Hi Lee.

It could be the thermostat stuck open. If it was overheating I would have said airlock.

You could try!

"airlock "


Quote:
Undo the radiator type cap on the expansion tank if ya like nr the power steering pump and squeeze the rad top and bottom hoses aswell as smaller heater hoses etc-may see bubbles in the top as ya do it thats good,once youre happy theres no more air you yaself can get rid of try starting the car with the lid still off cant remember as its been a while since i drained coolant wether it will rise immediately or not (KEEP AN EYE ON IT) as it circulates,it should help-put cap bk on after 5 or 10 mins and keep checking ya coolant daily-though
