there may be so much unusual pressure/heat that the new one will just break too. Anyone experienced this problem.
Also just two observations:
1) The temp gauge on the dash has gone no-where near half way so far.
2) After a long drive you turn the car off and take the keys out and despite the heat there is no radiator fan running. Put the keys in and turn accessories on (without starting car) and fans run. Is this normal as well?
