Engine Cooling problem
1990 Daihatsu Charade 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 60000 miles
Hi guys, for the first ~5' after I start the car, I can hear a bubbling noise from under the bonet; the car "uses" water somehow, with no apparent leak.
I have to keep adding water to the reservoir otherwise it overheats. Aslo for the first time yesterday I noticed oil-mud like stuff on the radiator cap. Also for the first time I heard water gushing out 1' after I switched the engine off, rashed out, saw the water leaking from somewhere near the bottom of the engine, not from the radiator; by the time I got under (2'), everything was dry and couldn't locate the exact leaking spot.
What do you think the problem is?
thanks a lot
have the same problem?
