Got a bit of a problem

Post  Russ on Sun Oct 10, 2010 12:07 pm

Suspected head-gasket or a lazy waterpump

reason being i have circulation, but it's a bugger to bleed air out of
and as soon as you start driving the coolant raises in the header tank and eventually blows out the over-flow
I can see water running back into the header tank though....
I also have heater working, but with varying temperature...
Took the thermostat out which has made very little difference. ordered a new one to be safe, and i've

got my timing belt kit anyhow, just need the water pump for stock

Gonna get a compression test done and go from there

P.S due to my cooling problems this means for the time being i'm out of the Brecon beacons gathering

I've ordered a waterpump (metal impellor)
but funds are extremely low atm, and it's not even half way through the month and i got about a hundred quid left lol Sad
i'll sort it out somehow.....I know i'll sell the car to raise money to fix it! Razz Laughing
