Hi, i have just joined this forum and need some advice. My 54 plate Ford Focus Zetec has started to use alot of water ( filling it up every 2 days) , and the fan is kicking in when car is stationary ( this lasts for 2-3 mins) the car is NOT boiling and running at normal temp. I have checked head gasket and no water mixing. Any ideas?

Moved it to General Tech Chat for you.

Sounds like it's seeping out somewhere, could be a search to find the location. Common ones for some are at the thermostat housing & at a transverse water pipe at the top of the radiator, don't know your engine model & if it has those particular problems.

Finding crusty residue at joints is an indication of intermittent leakage.
