Coolant Loss Mk4 2Ltr Diesel

12 March 2014 - 08:42 PM

Hi Folks. I seem to be losing coolant over a period of time. I'll be honest I cant specify how soon its disappearing just yet but have started to work on this as of yesterday when I topped the bottle to max. I can say though, that having driven the car today mainly at motorway speeds a distance of approximately 30 miles the coolant has dropped from the max mark by 4 or 5 millimetres. I've checked the injectors and there dry having heard this could be a sign of head cracked. The oil is clean no mayo. And fan kicks in when temperature gauge hits just over half. Can anyone suggest possible leakage points. Car has 64000 on the clock and is a 2.0litre zetec. Don't know wether it makes any difference but expansion tank has a black top. Cheers in advance to anyone who can help.
