losing water

I'm losing water from my Punto. I'll fill up the topup tank in the morning, drive 20 miles to work then when I check the water levels (at 5 o'clock)theres a little dribble left in the tank. I've just had the head gasket fixed (about 4 months ago). No oil and water mixing. Under the car is dry, so it's not losing water when stationary.

Took car into garage about 3 weeks ago, they told me it was an 'air lock', fixed it and everything was ok for about a fortnight.

Where is the water going? I'm topping it up every day!

Re: losing water

Sounds to me like the water pump, had the exact same thing happen to my my old mk1 sporting, stationary it was fine and no water coming from anywhere but found after a shortish daily trip that most had dissaperared! And in the end found it was the water pump leaking and would only leak whilst car is bein driven. Change it and ull find your car will be all gravy again

Re: losing water

I've had a similar experience with a radiator never seemed to leak when stopped but water disappeared on the move found the leak almost by accident cured ,for the time being, by bottle of 'K' seal. The leak was the join between the plastic part & the metal body of the rad.
