    Default 1.9disel vectra loosing coolant and temp, suggestuions please.

    hi there

    2004 vectra diesel 8v suddenly starting loosing coolant.

    happens after 30-40 minutes driving, and the temp guage looses temperature as well.

    its only dropping about an inch or less, and doesnt do it on short journeys.

    any ideas please,, im thinking a pressure test first?

    or is it small leak on radiator, as radiator heats up, hole opens, thoughts please.

    regards

    martin

    I am going to say Thermostat. Reason, mine done this, temp guage sits on cold, when it started to do this the coolent warning light had came. Logically it makes no sense as it is a sealed system.

    Coolant level dropped but only once though. Topped up; never done it again. Like I say there is no logical reason why it would do it.
