Hi,I know this topic has been covered over + over but I cant really find the advice I need. My R reg hijet 993cc was over heating on every journey, even short ones. It has had the head gasket replaced and also the thermostat but still it gets over hot and uses loads of water,especially in traffic. The mechanic says he has tried everything and that I should now scrap it! He also insists the fan DOES cut in but I have never heard it.I have only owned it since May and it is wheelchair accessible for my dad. I love this little van and really dont want to give up on it yet but I have spent alot on it already and got nowhere. I have seen a product online -steelseal- which claims to sort out all gasket problems and/or cracks in the engine? I am not by any means a mechanic but I am desperate and am thinking of draining the water/coolant system myself and using this product as a last attempt.
Is the system easy to drain and does anyone have any other advice for me? Thankyou!
