Customer Question
Hi, it is just...

Hi, it is just question. With how much pressure in the radiator I can test my holden rodeo 2.6? that vehicle is dual fuel.

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?

Start in petrol, than I press acceleration pedal and it is changed on gas. I can see that on sign CHECK ENGINE. only trough this I follow if work on petrol or gas.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Holden?

1997, holden rodeo 2.6 lit.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

I am loosing liquid from radiator, and like to see where I am loosing liquid.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Also, the radiator cap should be 0.9, 1.1 or 1,3?
