@ Surya -

Though Water is a Coolant - but dont use it alone as it turns into steam on high temperature and will be much problematic for your car.
A Coolant stops both freezing and overheating of engine and for that ideally an Antifreeze is used - commonly known as coolant which is a chemical solution and is diluted with proportion of water to provide best to engine.

If you car is continuously giving alarms - have you check on coolant levels - it seems that the Car does not have enough Coolant or there is a leak - as Coolant generally lasts for 1 Lakh km+ in Ford Cars. If its low - contact dealer to get Ford India recommended coolant

Do not Drive the Car as Engine may overheat and if Seized due to overheating will cost you in Lakhs for repair.

I thinks Ford dealers use Havoline Coolant for there range of cars - which is not available in open market
Suggest to contact Ford Workshop for same.

Thanks Admin,

Excellent route cause...with your reply i have thoroughly checked the water tank again, it is broken off at two places.
And one of my wrong step is that i haven't visit the ford service center for this problem and without proper precautions i have filled my car with normal water tank for two times(Actually it is a second hand car, brought before 3 months, the owner even disclosed this problem and i have filled the tank with the guidance of a normal garage personnel ).

Thanks for the valuable info.

And, With your proper guidance i would like ask one more question that, i was faced a problem in my car on one fine day, situation is like this: when i press the brake, the engine going to off irrespective of the speed and clutch(engine reset/total clutch pressed). what will be the possible cause of the problem?,Also i found the burned smell from the engine.(i am guessing that the same time only the water tank was broken off).

With all these problems first of all i have to change that water tank.And, i want to change the engine oil. Please suggest me the best engine oil for my car( Figo titanium petrol).


waiting for your valuable suggestion...

Seems Clutch Plate needs replacement - for a burned smell - if car does not move up despite clutch and accelerator pressed
Refer this post - which may prove handy for you on troubleshooting car problems.

Self Diagnosing Car Problems

Also - Get the car inspected from Ford Authorized Service Center, its better to take corrective action - before going on a complete halt on middle of road.

Check that coolant levels during engine stop( no ignition ) state and engine running state.
Most importantly, coolant level will come down in running condition as all coolant circulates even though you have filled to maximum level whereas coolant level looks higher when engine off state.
These are two normal states.
Still facing level problem in engine off state, check the invisible cracks( I faced it) that makes the coolant into vapours in driving state. Check that white colour patches/sprinkle near around coolant tank. Still there is no abnormality found, check for leaks and chokes of coolant lines.
