1.8 156 2002 over heating and no heaters advice please.
I am an alfa owner my self as is my friend who has bort there car to me for the head gasket to be replaced.
After finding a full header tank and no creameyness anywhere in sight i got in contact with them to find out why the gasket needed changing.
The answer was that it over heats and the heaters are always cold.
Ive removed the thermostat and wedged it open to ensure flow however top hose seems to stay hot and the bottom cold. So a blocked rad i thort but its the same on the heater hoses one hot one cold.
Is there any common probs with heater control valves? if so how do i get to it?
Idont think there is gasket trouble or water pump for that matter as when i remove the bleed screw there seems to be strong enuf flow.
Any advice would be very much appreciated.
