citroen c6 hdi 2.7 coolant leak

Post by ststech » 29 Aug 2014, 22:41

i have just bought a 2008 c6 2.7 hdi
it has suddenly developed a bad coolant leak coming from underneath the rats maze on top of the block in center
as fast as you put coolant in it pours out i think and recall seeing a post about a water manifold damaged in this area
can anyone shed any light on the subject

thanks Simon

Hi Simon,
You may want to ask the same question on the http://www.C6owners.org" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; forum.
There are some very knowledgeable people there.
I have heard of the plastic thermostat housing failing & I think it's located high up, on the side of the engine block.
Best of luck fixing it.
