Engine Cooling problem
1993 Other Peugeot Models 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 120000 miles

I added a water reservoir bottle to my peugot engine radiator outflow. The engine cooling system did not have one. Instead it had normal water outlet pipe.

Recently water formation inside tapitt cover was detected.

After varification with your engineers that the head and the gasket were OK, I have another query that - can adding a water reservoir bottle to the radiator that does not have a water ouverflow pipe, be causing water formation inside the tapit cover?

Hi there,

The moisture under the rocker cover will be condensation, if you tend to drive the car on lots of short trips the engine won't reach normally operation temp and this can cause condensation to form, if you have a problem with coolant entering the engine you oil will become emulsified and turn a coffee colour (normally)
