Default Alto losing water

Hi bought a 2005 alto a week ago to use as a work car, when I first got it the coolant level was low so topped it up and checked again today after 200 miles it's gone down again. Can't see any leaks so hoping it's not the head gasket but cars only done 34000 on the clock so surely this is unlikely? Read the coolant cap might be broken, but has no part number on so don't want to buy wrong part.

Any ideas about anything?

Hi i have a 2013 alto and this year it started to lose coolant, i couldnt find the leakage source unitl it was too big, it started to lose all coolant trought the heater core in the drivers side inside the car, the solution was to bypass the heater core, check your cars floor to see any humidity signs, i hope it helps!!

Default losing water

My suzuki also lost water, I replaced the heater matrix, still lost water, check ALL rubber hoses they lose integrety with age also common fault heater gauge doesnt work!!! Also replace spring clips with Worm or Jubilee clips better still Barrel clips as hoses tend to slide off pipes most pressure caps dont have a vacuum return only use caps from dealers otherwise you just vent to overflow or it blows out from under the cap
