Busy weekend just gone with ups and downs, had a mate do all the belts, tensioner, full service, new water pump. Once it was all done bled the coolant system and it ran fine, then we noticed it was dripping coolant.
By this time it was late so I decided to call it a night and went home, next day went out to find the expansion bottle empty and a damp patch under car. Thought it was either water pump was leaking or the pipe from it wasn't on tight, so whilst I was at work not working I stripped the front off to investigate.
Had a new jubilee clip put on and took pump off to make sure it still had the seals on it which it did, so topped up with fluid and ran the engine, still dripping arghh. Only other possibility was it was leaking through the water pump side and dripping down, so the seal or bearing is worn and its letting fluid past it. So threw it all back together and got some rad weld which has stopped the leak but every now and then the pas pump makes some noises so i got a new pump but as yet I cba to strip the car again. Any way I didnt get pics of the intercooler when I got it fitted so took some snaps oh loving the remapped car even more haha.
Oh I got soms brand new Apex diesel lowering springs to replace the petrol shocks and lowering springs, Much better.
Still more work as always shall update when more happens.
