UPDATE

So today I took the car back to the guy who flushed the system for me, he thinks the thermostat is faulty and there is no circulation.

I had also booked the car into a ford specialist. The specialists also thinks it could be the thermostat, he's going to strip it down on Thursday and check all the surrounding pipes. He is confident coolant is getting through the radiator ok. There's also the possibility that a Ecu could have a fault as well but for now he's thinking the thermostat could be partially open or even installed the wrong way.
He said he took the car for a spin and the the dash showed it overheated but he checked the engine and he said it was fine. He also said there is no gases in the coolant. It's due to go back on Thursday.

In the meantime the missus is going to take the car to the original garage who did the thermostat to bollock them and see what they say ( remember these are the guys that said a slipping clutch was causing the problem, £460 later it wasn't) if it turns out they changed the thermostat housing and not stat and charged me for them both, they come together, then we'll be asking for money back.

I'll keep this thread updated just in case anybody else ever has problems similar mine.

Thanks for all your hell so far, it's much appreciated,


Aaron

hallelujah, the car is finally fixed.

The car went back to the garage today and it was confirmed the new thermostat had failed. Apparently it wasn't opening quick enough.
The garage put a new thermostat and housing on free or charge, No more overheating thankfully.

I can hear a slight whine when the car accelerates and slows down in low gears but I think that's unrelated.


Many thanks to all of you for your help.

Aaron
