Insatiable appetite for coolant?
« on: March 08, 2011, 06:45:32 pm »
Hi all
My GPA used about 1litre of Paraflu up (unmixed, or 2litre mixed) in under a year. I find this a bit exessive. I never had this issue with any other cars. I can detect no leaks or puddles under the car. Any ideas? Its going for its first service soon so I need to suss out the problem, if I can, before I go.

Many thanks

    Funny you should mention that.  I don't check mine often enough (and should do), but when fitting my TMC at the weekend I had to top up the coolant.  It had lost about 300ml in a year.  No signs of leakage anywhere.  I just topped with water as I has no Paraflu.
