    engine temp

    at what temperture should the car be sitting at during normal 30mph driving?

    On the zafira B i have is sitting at 104oC, this seems a bit high to me.

    also the coolant tank is way over the full mark, (was like that when I got it) so im changing the full fluid on the weekend.

    The engine is 1.6 (z16xep i think)

    Thats too high imo. My 1.8 Astra sits about 3mm below the halfway mark and sometimes goes about 1mm over that in traffic, making the fans come on. Are your fans working ok? Perhaps your thermostat is stuck closed. Have you checked for any fault codes?
