    Might be an air lock.

    i was going to suggest it being an air lock. i'm not sure if the vauxhalls have a bleed valve on the block or if you have to do it from the header tank.

    Perhaps try running it with the cap off the expantion tank ( I mean keep the car stationary when doing this). It might get rid of the air lock. Put your heater controls on hot and give it a try. You might get some water over flowing, if so top it up with a water and antifreeze mix. I mix mine 50/50.
