Customer Question

My radiator cap was not put on properly, so the gauge didnt show overheating, the motor ticked heaps & I took pedal off, it then stalled. I looked under hood seen the prob, waited a couple of hours & filled it up with coolant & water, tried starting it as there was no oil in the water or other way around, it keeped kicking until battery went flat, waited another 5 hrs & tried with a good battery & nothing, we then towed around corner, left for days checked oil & water & all good but battery flattened again, it's not the heads as there would be water in it?
