Hi all new member I have a 13 plate black edition barbarian and love it

Had a problem with it overheating on the dual carriageway recently got recovered by rac , once hone changed the thermostat over and all seemed fine then overheated again so put it into a garage that I know they tried it ran it for 1 1/2hrs on forecourt then took for a 10 mile drive and nothing so I got it back took it for a spin and temp gauge raised up again (no heat from internal vents)  I waited for it to cool topped up coolant and then drove it home and vents were blowing hot air and no problem with the heat

Last night bled the coolant through to make sure no air locks ran it for a good hour on driveway and it got up to optimum temp but no heat through internal vents and top hose on dad was hot but bottom hose was cold , there is no sign of any coolant leaking but the engine sounds quite tappy

Could this be the water pump or am i looking at head gasket ?

feel the pipes going to the heater at back of engine bay, if cold, park uphill try bleeding again, idle it cap off for ages,  still no heat in cab new water pump or stat or both.

Thanks for the advice , just ran for a hour and a half on driveway with rad cap offf , temp level staying at half way on gauge but I am getting hot air through vents this time , still bubbles coming up in rad and if I rev at all coolant shoots out the top of the rad , pipes at back of engine are warm but again bottom pipe off rad still cold any ideas ?

Had a similar problem feel radiator when at normal temp as mine was hot at the top and cold at bottom turned out to be a blocked rad may not be your problem but try anyway costs nothing to check. Even garage didn't pick up on mine when I took it in same probs as your having though!

the bottom rad hose WILL AND SHOULD  be COLD! thats how your damn engine cools!, sorry this gets asked so many times,

yes water will come out when you rev it, that tells you your water pump is spinning.

if you leave it to idle does it gently/regularly bubble from the rad cap? for an hour?  if so thats most likely going to be gas entering the system, and will cause the cold air in cab, and overheating and loss of water. that is what you need to look at , dont worry about the rad or bottom hose
