Evening all...


Iv recently purchased a bentley continental gt 2004 Iv noticed that the cars been overheating and pressurising 馃槙 I鈥檝e checked the oil cap and coolant no indication of oil and coolant mixing.. no engine management lights on.. no white smoke or missing to the car. I did get a radiator fitted recently can this cause the car to over heat if the some air bubbles reaming ?? The fan is kicking in just over heats after 15 mins or so and Iv noticed that the heating is warm .... should I flush the system and vacuum the coolant ? Or could it be head gasket thermostat or even a water pump ....

Thanks

Yep, you might have air in the cooling system. Be careful because you could still blow the head gasket if you let it cook. Try to burp the system. If you don't know how, look on youtube (maybe searching for W12 engines as they also went into VW's and Audi's).

Thanks

I think those cars have special procedure to replace coolant, and I think the best way is a vacuum machine.
If you did not do it as it should be done, yes, your engine is in danger.

Have a look at this for example
