    Default Santro issues urgent help

    hey guys
    There are two issues actually
    first one:
    well i have started experiencing this new problem. My car seems to heat up but just a bit! im not regular on checking water and coolant but after this issue i started doing it and i noticed that the coolant bottle was empty so i added water in it. Now my question is if this was the right thing to do. I mean was i supposed to add ONLY coolant in it cause what happens now is that the water finishes up after about two days or like 100 kms. So is there something wrong with my car? i checked other posts and im really worried that there might be some gas kit issues though the car runs fine and that there is so no leakage i got the leakage checked from hyundai service area.

    second one:
    i recently got my car tuned spark plugs, air filter tappets etc
    but when the hyundai mechanic came to set up cng he did it pretty well but when ever he tried turning on the air con it started vibrating and didnt turn on. Santro owners know that the AC trips when the car is accelerated so it kept tripping and turning on with that weird tik tik noise. The mechanic said it was a CNG kit issue though i got it serviced like month ago. He also pointed that it could be a sensor issue.
    Does anybody else experience this?

    for your first problem i think you need a new radiator cap..a nice one, not chines..

    and for your second problem: your car just need a cng tune-up by some professional...
    he will just adjust the idle valve on the CNG kit and this problem will be solved..its a 5min job..infact i adjusted my Chevy joy's idle valve at home in 5mins

    1. Radiator needs cleaning.
    2. Throttle body also needs cleaning,especially IAC Valve.

    Same problem of coolant bottle got empty in 2 days. Car is civic 2000.
    As my mechanic says its the problem of radiator cap. So I changed it, but the problem is still there.
    Radiator cap costed me Rs 250. One was of Rs 100 and the other was of 250. Can anybody tell me is it original? or whats the price of original one, just to get an idea.

    pressure check the cooling system and clean it out too, if you have been driving with tap water in it - you are pretty much effed in the rusting/corrosion situation.
