Hi All

I'm a new l200 owner. I've got a 2006 model Trojan. When its been run for a while I can hear the radiator bubbling over into the expansion tank. I've had it checked and apparently it's not the head gasket. Can anyone give me some ideas as to what it could be.

Thanks Clansman

If its not the head gasket check the thermostat is not stuck closed stopping the coolant circulating

How do you know it's not he head gasket, what checks have you done? Leaky/ cracked head is possible, has that been tested?

As Danby says the head needs to be properly checked first then things like stat, water pump, blockages etc etc

If you have checked the head with the chemical sniff tests they are not always 100%

Heads are the weak spot of these engines, I should know I'm on my fifth one.
