Can anyone help me, the electrical waterpump started leaking water yesterday at a fair rate from around the top pipe/seal area on the pump.
Seeming as it was running out at a fair rate, and not being able to get at the pump to try and tighten down the screws. Need the car during the week for work...although its not a massive drive, my workplace is arkward to get to by public transport, and my own commitments after work.
So i tried some radweld, had it in a 1.8 and never had any problems at all.
Popped the bonnet when i got to work this morning....to find the top half of the expansion bottle full of foam. Left the cap off to see if letting the pressure settle would help....as i had to loose the pressure to add the Radweld.
Got home tonight after being in traffic for a hour, and the same again.
Not creating any running problems and cant imagine its sucking any foam back through, as its sat ontop of the remaining water in the tank.
Temps have risen a couple of degrees but expected that as my 1.8 did that too...running about 82-83 degrees C atm.
So does anyone have any idea why its foaming, and what i can do apart from flush the system out to stop it foaming while i can get the electric pump....and have timing belt and water pump done with a system flush too.
Timing belts due in another 5k but may aswell do it now.
