Kyk ook of jou waaier band nie miskien gly nie en dan wanneer jy jou aircon aansit gly dit nog meer :think:

My Safari se temperatuur het die laaste ruk bo normal gestyg en by nadere ondersoek was die rubber op die "radiator cap" sleg gekraak en ge-perish. Saterdag 'n nuwe cap opgesit en sover bly die temperatuur onder normal. Ek het nog net nie ver gery om te sien wat hy gaan maak nie.

Hi Josh
Mine did not overheat either, I had to fix a pipe and refill (partially). Do you run the engine while bleeding or how do you go about it?
OK, about time I give feed back.

I bled the cooling system a few times at the back at the little rubber cap as well as at the screw at the front of the cylinder head. Every time I found some bubbles coming out again.

I do not drive the Patrol so often, but it seems that both the problems of the bubbling sound and the heater turning on and off by itself, have been solved.
