    Default Using Radweld question

    Anyone know the coolant capacity of the 1.9 8v diesel?
    I've got a suspected radiator leak, and I'm going to try radweld in the first instance. The bottle (250ml - larger of the 2 sold by halfords) says it treats upto 14l but desn't give a dosing amount for capacities less than that... do i just put the whole lot in? half?

    Thanks in advance.

    Don't bother with any temporary repairs, get the car to a mechanic, confirm the radiator has failed, and if so get a new one ordered and fitted as soon as
    Stop using the vehicle until that replacement arrives
    Ask the garage to perform a complete coolant system flush, then refill with new 50:50 coolant

    agree with m8, its just not worth the both to do temp repair I did it years ago on my old 306 and wish i'd just take it round to the garage straight away...plus I found radweld to be tosh!
