Re: Engine coolant mostly gone

I'm actually monitoring the oil and coolant level. My leak dye didn't arrive, but at this rate I don't think I need it anymore. I think if it's all ok by the end of today, it's pretty much solved. I will drain the water and sealant solution out and pour in new coolant.

Re: Engine coolant mostly gone

I’m still monitoring it, a few days now and no loss of coolant. I think if this holds up for the next few days, then I can say the leak problem has been solved.

Re: Project 2 : front mount SA GTV 3.0 - Sei diff

I was thinking of getting my dash covered in an alcantara/suede style material. So instead of the wrinkle stuff, need fury stuff. MD, any suggestions? :lol:

Re: Engine coolant mostly gone

I've put the K-Seal in. Before putting it in, I mixed it thoroughly with warm water. Ran the car till about 85C and shut it off. Radiator is not in the car and I will drain the fluid and remove all the K-Seal stuff that's in the engine. Once it's all gone and only the part needed to seal the small l...

Re: Engine coolant mostly gone

Pretty sure it's a liner seal problem as I had no overheating problems 2 weeks ago at the track. I think I can summarize it as follows: Over-pressurized coolant bottle when engine is warm: leaking head gasket at the fire ring. Combustion gas getting into the coolant. Coolant in oil but not oil in co...
