147 Ti 1.9 2 days and over heating problems.
I have just got myself a beautiful ***** 147 Ti on a 56 plate with 54k. I was so happy with this car after test drive, feels very sporty and handles very well. Also great on fuel!! 2 days in the coolant gauge went to max and engine over heated. I've had the air lock removed but this hasn't solved the problem. The radiator gets hot from the top and remains cold at the bottom. They are saying to replace the radiator but it could be the water pump...
Does anyone have any experience with this? If they change the radiator I have a big suspicion that it's the water pump, Surely it's not working as it should which would explain the cold bottom part of the rad?
Any ideas? I don't wanna spendone on the rad and then have to get the cam belt and water pump done.
