Toying with the idea of selling my GTC

Although I had seen the inside of the radiator cap many times while re-filling the expansion bottle it looked fine, both seals in place and in good condition. The only leak I could see was ...

Looking forwards to draught free motoring - once I get the water issue sorted. the chassis is in gr...

Re: Winter daily driver

The thermostat housing cap not sealing correctly - due to the cap missing or damaged top seal - or the bottom seal not sealing correctly. The top seal is the more likely. Or you have a water leak somewhere which is ...
