    Help! Coolant Leak

    Changed my thermostat and temperature sender tonight, seemed to go ok, went for a quick drive and the check coolant warning came on. Found this constant drip, any ideas what I've done wrong?

    afraid you need to take it off and refit, maybe theres some grit or your missing a rubber seal not done it myself but just common sense mate.... when i done my downpipe i nearly forgot the gasket!-)

    The seal is dislodged or pinched. Remove it, dry the seal, put some grease on it and it'll stick to the stat allowing you to do it up without it moving around.
