Overheating, pressurising, blowing header tanks... but the radiator never seems to get warm; it does let me bleed stuff out of the radiator though (but the hottest it ever gets is lukewarm!) - and the heater matrix has now started leaking :(
 
Never buy a van off a guy who says 'it never gives me any problems and i drive it daily'

Mine does that, I am replacing my blown head gasket next week Ouch

Mine was a cracked head, swapped it over for a good one. It's fixed now...

So the tank i the engine bay must be full but what about the one behind the flap?

Mines 1/2 full in the engine and looks to be empty behind the flap.Confused
Do i need to remove the pressure cap and fill it to the brim then fill the one behind the flap to the max mark too or just fill the flapped one to max?

1. Early 1.6 D "CS" engine has 2x 2 pin switches at the top of the rad, one switch does low speed, one switch does high speed.
 
2. Later, normal most popular style is the 3 pin switch which has one commin supply terminal then depending on the temperature depends on which terminal is made live to operate each speed on the fan.
 
The fan in both cases is shunt wound to achieve 2 speed operation.
 
ive got a van with the early type rad..
will the hoses to the rad fit straight onto a later one??
WHY T3's.... because they are just so adictive, and having one just aint enough
