Hey guys, well I know I posted about my heaters blowing cold n stuff, but tonight while I was driving (Normally) I noticed the needle started creeping up slowly from half way upto the 3 quarter mark on the gauge! Is this bad?
Thats the furthest point it went when I had just pulled onto my drive. So heres the story....
I bought the car a couple of weeks ago and it has always flashed up "Check Coolant Level" even though there has been sufficient coolant in the rad. The other day I also noticed it had now stopped blowing hot air with the heaters on full, also it's losing approx half of the expansion tanks worth of coolant about every 150ish miles, although there is no signs of coolant around the engine or on the floor etc.
Tonight driving to Cannock about 12 miles from me as I was nearly at my destination I noticed the temp gauge was very slowly creeping upto the 3 quarter mark, but never fully reached it. Left the car off for about 2 hours and then afterwards drove home.
On the way home it crept up, slowly again to as far as the picture shown.
Theres no water in the oil and no oil in the water, it doesnt seem to white smoke at all either? Has anybody else experienced something similar and if so did you manage to resolve it? My worst thought is possibly headgasket? But like I say there is no contaminated fluids. So I also thought if it could possibly be a f*cked thermostat or water pump?
Any advice would really be appreciated peeps, thankyou
