Hey got a problem, which may be very small or very big.....
Last night on the way home my mfd flashed up "coolant level" so i thought hmm.... i never use coolant and then steam came out from the left hand side of the bonnet, so i pulled over and checked everything, found no split hoses and no coolant left in the system, the only thing i can trace it to be is the coolant cap releasing it, which to me says either a faulty cap or problem with the cylinder head / gasket
Anyway at the side of the road i put coolant back in and it held the coolant, i put the cap on and the system did pressurise, i let it rung for 10-15 mins and all was fine so decided to drive the rest of the way home, but after another 10 mins driving the light came on again but no steam so thought it may of had an air lock and just kept an eye on the temp gauge and it didnt go above half, got home and all the coolant in the tank was gone again.... So this morning topped it back up and drove to work, nearly all the way to work and the light came on aagin, got to work and the coolant had gone again!
So i know ive got a problem, are the caps prone to be faulty over time, or is it over pressurising and chucking the coolant out meaning its probable the head / gasket??
Any info will be helpful!
So iv got a new cap coming from vx today as they keep them on the shelf, also going to do a block test after work to see what that says,
