    Quick question please, my A3 is moaning at me about it not having enough coolant, checked the thingy under the bonnet and it's literally just under minimum.

    Okay to drive as normal for a week or two?

    Well I have coolant in the house which I'm going to in 2 or 3 weeks time... so I couldn't be bothered to go buy some if it's not needed.

    Jusu top it to the max with water out of the tap, no need to use inhibitor when topping up such a small amount ;)

    Nige, Navajo is the forum "joker" (remove the "r" for his real title) on the Corsa forum

    Just ignore him, he's Welsh, bored and wants some attention

    Jon, just fill it up you div

    let it run out .........and then you'll know if it was worth spending around £8 on a top up.....or worth waiting till you got home!

    He clearly can't be very bright if he was on a Corsa forum with a Golf! :p

    Perhaps just pee into the coolant, since it's warm it'll work as anti-freeze as regular water will get cold and freeze over.

    Fill it up then if you still get problems change the coolant tank, the sensors are known to play up especially in cold weather. They become corroded.

    £13 from main dealer and don't even need to do a coolant change if you are careful.

    haha...I'll let you take the brunt of that statement. I'm sure there are many users here who used to have corsa's...myself included. Mine was a 1L purple beauty! As standard as the day she was made, in performance, looks and satisfaction. Great first car, but loved getting rid of it.

    I'm sure I'll be fine, they probably can't find the reply button.
    Haha, I can hardly talk, I owned a vauxhall nova once. It had an SR spoiler and hub caps on it and stick on sunscreens as tints.
