I am a little perplexed with the coolant level on the new to me Superb. Owned about 2 weeks and it had a cambelt kit before I picked it up. Currently on 87k done about 600 miles in it now.
i have topped up from minimum at cold to max with g12 and today with water.
I have not had a warning even when at min. I ran the car today with the cap off 1.5k revs until reached 90. The level is above max when hot. No hissing when cap removed earlier.
Is this normal for the coolant level to be at min? I have heard some say it's how some cars are. I am not new to VAG or Skoda. This car feels different.
I am also still coming to terms with the needle going to 90 slowly. It did that one cold morning recently, again been fine since that day.
Need some help radiator changed on the car. Some G13 put in but I don't think there was enough maybe 1lt.
How much do I need really as I will buy another 1.5lt bottle/a today?
What is the capacity of the cooling system and would all of the coolant have been lost when the radiator was swapped?
Where can I drain some excess liquid from on the circuit, bottom of radiator have a drain plug ?
Thanks in advance
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)?
