Overheating s type


Recommended Posts

I have just purchased a 2005 s type 2.5 and it is overheating and throwing coolant out through the expansion tank cap when hot. Has anybody else had this issue or can shed some light on the problem please.

if its been taken out odds most of the usual stuff has been tried

first thing I'd check is head gaskets, either by compression test or sniff test, sniff test is the easiest option, done by most garages

head gaskets are common on these

once the heads gaskets are confirmed ok, would check water pump and radiator
