Hi all - please let me take this opportunity to say a quick hello to you all as I am new to the Forum...
Well pleased with my Hijet EFI 993, which I bought 3 months ago, although I do have the occasional overheating problem.
My question is as follows:
Should coolant pass to the expansion bottle from the engine manifold filler cap during warm up and before the engine is up to temperature. I have noticed that the cap valve seat is slightly corroded and a previous owner has made a new rubber gasket for the spring loaded part of the cap which I assume is for pressure relief on overheating.
Can anyone also tell me how the system recovers any water that does flow to the tank.
N.B I have carried out the correct procedures for filling and bleeding the system and again short journeys seem to be ok - when I have ruled out the pressure side, I will move on to Stat and fan. - Water pump seems ok...
