Hello Friends, I am suspecting a coolant leak on My Hyundai I10, Reveved here- My "Blue Boy" Hyundai i10 Magna Detailed Review
Today morning when the car was Getting washed, I saw a small puddle of Green coolant on the floor. My Natural Reaction was to pop the hood and Check any obivious leaks. However I found nothing by visual inspection. I need your help on this guys! Here are some bold points about the case-
1> Driver was washing the car with water when I saw the puddle. However only the external car was washed, Hood closed. I never wash car engine bays.
2> The car was serviced last month only and coolant was also changed. The details are in the Link above.
3> Found no leaks by visuals
4> The coolant level in Resiorvior tank was less. I added about 700ML of coolant to this tank. However, The coolant level in Radiator was way too full. Infact when I slowly opened the radiator cap, Small quality escaped from above.
5> The Car was NOT used in morning. I had merely reversed for cleaning.
6> The upper radiator hose was very hot , while the one that goes to bottom of Radiator was Room temperature. Does that mean coolant is not circulating?
7> Engine temperature after 10 Mins of Idling was about 20% on Gague. Which is normal to me. Its not overheating or anything.
8> Driver suggested that coolant spills could have happened during service, which then stuck to car underbody. The wash merely brought stuck coolant down. Seems logical however Engine bay is not washed.
9> For now I asked Driver to clean engine bay entirely and make dry of Coolant, so i can check more leaks.
Chime in Folks!
