Re: Coolant expansion tank completely empty.

It will be head gasket or head leak. If the cooling system is doing weird/ inconsistent things.

Re: Dropping Engine using wood + straps

I'd say borrow an engine crane or hire one, makes it so much easier and safer

Re: Temperamental Starter Motor

Surly if it's not starting in the morning after camping then it's draining while you are camping. Do you have leisure battery? Or are you running the camping electrics from the starter battery?

Re: 1.9 petrol dg smoke after overrun

I would suspect it's coolant burning

Re: Bleeding 2.1 wbx cooling system issues.. What the hell is going on!

My money is on head seal too I'm afraid. I had a old pug 206 which ran fine but could ever bleed it properly for a good few months after I changed a leaking rad. Then head gasket went so I assume it was always on the way out.

Re: Clear oil leaking after driving

Could be leaking from the cam cover gasket and running down the block. My aaz does this

Re: Oh dear have I messed up the gears

Could it not be clutch related? Maybe dragging or not releasing correctly

Re: clutch

I would bleed it, no adjustment that I'm aware of.

Re: Fuel overflow or spill?

I'd definitely suspect the filler bit pictured is the problem

So will come out ig the cap is off, van ticking over as the coolant expands as it gets warmer.

Re: Sorry for a stupid coolant question!

On a diesel the pipe from the rad goes to the thermostat, which I always think is weird. It's maybe not hot enough yet to open, it takes a while on a fast tick over.
