Hi all,

My MCS seems to be using a fair bit of water, i need to top it up once a week, the temp gauge stays at half way normal running temp, the expansion bottle is all tarnished where you can see it has got warm , it looks like that the water may have run down the front of the bottle and caused this staining, also the pipe that feeds from the expansion bottle to the main cooling circuit has water stains on it. This was touching the heat shield above the manifold so i have persuaded that out of the way!! Anyone else had any experience of this? I have cleaned the expansion bottle and the pipe to see if it re appears, if not i guess the next stage is to pressure check the cooling system to see if it is one of the hoses that is perished.

Mike
