cooling system has no pressure


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone


I have a vitesse mk1 2ltre.


When the engine is up to temperature and I remove the rad cap, It does not have pressure and no hot water spurts out.


I have replaced with a new cap from Rare bits so assume is good.


No difference.


The engine does not overheat, though can get a bit above the center of gauge when idling in traffic on hot days.


No coolant loss.


Not a big issue I guess, though wondering why.


Any advice much appreciated.


Cheers, Dave

dave  make sure the cap is the correct depth to seat on the base of the filler as if the washer doesnt seat you get no building pressure

there are different legnths available to suit rads with different stand off heights , from the bayonet rim to the washer seating
