:32:

Alright, so Last weekend i drove 900kms to the top of my island, yip all sweet. But after my car was sitting for about 24 hours on a bloody hot day (30 degrees compared to NZs usual 10-20) came back to see my car had lecked all of the overflow bottles water.

Anyway I made the return trip home topping up water every 3 hours, but the problem still exists.

I am really confused at first i thought it was a leck, but Its like water is getting really really hot and is ending up in the overflow bottle and lecking out through there (too much in it)

My question is, what could be causing all this water to end up in the overflow bottle. My temp gauge seams to remain normal.... :32:


BTW Ive had my supra for a while as my DD, never had an issue, but it could be something to do with this insane heat we have been getting?

Maybe rad cap? or even a bad radiator? try the cap first, that would be my best guess.

^ pretty sure it will make the car overheat, and he said his car does not.

The gauge doesn't say it is,(overheating) The water that is over flowing out of the radiator is WARM not boiling or anything...
