Re: Coolant system

I read somewhere that you need to rev the engine to get the water through, then do the lid up so it keeps the pressure. if there is air in there then its probably not going to draw water through.

Tdi cone filters?

Hi guys I'm running a 1z conversion in my T25 and I'm lacking space in my engine bay due to air box being on the wrong side of the bay. Just wondering if anyone is running a cone induction filter on their tdis as this would save me a load of different problems. I'm thinking of getting one but don't ...

Re: Coolant system

Yeah it's wired up. Looks like a diy job though. Should probably test it to make sure it works. Thanks for the help dude.

Re: Coolant system

Hi mate thanks.

So do I need to fill the header tank to the top?

And does the new tank need to be higher or lower than the current one or doesn't it matter?

Thanks.

Re: Coolant system

And these should be fitted to the 1z engines too?

Is it likely that mine has just got the wrong cap on it?

Re: Coolant system

Thanks for the response mate. The engine was done by MV Engineering by the previous owner so I'm surprised it's not been done properly.

Do you know what the part no is for the other tank?

Coolant system

Sorry if this is in the wrong area but I was wondering if anyone with any knowledge of cooling systems could help me... I've got a 1990 T25 with 1z conversion and I've been looking at the cooling system today when I was topping it up. It seems like the expansion/header tank is too low in comparison ...
