FORD FAIR – SILVERSTONE – 6TH AUGUST 2017
Join us on the Ford Owners Club stand at Ford Fair, Silverstone on Sunday 6th August 2017.
Hello. I'll start by saying i'm not overly technical, and so this may look a bit ditzy to read :) I have a Ford KA ('99), bought second hand from a second hand dealership in december. The other week i noticed the engine coolant was running low, in the tank/bottle thing on the right side under the bonnet. So i filled it up, and obviously didn't do up the filler cap properly, as it is no longer there. Neither is any of the anti-freeze which i poured in on sunday, which by the looks of things appears to have splashed out onto all other things under the bonnet. I poured in another half bottle, with the engine off, and that dissapeared from the tank and down into wherever it goes. There's some on the floor, though i assume this just comes from the residue left after it all escaped due to the lack of the cap. I guess my question is: - Is the apparent lack of coolant even after i've topped up something to be worried about? - And if not where can i get a replacement cap from / what can i use as a replacement? Apologies if none of that was overly clear :) Thanks
