    Yes unfortunately. Cracked coolant tank. got a new one which cost 200 (damn germans) but still poorly. Was steaming and dripping from the back onto the exhaust after a test run

    Took it again later on for a harder run, and when home slowly unscrewed the cap. Didnt squirt out like normal from the spill hose, instead it blew out. Sounded rather air filled..

    Drove her again, and revv'd her with the aircon on max, but with the cool computer features i read (lol) on here, it wasn't going above 93 degrees before dropping. About 89 on the gauge.

    Waiting for it to cool right down again and make sure its not a run from cold problem, otherwise it may of just been too full.. But it was dripping from right behind the header tank. Thought it may be split again as the bottom spring clip connector is definately in. Thought maybe I've snagged that back leak off hose and its got a small cut in it, hence why it was dripping from the back, and not the end of it..

    I'm armed with my mirror and torch lol, but running low on coolant, and have a 2000 mile round trip in 13 days. Might have to take the Ford Cougar V6 I've been selling. Well.. atleast she looks good sat outside lol

    Let's hope you sort the coolant problem, could it have been an air lock? Think I recall running a motor on tick over with the cap off & topping it up to the level, then checking that it presureised & the temps were ok. Keep us posted Mr Luke .................

    Possibly, but I ran it up like that yesterday, however didn't do it after I topped it up earlier. Plus it was already warm yesterday, about 65 degrees, so I wondered if maybe running it up from cold, had left air in the circuit after the tstat? God knows. Thanks though
