    Default Coolant Leak - Aussie Holden Vectra C z22se 2.2l Hatch

    Hi, I have a 2003 Holden Vectra C z22se 2.2l Hatch - leaking coolant from the engine (between the firewall and engine) - I have done some reading on Aussie Opel forums and on Vectra B models at least, it would seem to be the heater tap valve - I have rung a (gulp) Holden dealer and Motor Traders here in Adelaide and they were both unable to find a heater tap valve part reference for this engine/model.

    My question is - does this model/engine have a heater tap valve, if so, is it the likely cause of the leak in your measured opinions? I am losing approx 1.5l of fluid each time I run the car for more than 30mins (on a 30 degree + day).

    The picture below is of the heater tap valve for a different 4 cylinder Vectra motor (Holden Vectra - JR JS - 6/1997-1998-1999-2000-2001-2002 - Engines - 2.0L, 2.2L, 2.5L, 2.6L - C20SE, C20SEL, X25E, Y26E)

    I am pretty sure the 2.2 direct has one of these on the bottom LHS of the RAD, reason i know is i used it to drain the fluid out and also advised by Sean 2.2direct when i cleaned the EGR

    ( If its the same item )
