Loosing water regularly could mean that you have got a leak. Common areas for water loss might be from a radiator or its associated coolant hoses, the water pump or thermostat including its housing, or even the coolant temperature sensor or the heating system.

Vehicles have a heater matrix attached to the coolant system and use the warm water produced from the engine to heat the inside of the car. This matrix is a just like a mini radiator but instead of using air to cool the coolant down the air that is passing through it warms up the inside of the vehicle.

The radiator or expansion tank cap, thermostat and water pump all help with coolant flow.

Bring your car to Pentagon Motorist Centre in Medway if you feel that your vehicle has circulation problems, we are situated in the centre of Chatham.
