Re: 1.6 coolant loss

So an update on this, for a couple of days after the incident even the shortest trip (15 mins) would empty the reservoir, but it wasn't losing anything sat still. Then, as if nothing had happened, it's gone back to just losing a few ml per day. I've bought a new reservoir (in case it's cracked somewhere, as it only ever seemed to be losing what was in there), new cap (just in case), thermostat and timing kit including pump so we'll have a good poke around and see if there are any split pipes too when doing all of that lot.

Well done mate better safe than sorry. Throw up pictures if you can to help anyone else out with issue.
