Hello all, ive a limited Ed. 1996 sporty elxi
Now this vehicle has low milage - <70,000 - I gave it a long run one day and I just couldnt help noticing the thermo bouncing off the red. So I stopped! For a while! Then progressed. Then stopped. Dead!!
The radiator was sizzling and the enigine was cooking. It doesnt move, and hasnt moved since then. The heater inside didnt work on the bottom two settings. I put some coolant (light mix) into the radiator as she was cooling down but to no avail.
Today, I think the thermo, water pump and headgasket are gone. Does any one out there have any ideas on the headgasket theory. I'm not at the vehicle at present as it is tucked up at home but I do intend to rectify the probs - its a nice vehicle. I plan to check the thermo shortly in hot water. The water in radiator was a dirty brown colour!!
