Engine Cooling problem
1996 Honda Civic 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 96,000 miles
The coolant expansion tank is losing water somehow.
It doesn't appear to be leaking - no cracks or splits in the plastic tank evident, no wet patches, drips or stains.
The radiator level remains full, but having filled the expansion tank to the Max level, the water disappears, leaving a small amount in the bottom which still covers the inlet/outlet pipe from the radiator.
The thermostat seems to be working fine, quickly reaches operating temperature and maintains it.
Mystified over where the water is going and why. Any ideas?
have the same problem?
