Fiat 500 with cooling system leaks.


This Fiat 500 came into us for a service and during our inspection it soon became apparent it had issues with its cooling system, the coolant header tank was completely empty and there were signs of a leak coming from the front of the car.

As the cooling system keeps the engine cool when the vehicle is running it was imperative that it works correctly, we pressure tested the Fiat 500’s cooling system and it didn’t have just one leak it had two!

We quickly diagnosed the Fiat 500 radiator and thermostat housing we’re both leaking coolant, we contacted the customer with an estimate to complete the work to which they agreed.

To remove the Fiat 500 radiator you have to remove the front bumper and the crash bar which were both successfully removed without any issues and the new radiator was installed. We also replaced the leaking thermostat housing with a brand new updated part (Fiat know about this common fault) so the fault will not happen again.

We completed the repairs to the cooling system and finished the service leaving our customer happy knowing her Fiat 500 was back in tiptop condition.
