Renault 19 - Overheating
Received the dreaded call today from my Mrs B to say that there was smoke pouring out of the engine. She also advised that she had parked up at Asda.
Anyway after a mad rush to re-arrange the day I get out to her to discover that the "smoke" is infact Steam coming from the over - heating engine.
Now the question is what can cause the engine to over heat, I would like some different thoughts to my own so that I may try and elimanate the possible cause as I go along. One more thing, wkere would I find the water pump on this car as I can only see the alternator and the power steering pump....???
Needless to say she was quite happy to take my car with the kids and go home and leave me to wait for the breakdown guy to arrive.......
