    Default Honda civic 2005 reducing coolant

    Asalam O Elaikum,

    I am sorry if this topic has been posted before, but I could not find a thread specifically catering to my problem.

    I had shifted my car on zic super A coolant in January. the previous owner was using water. There was minor reduction in coolant level in the month of January and February. But now in the summers of March and April, I am witnessing increased drop in the coolant level. My car usually covers 150 kms per week. and each week I have to top up the reserve bottle. Every week the level drops till the minimum level and I have to top it up till the maximum Level. There is no leakage witnessed to the eye. Please help me in this regard.

    The car is honda civic 2005 eagle eye manual transmission

    Xulfiqar bhai doing the citric acid cleaning and getting the radiator service from radiator wala is the same thing or different ? which one is better ? i believe radiator service wala does not cleans the rust inside the engine while it can be cleaned with citric acid solution ?

    citric acid is better than the radiator vendors who pour in sulphuric acid.

    Radiator has leaks, because when radiator level lowers it sucks from reservoir bottle.

    Then I am not refilling the reserve bottle. Want to check if the coolant level reduces in the radiator or not. right now, the reserve bottle is empty but the radiator is full

    That's obvious bro, now if there is no coolant in reserve bottle gradually coolant level will decrease in radiator too.
