    again could be air and wasnt all bleed out, now after driving and topping it up it may be bleeding air out and getting better.
    there is no harm in taking the pressure cap off the coolant bottle and sit the car till its up to temp, turn the heater on and and make sure the ground is level or at least the top of the bottle is the highest point of the cooling system.
    and you may find some air coming out after about half an hour you should have all the air out and put the cap on and go for a drive.
    hope that makes sense it would be easier to talk rather than type.

    I did a 40 minute round trip today with an hour break in between with no issues strangely �� first time in ages it has run without issues..
    anyone in Brisbane can help?
    This tells me there must have been air in the system and its bleeding itself out.

    Since you posted that it is a self blurping system, I wonder if there is a blockage somewhere. @ReggieRay did you have the heater control set to hot with when you filled the system?

    Yeah they are mate. Since he's stated that he's topped it up a few times and its been ok on the last trip. It might have just been that. We hope. And the Patrol dont run a heater tap so having the heater on hot or cold wont make a difference.

    Yeah the Patrols just divert the hot air from the box rather than using a heater tap to shut off the water supply to the heater core. Been thinking about running a tap somehow as heat does tend to get in via the vents and you really feel it in the summer.

    It may work but it may be a solution to a cause that you donít have.
    Medicine is good if you have the exact sickness that itís meant for..
    Also saw a price of $500 so not like itís cheap I feel first step is to get eyes and hands of someone who know what they are doing to look at it..
    I Knew a mechanism that said he once saw a patrol air con condenser fan fail and then the confessor heat soaked the radiator causing heating issues, only just remembered the story. Not saying thatís your issue but worth a look

    If your going to flush the block find a truck parts place who sell Fleetguard Restore Plus. Trust me. This is the best on the market. I’m a Fleetguard wholesaler and been selling this stuff for 25 or so years. No cleaner comes close to this stuff.
