HI , I BOUGHT THE 2.4 AUTO TARAGO GLI 4 WEEKS AGO AND THE TEMPERATURE WAS SITTING ABOUT 1/2 WAY WITH THE AIRCON ON . EVERTHING WAS FINE UNTIL THE OTHER DAY . THE COOLANT WAS SPITTING OUT OF THE RESEVOIR AND THE TEMPERATURE WAS ON THE RED . I TOP IT UP AND IT WAS FINE .THEN I TRAVELLED ABOUT 300 K'S AND IT HAPPENED AGAIN . THERE ARE NO VISIBLE LEAKS . IS THERE ANY WAY TO TELL IF IT'S THE WATER PUMP OR SOMETHING ELSE . CAN IT USE ETHONOL FUEL . CHEERS

Hi CityDodger,

Check the cap on the coolant bottle.If it is worn out this can be causing the temperature to rise,you will have to replace it.Otherwise,a radiator servicing comprises a complete draining of the system and use of a good coolant.

I don't think that the 1995 model is compatible to the E10 fuel.Check your manual you'll get the confirmation

Good luck

Hey Dodger,

If u want to do a light inspection yourself before goin to the workshops,use this as a check list:

Tha radiator is a 'hangin type' so this would apply a lil pressure on the cooling system components like hoses stretching,radiator outlets/inlets cracking & maybe the odd bump mightve cracked the tanks.Check for any puddles or weeps around that area also check the transmission intercooler for any leaks a well.

Check the reservoir tank as well because its a header tank ,it endures hight temps & maintaining the correct pressures it is bound to crack,& the cracks are sometimes so fine you wont see them till its at operating at a specific temp.

This inspection would be the primary stage as the next stage would be a Cooling system pressure test & thermostat replacement.

Just a note as well,Please be sure you do not mix coolants together as this in some cases I've witnessed chemical reacts & becomes acidic.Bad news for the newer alloy engines..remember even if the coolants the same colour it doesnt mean its compatible.

Good luck
