Which one be water signal again. Can u take a photo of the device or the car abeg. What's the name of the car. Do you really have a car or did u just make up this story.

I only know of Engine Temperature gauge. Radiator doesn't have a gasket the top cylinder of the engine does. If the top cylinder is bad you can replace it without necessarily replacing the whole engine.

Reminds me of someone who said his car is Toyota Xtrail Limited and is 4wheel drive. Another argued that all SUVs that are manual transmission are 4wheel drive while the ones that are automatic are front wheel Drive. Of course they both have powerful SUV and talking from experience.

Nairalanders sha.

Baba this ur analysis show say u never own or drive car before oo. I'm talking about what I experienced recently so other lazy people like me can be more careful and u started writing stories. So if gasket burn, u don't know every single water in ur radiator will end up missing with ur engine oil ?. By the way I drive a Mercedes Benz ML 430

people like u should not own a car, you are careless. How can u ignore warning lights?
I feel like punching u right now.

I only felt I should be able to get to my office in ikeja before I check the water, however the water usually last more than a month before I top water again, and this one was just less than a week, that's why I felt should still be able to get to the office. I don't know-how I manage to leave the radiator uncovered. It was so unfortunate sha.

most coolant in the market is nothing but water mixed with color, you buy color thinking its coolant and end up damaging ur car.

Any better coolant to advise on? I use the one in blue plastic with green content

Good lessons here, did a terrible mistake few weeks ago, didn't know my radiator cover wasn't in place the last time I put water in the radiator, it was sitting on top of the engine while the radiator remain uncovered, the water signal on the dashboard was showing low water level, I neglected it thinking I still put water recently, I drove it like that from ajah to ikeja and got the gasket burnt, they change gasket it didn't still work, water keeps entering the engine, I had to replace a complete engine. I have spent over 200k, the car is still with the mechanic as am typing this. If I had just opened the bonnet and checked, I would have saved my self all this wahala. Let's be observant of our cars pls.

Sorry bro, my car had overheating problem three times but I got to know before it cause any damage. The First and second happened when my temp gauge wasn't working still, I sense the overheating on time. Despite the fact that I was a learner and it is my first ride grin.
Sorry once again.

You're right, grooming is essential. Auto instructors remind that gradually the radiator becomes clogged with various debris, dirt and dust that enter the engine cooling system. In fact, sooner or later there is a need for replacement. I found a good website for a manufacturer from China - https://www.chinatongchi.com/toch-wholesale-radiator-fan-suppliers-good-oem-1.html where you can find everything you need
