Depending onhow bad it is ,one way of doing it IS USING A LARGE BOTTLE OF WONDER WELD! TAKE THE TERMOSTAT OUT, FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS, LEAVE IT RUNNING FOR AS LONG AS YOU CAN, EVEN DRIVE AROUND GENTLY FOR A WHILE, YOU ONLY HAVE THE COST OF THE BOTTLE TO LOSE IF STILL LOSING WATER : 2YEAR 'S AGO IFITTED AREPLECMENT ENGINE TOOK ME 9WEEKS TO FIND, HAD IT IN AND RUNNING NICELY I STARTED PICK UP TOOLS&EQUPTMENT WHEN I WENT TO A BLOCK FROM UNDER NEATH CAR ISEEN WATER POURING OUT OF AN EXAUST JOINT THAT IHAD NOT YET TIGHTENT, IWAS TRYING TO CONTACT MY SUPPLYER FOR 3 DAYS! WHEN I PUT WONDERWELD IN ,IT LASTED FOR 25000MILES UNTIL THE WATER PUMP WENT, I HAD BEEN DRIVING IT CONSTENTLY AT 75 MILES PER HOUR WITH FROM A 1/2 TO 1 TON OF A LOAD, SO IT IS WORTH DOING IT : ------ I DID NOT RE DO THE JOB AS I HAD GOT AN ENGINE IN PLACE OF THE FIRST ONE , IT CHEAPER TO FIT IT THEN REPAIR THE OTHER ONE , AS IT JUST COST ME TIME TO DO IT : FRED SEND ME A MESSAGE AS HOW YOU GOT ON :
