    Is the coolant level correct? Is it leaking coolant anywhere? Has it overheated badly? If so it could be headgasket, other possibilities are the thermostat or waterpump.

    All of those yes, airlocks? I thought that the Veccy had a self bleed/venting system, no doubt I will be informed if I am incorrect.

    Does it go upto 100 and when the fans cut in drop back down? Is it only in traffic or when on the move?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Dunno to be honest.... must be 20 years since I had to drain and flush a cooling system! worth giving the pipes a good squeeze though, maybe?

    Could be a dead waterpump, with the engine running and looking into the expansion coolant tank do you see water returning through the 2 smaller pipes?
