MK2F Coolant Leak?

Recommended Posts

DPickett

Hi all I have a 1994 MK2F 1.3 Genesis and have noticed this little leak from the engine - what are people’s thoughts on what the cause is?

 

I think it may be the thermostat housing?

 

coolant level and temperature are all fine so no overheating issue.

Cheers, I’ll have a look at a couple sensor seals. 

 

Seems to be running all okay so will leave the stat as you say.
