Twice now, I have gotten to my boat
to notice that the coolant
in the reservoir is severely depleted. This has happened twice over the last 2 months. I have topped it off and checked the levels between instances, but have not seen any drop in fluid.....
What could be causing this?
I have not seen any coolant
in the bilge
, or any obvious leaking. I did change the heat exchanger
zinc the other day, but that should be on the salt water
side of the system. There has not seemed to be any drops after the last couple of times I went out in the boat
I have heard some rattling in the front of the engine
, which could be the water pump
, but not sure about that....again, no obvious signs of leaks
I am going to do an oil change
and see if the oil
looks normal or has anything obvious in it.
My very uneducated guesses as to where it could be going is
due to maybe a leak in the heat exchanger
b) into the oil
pan due to an internal leak
c) into the bilge
and I am just not seeing it
d) into the hot water
tank due to a leak in its heat exchanger
Any other potential places, and how do I test the above?
Or am I missing something obvious (always a possibility)?
