holly just bought a mrk 3 astra last week and everything was going well untill the thing hit 110 and started belching steam every where.
so tub o rad weld went in it only to find the radiator was beond repair.
no problem there so a went got a GSi rad out a corsa.. made it fit with a few "minor technical agustments"!
so still over heating.. tryed every thing i could think off then tryd the thermostat...
sorted...(so we thought!)
it had jamed closed(prob the radweld!) managed to un jam it using a screwdriverand everything was fine.. ran it for 10 mins temp hit 98ish.. fan came on.. everything smashing!
took it a drive.. 5 mins in to it over heated.. radiator stone cold and temp over 100.
so its jamed again..
any way this can be permantly jamed open or is it gonna have to be replaced?
