The workshop team have been working on getting to the bottom of the small radiator leak on the 1985 Jaguar Sovereign V12.

After pressurising the coolant system, the team inspected everywhere in the system for the leak. After looking through each hose and fitting, the team noticed a weep coming from the lower radiator tap. From this, the team ordered up a new replacement.

Once this had arrived, the team got to work refitting the new piece and topping up all fluids before repressuring the system and checking for any leaks. The new tap had done the trick and the system stayed full and under pressure while the team carried on with their inspection which that small leak was the only issue found on the car.
