Default Overheated Every Van K6A engune

Greetings ! Fellow suzuki mini truck/van owners. I have a Suzuki mini-van with a K6A engine, bought it last year for family use. It is well maintained and I check the oil, water, tires etc. before every trip ( we use it seldomly about 2-3 x a week ) I have tested it for long drive and it was fine ( about 120+ Km. back and forth) . One day I traveled about 35+ km. back forth, when I got home, I noticed the aircon was auto matically shut down ( it happens when the engine over heated ). So checked the radiator while still running and it was empty, I poured water to and it consumed A lot, 1 or 2 liters maybe. The next Day researched what to do so I got up This thread, And boy this is very informative. Thank you Mr. GamblerZ, your very helpful. Now my question is " Why is it my raidiator is almost empty ? " is it vapourized only ? I have checked for leaks, no leaks, engine running or not. Thanks to all !

Start from the very simple components. Check the cap maybe its off the specs and not sealing well and caused the coolant to evaporate rather than going into the reservoir.

Greetings! Modern cars require coolant such as Preston in order to properly cool the motor. It is also anti corrosive, so less rust in system. Flush and refill with the coolant after U R sure no leaks, don't forget the overflow tank.
Change it every 2 years.
