    Angry Vectra Spitting out Coolant???

    well not a happy bunny...

    vectra has decided to spit the dummy out along with a power of coolant!!
    topped up with coolant and everything seems ok engine wise, suspect hose, rad or maybe a leaky pump. will know for sure when its on the ramp at G.I motorsport tomorrow morn. will take me forever to get there as i will be topping constant to top up the coolant! normally takes 10-15min.

    is there a common fault in this area so i have a better idea whats ****ed?

    Is there coolent under the car when it's been sitting?
    Due possible split hose, damaged expansion bottle (it may have cracked in this weather), cracked radiator. Cylinder head leak.

    Is there white smoke coming out of the exhaust?
    Gasket/head may have gone allowing coolant to enter the combustion chamber.

    Radiator? Also the EGR is cooled by a cooler which sits along side the engine under the throttle body - whether it is water cooled I'm not sure. If so maybe this has cracked.

    A radiator I wouldn't know but my guess is about £100 but like I say that could be out.

    well took it to my mates the other day.
    5min and it turned out to be a wee tiny coolant hose hidden under a big coolant hose.
    cut me a new bit of hose and job done, didnt take a penny.
