Coolant Leak

I am losing coolant from my car quite rapidly... first time I noticed a problem and topped it up it lasted about a month, now I'm needing to fill up about once a week.

Anyone ever used Radweld? Got some at home which I bought ages ago and wondering whether to just chuck it in and hope for the best? Alternatively could take it in and get it properly diagnosed.

Anyone offer any advice from experience?

It is a Dub, my friend...

I'm on a chain though so timing belt shouldn't be a problem ?

Yeah they all seem to come with the Sat Nav dashboard screen these days, but not necessarily with Sat Nav available to use.

I much prefer having the Nav on the car, but it's often crap, nowhere near as good as a tomtom or google maps. Sooner cars integrate with google maps the better.

Mercs use Gamin. You can actually download these yourself from the internet and add it to an SD card...

I was about 19, I just wouldn't put private again tbh.

Tend to stick to cars with a warranty since I know diddly squat about cars. It gets me from where I am to where I need to be, I can fit my family in it and it's comfortable.

Can't stand the idiots who lease or PCP cars they will never be able to afford. So dumb. When that bubble bursts though there will lots of lovely cars on the market for good prices.

Isnt financing a nice car just the same as mortgaging a house?
As long as you can afford the payments and fuel and repairs etc etc whats the bother?
