What's a few mile 2-3? If that's the case I wouldn't expect anything other than what you describe if it over 10 miles then something may be wrong. My expansion tank never gets hot
Have you just fitted a new thermostat, then it may be an airlock
Are chains better to have than cam belts? I would have thought chains would be a lot more expensive to replace or fix if they fail?
Chains rarely fail and if the do they give advanced warning, belts just give up with catastrophical results to the valve train, you have to stay on top of belts I never let them get to mileage or age , chains every time if I have the choice , my motorbike has chains and its on 225 k it's a BMW GS 1150
What sort of hire company, tools? If it was cars then you should realise that you where the main dealers Bread and Butter or should I say Caviar and Blinis with extra Champagne.
I have a friend that deals in Diamonds, but I know nowt about em.
Oh and my dads a policeman!!
Pagid are made in Germany, also they offer a 25 month/25k defect warranty if fitted by a garage and you register for it. Pagid are only available from Eurocarparts, if you get them from anywhere else then they will be fakes
