In Topic: Water Pouring Out

I called Kwikfit (who did the job on Saturday) and they said that their equipment may not have detected a tiny leak in the system and I'm taking it back to them this Saturday. Let's hope it works for a bit longer this time or I may get to know them pretty well!

All best.

Hi there.

Thanks for your note. We discounted the Heater Control (that went on my first Puma).

My b-in-law spent hours online trying to find a reason / solution and also came up with the thermostat seal. That was replaced yesterday, he ran the car for about 20 minutes with no water leaking, no overheating. And then we went for a drive in it and half a mile up the road, indicator crept into the red. Pulled over, let a bit of steam out of the expansion tank, and we carried on. Took it for a 20 mile round trip and seems to be all okay.

I'll keep an eye on both coolant level and temp guage over next couple of weeks, but fingers crossed that's cured it.

The only thing now, bizarrely, is that the aircon which was regassed on Saturday, working on Monday, is now not working. Any ideas?
