In Topic: Temp Gauge In The Red

Yesterday, 08:18 PM

well checked the car this morning and there was minimal ammount of coolant in the expansion bottle.

no emulsion on the oil cap or on the dipstick :).


so filled it up with some water and ran the engine,got up to temp fairly quickly and stayed there,

still no heat from the blower.

took the cap off and the bottle filled up instantly through pressure.is that normal???

then slowly refilled the system through gravity.

topped up a bit more,left the cap off and ran it,started to get some heat then it went cold.

looked at the bottle again and added some more,then ran the engine again revving the nuts off of it,then started to get some decent heat in the car.took it out and DROVE IT LIKE I STOLE IT temp gauge BANG on in the middle,lots of heat.

checked everything again and the coolant is steady and level.so maybe a bit of airlock going on to start with??

rad fan came on a few times and turned itself off after a few seconds so thats working as it should.


no leaks on the system i could see,so where the hell has all the coolant disapered to??


apparently the car this afternoon was driving like a dream so 1 happy mummy. :D

iirc whats needed is a toolbox talk?if its just basic type of work.

if your expecting him to use a spinner without the correct training and it goes fubared then your at fault.

but if he is a competent person and understands certain limitations on what he can cannot do then you have given him the required information your backside should be covered?.

plenty on info on the hse website.


do you use ladders?scaffolds etc these all require some training and licence etc.


what is your line of business?
