    If your top hose from the thermostat housing then points down towards the top of your rad it will airlock, it wont matter how high your tank is.

    Mine airlocked like this with the tank sat higher


    You can see the tank sat on the scuttle


    Once I added this bleed point on the top hose at the highest point it sorted it

    Ok, checked the car tonight and the header tank was empty,

    Took over another litre of water.

    Definitely an airlock in the pipe as when I took the breather of the pipe was dry.

    I got water coming out of it (through the header tank), then re fitted it.

    Unfortunately, t try it again until the weekend.

    DAMN THAT WORK THING !!

    Still got the same issue, and just found a massive air lock in the heater matrix.

    Took the hose off the top fitting of the heater and the water vanished from the header tank, any clear ideas for fitting a bleed valve some where nearby?
