Your temp gauge never gets past half way? That's good. Why do you think your overheating?
Ok. When in motion, does the gauge tend to go higher? When in motion, although your engine is working harder, you have the air blowing through the radiator to offset that.
So, 3 times this past month you have had to add coolant?
I would suggest a cooling system pressure test if this is the case. I always fill the cooling systems using a vacuum filler. It's by far the best method to do it. Which is what your airlift system is. I stopped using it to check for leaks though because it wasn't discovering the leaks like a pressure tester does.
I know it's hard being hunched over an engine for that long. I do them on the lift now a couple feet in the air. Lower back isn't what it used to be. If it gets low, you can still add water, or antifreeze would be better. Let me know how it goes. I'll be around. Thanks!
Did you end up finding the leak?
Hi Roger. Thanks for the follow up. I can't complain about the weather. It's been very mild. Glad you were able to find the source of the coolant loss. Hopefully it's the only one. Let me know if you need any further assistance. I'm here to assist. Merry Christmas!
