expansion bottle over pressuring and losing water
Wed Oct 15, 2014 12:12 pm by topsie
Hello I have a 2008 w639 111cdi vito that has 140,000 on the clock. When I do motorway speeds the radiator expansion bottle pressures and the water level drops to the point the warning light on the dashboard cums on. Can anyone tell me if this could be head gasket or radiator blockage or is there a common fault I need to look at

vito 638 temp gauge fault
Thu Jul 24, 2014 2:49 pm by P&AJVito
Hi i just wanted to share the info, my temp gauge was going from 80 to 120 & back intermittently & then staying at 120, the cooling fan was running & the van went into limp home mode,

The cure was a new thermostat after checking coolant level & temp sensor.
