1999 1.8 - Coolant colour in expansion tank - Pezzer
After a bit of advice please. I've just looked at a 1999 1.8 Zafira for Mrs P. Its all very tidy but the fluid in the expansion tank was very dark/black in colour . There didnt seem to be any white gooh there or in the Oil filler cap etc, but could this be an indication of HGF problems ?

Many thanks

Unless the coolant has been changed sometime in its life, it should be a light pink colour.

Maybe somebody has changed the coolant at some point in time ( pink stuff is 5 year lifetime IIRC) and put old skool blue stuff in, or maybe its more Radweld than coolant. Does sound a bit iffy either way.
