    Default dumb coolant question!

    my v6 seems to have developed the mystery of the vanishing coolant. Its under a third party warranty so should be able to take it in at some point but not sure when. My problem is i need to top up the coolant now really! Do just top it up with water the whole time? I'm guessing it needs to be mixed with some form of anti freeze but don't want to go getting it wrong and voiding my warranty!

    Depends how much you've lost,i lost some out of mine when i first got it,and just topped it up with water,if you have to put more than 500ml then i'd start adding anti-freeze.........

    Haven't added any since then,strange.........

    Are there any leaks? Is there any white 'crystialised' dust around the pipes feeding into the radiator?

    If there's no leaks get her in for a pressure check.
