    Trim : Sport

    Engine : 3.0 CDTI

    Year : 12/03

    Default Just waiting for the final bang!

    Here we go...


    My beloved Signum 3.0V6CDTi, also know as Schei▀wagen, is having problems with coolant.
    April 9 - I marked the coolant level when the engine was warmed up to 85-90░C

    Today I popped up the bonnet and I noticed that it had dropped for about 5mm. I started to panic, but drove off anyway. After what could be 10miles of motorway driving at 60mph and 1mile to get home, I popped up the bonnet again. And joy of joys...coolant level was 2cm OVER the mark I made 3 days ago...


    This car is a complete piece ****. Worst engine ever. GM should've never bought it from Isuzu...

    Sounds like you might have an air lock. Find the highest coolent hose and vent the air from it there, and see what happens after that.
