Daughters 2004 1.4 petrol spat its water out today and overheated causing the engine to cut out,,,
AA Man says the ECU cuts the engine to prevent damage and he filled it with water and followed the daughter home..
He has said either the water pump or what he called the Thermostat block housing which is apparently under a manifold is to blame and though its fine to drive for a short distance the car need sorting.
Can anyone shed a bit of light on thisThermostat block housing.. AA man said the car needs to be up on a ramp to gain access to it.. I thought they were usually found on the top of engines ? Car is ome distance from where I live so I havent seen it yet..
