1990 Daihatsu Applause LX 1.6


I have a problem with cooling liquid coming inside the car under the feet of driver and front passenger. I presume that there must be a leak in the heater-block, as the cooling water level has to be checked every day.

Has someone got a clue how to get to that heater block just to control it, and almost certainly dismantle it for replacement?

I used a liquid to stop leaks in the cooling system, it helped mostly, but not completely, so I have to go on repairing. I don't want the engine to overheat in order to prevent more damage.

Regards, Patrick.

General Comments:

For the rest, it's a good car with (for its time) a lot off modern equipment. It's in fact affiliated with Toyota.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
