RADIATOR LEAKAGE AND AC PROBLEMS

2003 SEAT Ibiza

Engine Cooling problem
2003 SEAT Ibiza 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 52000 miles

Goodday Last night I went out for supper and about 10 min into my meal the valet service called me saying that the car was leaking water. Upon inspection I saw it was coolant from the cooling system, almost emtying the reservoir. I immediately filled the reservoir with the coolant fluid I keep in the car. When I drove home the temp climbed to about 110 and then dropped again to 90. This morning I checked and the reservoir was at the level I left it.
2nd the cars AC works wonderfully at cruising speeds around 100km but when I have to stop at a signal it warms up. What could be the problem?
Thanks

Have the a/c system checked for leaks and re-gassed. You need to discover where the coolant leak was from !Have the system pressure tested !
