The car ran fine after that for 4 days. Just took it out today and I can hear running water (but nothing is leaking from my...

    Not sure how to bleed sealed system? Recently adjusted weak coolant mixture by removing lower hose from expansion tank, draining off about 1L from expansion bottle & adding 1L of ethylene glycol anti-freeze. Left yellow pressure cap off while I warmed up the engine, purging bottom rad hose...

    Hiya, I want to renew my stat in my x10xe Corsa B 1.0ltr 1999 its a 92 degree/107 degree. Looking online the x10xe thermostat is pretty expensive at 19.37 (stat & housing complete) - however the one that fits Corsa B C14SEL, X14XE, C16SEL, C16XE, X16XE engines (stat & housing complete) look the...

    hi all, I have suspicions I might need a replacement yellow coolant tank cap. after a while of driving I lifted up the bonnet and could hear this hissing and it was coming from the top of the expansion tank. The system seems to be pressurising OK because i very gingerly opened the cap and the...

    Hi Folks, I drained the coolant last week, and installed a new hose on the top right of the radiator, as it was leaking. I then refilled, ran the engine a little, topped up etc, and have made sure she has stayed topped up. However, the coolant pump (probably) is now whining when at low revs...
