Any help appreciated
I have a 97 T-bar, and it started overheating recently.. checked the rad and was empty.. refilled it and it disappeared.. NO sign of leaks at all.. my mechanic did a pressure test on the rad and it was sound.. we filled it with water again and it disappeared again..
I know you are probably thinking head gasket straight away.. But I am hoping it is not..
The header tank/overflow tank is bubbling when hot.. so I read somewhere that this could be due to a bad rad cap. it said a bad rad cap can cause boiling and expansion of coolant/water
So I am going to replace this and hope for the best.. but if this doesn't work does anyone else have any ideas?? apart from it been the Head gasket?
The mechanic reckons the HG is prob leaking/cracked and the water/coolant is going out the exhaust..
PS. would I need an original rad cap.. or will one from the motor store do?
