Engine Cooling problem
2000 Vauxhall Astra 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 95000 miles
Hi everybody, this is my first time on here, so please bear with me if I do things wrong.
I am considering buying a Astra Estate 1.7 DTI 16V with 95000 miles on Clock. It appears to be in reasonable condition, and the Engine sounds nice, but whilst I was looking under the Bonnet I noticed that there was Water constantly flowing through the Expansion Bottle. I ran it for approx. 15 minutes and the Temperature gauge hardly moved, less than 1/4 on gauge, although there was warm air coming out of the Blowers.
Is it normal to see water flowing through the Bottle?
I couldn't take it for a test drive today, but i'm going back later in the Week.
Any kind of feed back would be greatly appreciated.
