when changine the coolant in the haynes it does say bleed from the sender and leave car running for a few minutes with the expansion rad cap off (where you poured the coolant down- that lid off)

try re doing it again like i said above- it may make a difference.

its always worked for me this way cant say i hear bubbles in the matrix at all.

yes i did that as a primary bleed before i started the engine ,,,, a very close eye is being kept on the temp gauge

on most corsa b's i have had the temp gauge doesnt budge till after 5-10 minutes idling so thats normal, have you never ever heard the fan cut in on your corsa? or just after you done the coolant change?

maybe a duff fan switch ? fans usually kick in around the 97-100 mark on the temp gauge though
