Thanks :D

I just found a video on youtube of how to flush out an engine and replace the thermostat (shame it was a 1.3 endura though!) but i think i know enough now to have a go. When i replace the hcv and possibly thermostat, is it worth me sort of blasting the hose through the heater matrix pipes to clean the gunk out?

Hey Lenny, Thanks for the reply :)

I did consider head gasket but as im loosing neither coolant or oil (and i did the check you mentioned, and my oilcap has dark black oil on it) so i knew i could at least put that conclusion out of the window.

Is there something special i am to put in the coolant system? I was just aware that water was all i need (and obviously a mixture of anti-freeze). Learn new stuff all the time aha :) How do i do a coolant system flush and refill? The only real way i know of refilling a coolant system is running the engine with the cap off and slowly filling it as it goes down (something dad showed me) if there is a better proper way of doing it i would for sure give it a go :)
