    Hi guys

    I've recently had a new engine put in my astra (98-04) and i've noticed the temperature is rising fairly high in quite a short distance. Has anyone got any ideas how to get the air out of the pipes, considering the radiator is a sealed unit?

    Suggestions would be appreciated.
    Cheers.

    The system should self bleed and any air will make its way to the expansion tank. Are you sure the thermostat isn't stuck closed?

    could be water pump issue - does coolant flow into the header tank when on tick over and get faster with the revs?

    do your heaters warm up or do they stay cold? if they go warm you havnt got air in the cooling system.
