Overheating Saxo VTR

Post by penguin273 » 03 Jul 2001, 15:54

I am having problems with my VTR getting hotter and hotter as it is driven.
1) The fan works ok
2) There seems to be an airlock somewhere in the system (I can hear the gurgling when it is started up)
3) There doesn't seem to be any leaks anywhere.
4) New radiator fitted 2 months ago (by Citroen dealer)
Could this overheating be caused by a faulty thermostat, or is an air lock a more likely cause? Any other suggestions?
