Steam Up

Mileage: 186,021KM

Duh… temperature risen on the way back from the garage. 30 minutes driving in and out of traffic jam with needle at 100 degree most of the time. Once reach my home, popped up the hood and here is what I found…

Since it was couple of days before Eid al-Fitr holiday, thus I just resorted to patch it up with epoxy and make  a proper repair once the holidays over. I just use my trusted brand of epoxy glue Araldite; a 5-minute adhesive. Bear in mind, this is just a temporary solution and not a fixed or workaround.

Prep the area before the patch up

Due to the earth gravity issue, I had to remove the radiator from the car to do a proper patching. Left it for full 48 hours for the bonding magic. The patch tips above is just for my temporary solution to be able to go to the garage for proper fixing. It may and may not cure the issue but at least it can stand for 30 KM is good for me already.
