Coolant lose

Recommended Posts

guys my 07 runs excellant but have noticed that the coolant level is low after a long ride in dez. When I stop I can smell coolant but see no evidence of a leak. Check the coolant and it's low. Pulled the skid plate and it appears the weep hole has a grayish stain around it. I flushed the coolant and noticed fine black particles amongst the coolant that I flush out, I then strained out the coolant thru a paper cone strainer to capture the particles. Examining the debris it appears and feels like rubber! What do you guys think, WATER PUMP SEAL. Give me your feedback and advice. Thanks

My friend had an issue with his after he put in the incorrect antifreeze, ended up eating the aluminum and clogging the hell out of his water pump. I would tear it all down and inspect it all.

Plus if you ride in the des i would upgrade to a 1.8 ish water cap, will prevent blow by.
