We had to have a new radiator fitted to our Metro before Christmas, as it decided it would be fun to spill its contents over the drive.
Thus, radiator fitted and filled with antifreeze. The temperature gauge gets up to the 1/4 mark and no matter how hard I drive, will not go over it, which I feel is a good thing.
The only problem is, that I nearly contracted frostbite driving to uni this morning! The heater, it appears, is doing very little. It's not blowing out cold air, but shall we say vaguely tepid air? I think that's fair.
Can any one give me an idea why? I think it could be an air-lock in the system, but only in the heater part, if that's possible. I know this ailment is common on Mogs, but Metros?
Well, anyway, how can I cure it? Would it be a case of removing the cap to the expansion chamber and letting the engine run for a few minutes, or have I got to fiddle about with the heater hoses?
Any help will be deservant of an e-pint.
