    Default Heater water leakage (alto vxr)

    Dear all, i own ALTO VXR CNG 2011, i purchased it zero meter and one hand driven in pindi city only, car has developed problem as water has started leaking from the heater radiator and dripping inside the car on the floor of seat next to driver. Previously i topped up the level of radiator with some coolant forgetting the name, i think same lead to the leakage, may be coolant was of low quality. Now pakwheel brothers are requested to kindly answer my following questions.
    1. Which coolant to be used.
    2. Ratio of coolant and water in the radiator as total quantity which comes in the alto radiator is almost 4 Lits.
    3. Price of new heater radiator?
    4. Can old heater radiator be repaired?
    5. Dashboard has to be removed for changing/replacing of heater radiator?
    6. Labour charges which will be asked for the work?
    7. Anyone from pindi who knows good mechanic who can do the job?
    8. From which shop heater radiator can be purchased?
    looking forward to all pakwheelers for their valuable comments.

    Regards...

    AOA,

    This is ALTO's inheritant problem, the heater coil is made of weak aluminium tube which is unable to take pressure of hot water and leaks. No matter which coolant you use the heater coil will leak when ever your car over heats especially in summer with CNG.

    The permanent solution is to get the heater coil made of copper tube, a good radiator shop will doit for you.

    dear all , i changed the heater radiator (heater core) today from a mechanic in pindi, following are the details...

    1. Heater core price....... Rs. 1300/= its 2nd hand purchased from madina market i saddar rawalpindi.
    2. Complete dashboard of alto vxr has to be removed. Got it done from a good ac mechanic from adiala rawalpindi who charged rs. 1000/=. It took 1 hour to dismantle the dashboard and it took just 1 minute to remove the heater core from where it was fitted, thnkx to suzuki motors who fitted it tht way... And again it took 2 hours to fix the complete dashboard again in its place...see the pictures im uploading.
    3. Purchased dk coolant for 4 lits of refilling and will fill it after 2 days, mean time checking if there is any leakage or not.

    Shared it for betterment of everyone....
