    Default Radiator water is drying up

    Guys Please help me regarding situation with my Mehran VX 2011.

    Background
    It has CNG and AC but both non ff. It started having issues with radiator and got it checked. It was worn off so I changed it in 6k (new). I am not sure if it was Malaysian or what. After 6, 7 months car started heating up again and I got it checked. The metallic pipe was leaking. Got it replaced and radiator got serviced.
    Present:
    The water is drying up in radiator and the water bottle is still full. For a long journey like 150km I have to refill it (around 200ml). The AC gas has leaked and I am using car without AC. The radiator fan is on direct setting. The mechanic suggested that head gas kit needs to be looked and may be head gas need to be changed. I am a bit apprehensive getting it done from local mechanic and thinking to get it done from Suzuki 3S.
    Besides sucking water, the car is awesome and giving me 20km mileage on long route and around 14 in the city. Now days I am using CNG in the city and full tank gives me around 150km. (Rs 450).
    Please guide me about the issue and recommend a good AC service in Lahore.

    Default Radiator water is drying up

    Good Answer
    Check radiator flow.
    Open cap start a car then give race from engine side and see radiator water is it flowing properly?

    Is fan working? Add relay in fan.

    Drive your car for only 10 min and Check all water pipe.

    Sucking problem occurs when any leakage in pipe or problem in flow.

    Solution
    Took an advice from an acquaintance who works as service manager in Suzuki dealership and service. He asked me to got it checked in dealership and they changed other pipes in radiator which costed around 900 and then asked me to check it after every 2-3 days. It worked so the problem was leakage.

    Got AC serviced and gas refilled which costed me 3000 but as working really well. I mean for the front seat it does the job
