radiator leaks.. + missing part
I recently bought a 1988 318i from my parents (going to be the project car in the fullness of time), its in reasonably good nick with no rust. Recently I have been having to top of the radiator with extra water about every 2 weeks or so. I can't notice anything dripping under the car when its parked.
According to the vehical testing place (our cars have to meet pretty strick restrictions here in NZ) there is no holes in the radiator or it wouldn't have got its warrant of fitness.
Where could it be losing this water from? Could it be leaking as steam through the cap?
One more thing, there appears to be a part missing under the bonnet, I will post a photo on here tommorow. Or does anyone have a photo of thier stock '88 318i under the bonnet? It may be the cause of what causes it to stall a lot from a cold start.
Appreciate the help!
