    Default cultus reducing water

    dear friends, i have a cultus 2007 efi model 84k on odo. the problem is that my car is reducing water from the reservoir bottle.
    when i drive it like 5-10 kms and park it then after some time the water level in reservoir bottle is reduced like a cup or two. The car is not overheating, also there is no violent throwing of water from radiator so no head gaskit issue also tried to find a leak but found none. i haven't visited a mechanic yet.

    plz help???

    Bro there is some minor leak from the hose pipe joints of your radiator pipes..look for tell tale signs of rust around these joints.

    And one more thing. After you drive and the car gets hot and then you park it and it cools down. Does it do missing for a little while when you start it up again...?

    no missing nothing......... but a month ago one of hose pipe got leaked and radiator was half empty but the car didn't heat up. after that its reducing water from the bottle. even on motorway from peshawar to islamabad and back the car didnt heat up and only 3-4 cup of water was reduced when it cooled down....

    could it be air in system???

    May be...but there is a minor leak somewhere..may be in water body or in the heater pipes..may be one of the rubber pipes is minutely cracked.

    Get your radiator serviced first If I remember the guys at Suzuki charge around 500 for radiator service and roadside ustad cost you 300. When you park your car for overnight check the pipes next day for any leakage.
