Hi guys ,
I'm facing some issue with the coolant water in tank.
For some reason the coolant water appears in the 3rd chamber of the tank.
It started happening a few days ago after the car got out of the mechanic.
The water passes into the third chamber in a condensate tank while traveling, it fills up almost to the end and they do not return.
There is also water in both cells on the left side of the tank.
The radiator cap looks fine with.

I'm a bit confused here -

What do you mean by 3rd chamber?

What work did your mechanic perform?

It might help us figure out the issue.

Radiator cap could be faulty & not holding pressure, you cant tell by looking at it you need to pressure test it

possibly:
1. cooling system overheating
2. bad radiator cap
3. tank is leaking from the pressurized side to the overflow side.

grab a pressure test kit from your LAPS
