With much difficulty i replaced the thermostat today but it seems there's a problem.
There is a slow drip coming from the bottom of the housing, im assuming this is obviously a leak. I followed the how to guide, but i didnt use any sealant as it had a small rubber seal already on place.
I started the car and there's a lot of smoke coming from that area presumably because the coolant is leaking and burning off?
Im just annoyed now, should i deffo have used some sort of silicone sealant around the thermostat?
