  • Usually in such cases the heater radiator is gone. Air pockets develop only if you do full coolant change.


    • It's got a small coolant leak and i've let it run a bit low sometimes.
      It's difficult to find the leak because sometimes it's fine for weeks then other weeks it's emptied the header tank.
      Had it pressure tested a few times and seems to hold pressure.


      • Might have a replacement for this shortly.

        Going to go and view something else tomorrow hopefully.

        Edit: Viewing arranged for tomorrow now.
        Fitted all new Denso glow plugs to this now and no more EML at last. If all goes well will be up for sale in a month or so.

        Trying not to get too optimistic as have been let down before.

            • People always get rid of the annoying little problems before they sell it


              • Another VAG mobile.

                I won't get rid of all the problems before i sell it but i'll have a price to reflect that.
                It's away getting it's wheels painted the now, silver this time and some Rain Sport 3's fitted at the same time.

                Sounds silly i know if i might be buying another car, but the wheels would just swap straight onto it if i get it.
                Didn't get to view last night as limited time so driving to view as soon as i collect the Ibiza.


                • Deposit paid on replacement car today.
                  Should be picking it up on Saturday but going keep using the Ibiza for the moment until it's ready to be sold so about a month tops i'm hoping.

                  Wheels painted silver look nice on the Ibiza as well.
                  Should look even better on the new car


                  • Are you going to tell us the new car? Or are you going all Sam Dunning?

                    Wheels looks nice, make it look newer and fresher


                    • It's a Mk1 Fabia VRS.

                      Similar mileage to this and well looked after but a lot more toys and mods fitted to it.

                      Going to return this to standard, fix a few things and sell it but use it until it's sold, then switch to the Fabia

                      Paint work isn't perfect but a lot better than the pictures show

                      • I think you will like the vrs a lot more than the seat pal

                        Also, fully blacked out ftw


                        • More power will be nice as well.



                          • Wee picture of the Ibiza from the early house of last night. Not the best quality, but was pitch black apart from the moon light.
