Wierd? After oil & filter change I no longer leak water?

Post by Lewy » 10 Apr 2013, 22:47

Whilst I never found out where I was losing water, since the service I haven't lost any and also my heater actually heats up in an acceptable time frame now?

Very strange - gus247 mentioned something about the aircon at the weekend but I think we got side tracked and I never got round to asking exactly what it was.

Any thoughts peeps? :think: :think: :think:

No logical link between the two so maybe just a coincidence. Keep an eye on it.

I wonder if you jacking the car up displaced an airlock which has vented itself?..............

Theoretically possible, unlikely, but can't think of another explanation!

Keep a track of it mate as there is no way it would stop from just changing oil and filter.
