I have a mk1 fabia vrs and have just recently had the coolant all drained and replaced with the correct G12 coolant. A week on and I am loosing coolant very quickly (I've had the coolant light come on 2 times in 4 days). Also on top of the coolant is a large amount of white foam and when I undo the coolant cap a huge amount of pressure is released and the coolant comes right up to the top and spills out no matter how slowly i release the pressure. HELP WHAT IS GOING ON?
Hi. Just had a full service and unlike on previous services, the coolant and oil is sitting between min and max. Typically, these have both been at the max level after a service. Should I feel ripped off, or is this typical and I was just lucky before? I was charged for 4.6 litres of oil. Thank you.
The local skoda dealer did a visual health check (as part of the diagnostics for a Bolero touch screen issue) on my car and came back to me saying "coolant strength on min spec -25'c advise coolant change". They explained it to me saying the skoda recommended strength is -35'c (or this is what I understood). They did say that while this is not a big issue (being in UK) it is not what the company recommends.
What I am wondering is I bought this car from them about 4-5 months ago and they did claim to have done all the PDI checks etc before the delivery where every aspects of the car was apparently looked into.
Can someone please advise me if I am correct in assuming the PDI check was not correctly done and they used wrong coolant? If so, I am planning to go back to them asking for an explanation. Or does the strength of coolant change when being used (the car has done about 5500 miles during the mean time)?
(I couldn't search for similar topic as it seems the search function is still getting indexed)
Just a quick one this morning. On my commute to work my coolant gauge went to 110°C this morning, this is the first time it has ever happened.
No excessive speed max about 60mph, car is due a service in the next 1,000 miles. The fans did kick in and brought it back down to 90° but is there any reason for this to happen.
Any help is much appreciated.
