Update, took car to garage. He completed a full test and concluded exhaust gases were mixing with the coolant. The coolant system was over pressurising.Does anyone know someone who could complete the work, I have been quoted 1300 plus parts. I live in Hertfordshire. Regards, Mick

Hi Nick
It did appear to get to 80 deg quite quickly.
it is giving 22.5mpg but this around town as we do not do much motorway driving

Thermostat, thought about that but didnt know what effects it would have on other areas.

The pipes from the heater matrix go to a pump. If I put my hand on it, it seems not to be vibrating, should it?

Hello again,
Update
1/ Reservoir tank was half empty, topped up. Maybe due to air lock and system drained for matrix changed. All seems ok after full static and road testing.
2/ There is minor  milky fluid in the oil filler cap, engine stays at 85deg, ( do I have to be concerned)
3/ Tested the heating and whether it is in hi or lo mode the heat temp does not change (ideas)
4/ Reservoir tanks stays ambient temperature ( should it be hot or cold)
5/ If I push the windscreen heater button it does not seem to do anything, I just get a minor cool draft on the screen. (what could cause these issues)
6/ I changed the HBV, Matrix, checked pipework correctly routed.

Any thoughts? sorry for the questions.
Regards

Mick

Hi, well, changed the matrix. I have hot air when set to cold and tepid when set to cold.
Has anyone a picture of the pipework from the matrix to the? and from the HBV to the?

Basically where ALL the heater pipes run from and too?

When I bought the car someone had run a wire from where the pipes run from a pump? attached to the inner drivers wing across the front to a vacuum valve, and into the relay box.

I also got antifreeze smell and acrid smoke from the bonnet whilst heater was on.
I am at a loss, and if I knew what all the components and where they are situated were would really help.
I cannot find a workshop manual for this car, does one exist?

Thanks again all.

Mick

Hi
I have searched through the topics and have found lots of help, but I need a bit more if possible.

I have very tepid heating. I have changed the HBV. I have flushed out the heater matrix. Both pipes running into the matrix are now hot but no heat.
I ask, the 2 pipes that run into the heater matrix, can you tell me their routing, where they go to?
The 3 pipes that go into the HBV, where do they go to?
Is it likely the heater matrix is defective? is this the last place to check or change.
I ask pipework routing just in case I put them on the wrong connectors.
The 2 pipes that go into the matrix, what is the item they go into after the matrix.
I cannot find a heater pipe layout plan
Many thanks
Mick
