    Coolant problems Part Deux

    Ok, stil having coolant pressure issues. So far the following have been done:
    New radiator
    New expansion tank & cap
    Heater matrix blown through and clear
    Header tank checked for hydro-carbons......all clear
    Compression check on all 4 cylinders, all fine
    The engine has been changed (its had this issue since I got the car, it now has the LEH in and it continues.


    Only remaing thought is the small secondary coolant pump maybe seized etc. anyone any thoughts, slowly runnig out of ideas.

    If the pump seized, pretty sure a fuse would have blown somewhere TBH. still a possibility though.
    Is the temperature gauge reading as you would expect or is it higher/lower than normal?

    Temp gauge is fine, sits where it should and fan kicks in when it should also.

    You should be able to hear the small electric (Or atleast feel it) working.
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...
