Re: Hdi'm Confused...

Fucksticks! What is it? Nofuckingidea.... Only other thing it could be is a dodgy water pump which my mechanic replaced last August so he's going to investigate Saturday morning and also check my fan while it's there. He thinks theres something not quite right over by the thermostat housing too so ...

Re: Hdi'm Confused...

You're better off with the best rad you can afford, we had a cheap pattern part one years ago on a Van at work and it always ran too hot after. I thought of this after I had been to the shop yesterday I joked with him and said your supplier can't get it until Friday because he's ordering a £20 Ebay...

Re: Hdi'm Confused...

I really hope so lads I've had to pay for a more expensive rad as it is because the one my LMF was quoted £46 for the supplier couldn't get to him until Friday.... I'm picking the more expensive one up at 11am... Wish I could just crack on with it now. :roll:

Re: Hdi'm Confused...

Didn't you say there was pressure in the system with the engine cold? Did the guys doing the test not comment on that? Where is this pressure coming from? They just done the test and suggested the rad it's the only part not getting up to temp properly.... I was hoping the blocked rad could cause th...

Re: That feeling when you chip your brand new Windscreen

When i had a chip in mine fixed the bloke told me even though it's fixed you can still pay your excess and get the whole screen replaced for things like chips and even scrapes... If it obscures your view claim... His words not mine.

Might get mine done for the sake of £75 for a £900 screen.

Re: Hdi'm Confused...

Ah that's sounds better, fingers crossed you'll be sorted this week. It's often overlooked but a car's coolant condition is so important. Been driving it around all morning all the pipes and rad were hot when he had a play with it but with the cap on the rad gets cold after only a few miles so the ...

Re: Hdi'm Confused...

Yeah Lozz we've done that... Went to my LMF and said it's either the water pump you replaced or I need a new rad so he sent me to his mechanic to see if water was circulating okay. Straight away he said yep that's okay but your picking up air somewhere along the line... I told him it seemed to be co...

Re: Hdi'm Confused...

Re: Hdi'm Confused...

So the expansion tank is full up and bubbles being pushed through? I have to say it does kinda point to HG, the hoses will also feel as though they are rock hard and ready to burst? It's live-withable though I guess and it may be worth trying some K-seal or other type of sealant to see if it helps?...

Re: Hdi'm Confused...

For those of you not on facebook, An update. Put new thermostat in yesterday jacked the drivers side right up and rigged a bottle to go in the expansion tank and revved the car on and off for over two hours... Fan didn't kick in to my knowledge... Here's a video of what it's still doing after those ...

Toasty mate... Not to good when running it with a doctored thermostat though.

I blasted the hose pipe through it... It was a tad colder at the bottom yesterday not sure if that's enough for concern.

Do you take sugar? :lol:
