Re: Coolant alarm going off on roundabout

If the coolant is fairly new just put a half pint of water in and report back. A bit of extra water won’t make hardly any difference.
Or
Dip the tank.....get a dry stick and dip the tank vertically, you should show about 1inch of wet stick after dipping. DO this when COLD.

Re: Coolant alarm going off on roundabout

Stick half a pint of coolant in... level is 3cm lower when cold compared to hot.

Re: Expansion tank cap wrong pressure

To check the rad, look at the neck below the cap, if there is no spigot then you have a sealed rad and you can put a non pressure cap on.
However, I would just leave everything as it is.

Re: Expansion tank cap wrong pressure

Depending on the type of radiator fitted, if the rad has a vent like the expansion tank, I would expect the rad to have a 1.1bar cap and the tank a 0.9bar cap.........you don’t want the rad to vent before the tank. If the rad is the non venting type I don’t really think it matters much which cap you...

Re: What do I need to do on my new Bongo

A point to note, if you fit just a Temp Alarm, it could happen that your coolant leaks away overnight, drive off in the morning and you could be a couple of miles down the road before the Temp Alarm goes off...very inconvenient..... if you had a LCA fitted it would sound as soon as the ignition is s...

Re: What do I need to do on my new Bongo

A low coolant alarm - alone - which is the critical item is around £80 either direct from the site /ebay whatever, its only more expensive if you add extra temperature alarms.
