    Ok will check the locations you have mentioned. The coolant was flushed and the coolant tank was just replaced a week ago. Earlier the coolant tank was almost dark and the coolant was very viscous with some deposits. Its bit better now. I asked if there is any oil leak, the technician said no, he said the coolant is not oily. But will check anyways. My coolant tank has been "dark" for 3-4 years now.

    If there is minor leak in radiator, do you need to replace the entire radiator?? Whats the cost of the radiator?

    Hi,
    Check Page 24 of this thread where my similar problem was discussed and shams had replied with explanation. Do you remember how many litres of coolant was put in the tank when it was changed?. JFI the tank capacity is 7.2 litres approx.

    Regards
    Kiran

    @Maverickxx2006 Its better to replace radiator than repair it. It doesn't cost a lot as far I know(About 3K for 1.4 FIRE). You can repair it for lower cost but then again reliability is always a concern. Before buying please check its cost on 99rpm.

    I just checked on 99RPM site, there are two available

    1) Kale make = Rs 8,810
    2) BEHR make = Rs 3,490

    Which one to select? I have not yet checked which make is the stock radiator.

    @Maverickxx2006 : Were you able to fix the issue? any update?
    found below info on one of the TFI thread.
    Kale Vs BEHR:
    Only difference between the two is that behr system is completely sealed with help of rubber flaps from all four sides so radiator fan can,t suck air from gap between these parts forcing all air to flow through condenser and it makes huge difference when temp is high outside.
    If its kale get it sealed with help of foam from all four sides

    Yesterday I travelled 200 kms in the afternoon. Today morning I noticed the lower grill is wet with droplets (right side) with the dust settled over it. Tried to smell it, but couldn't notice it. I suspect it to be oil mixed with water. Since it had dust, couldn't make out the colour.
    Is this something from the radiator.
    I checked the engine oil level,coolant levels. All were OK. Even there is no leakage seen on any hoses or radiator when peeped thru the lower grill.
    Any indications please.
    I can make it to the FASS only by Saturday which is 200 kms long. Still in warranty till November.

    Saw wetness on one of the two parallel pipes near the horns. These are running horizontal just in front of the horns. Can anyone please tell what these are. Will it be safe to travel 250 kms on this
