Coolant drips
« on: Mar 07, 2022, 03:03 AM »

   While checking the throttle body sync on my Mk 2 I noticed that when I blipped the throttle, in closing suddenly it caused a back surge of coolant which sprayed up to the top of the reservoir, some of which went into the overflow pipe. Trickle trickle, she pea'd green.
  The Mk 1 used to do it too, and others on the forum have noticed the same thing. Now I know why  :38: .

Don't take Life too serious, it's not permanent.

yeah, my MK1 used to do it, i watched the overflow tank with the side panel off. the coolant used to do a little upwards jiggle when doing a quick rev, and exactly like you say, a few drips go down the overflow

I read these posts with interest as I didn't know why mine was losing a few drops of coolant

Thanks
