this morning just in the throes of finishing fitting acemans bushes..(work great no rocking seats!) I heard a hiss and watched a load of coolant drain out from under the front of the car and steam rise from out of the parrot grills..I had just been to B&Q and back to buy a new ratchet handle, a drive of about 10 mins and then the car was sat for maybe 10 mins before this happened. shrugged and finished the seats.... after my recent problems I am at the end of my tether. I have just re-dyed the roof fixed the seats re-proofed the hood and have chips away coming tuesday to bring the car back to A1 and then this happens... so chaps probable causes? i'm hoping not rad but it may well be, expansion tank is still half full but this doesn't rule it out and it could be a hose? I really need this fixed as cost effectively as possible so a heads up on parts would be great especially from anyone [USERGROUP=12][USERGROUP=12][USERGROUP=12]@M44 Massive[/USERGROUP][/USERGROUP][/USERGROUP] I have my mechanic coming early week to diagnose but thought I would see if any of you wonderful people could help me with that... I am based in guildford so anyone that understands coolant systems that has the time to swing by and have a gander would be most helpful! thanks all... and Gaz i'm aware this should really be in the other section but it will get more views initially in GB..hopefully i will have had some help by the time you move it! p.s both the water pump and thermostat where changed last service and are new..
