Going to clean and flush out the cooling system this weekend and local Dealer has given me the choice of the typical Etheyne Glycol or the strange Red pre-mixed coolant.
However they cannot tell me what the Japs would have put in there.
Any ideas Question

Result Exclamation The pre-mixed red solution has done the trick as gauge has come down a tad. Might have had something to do with the coolant and the %$"ed pressure cap as well.
Just to prove it's worth shopping around, Ebay caps were approx 9.00 more expensive that the main dealer, in some cases more if you included the postage.
Morale of the story......... shop around a bit more Smile
