Hi , thankyou for choosing justanswer, a few questions first.

did you see water on the ground, did you see or hear engine fans running .is the engine running normal apart from getting hot.

when i opened the bonnet the water in the radiator was bubbling causing water to flow out the overflow pipe, so water was on the ground,the fans weren't running, engine seemed to be running fine apart from getting hot, but i have not driven it since

Ok , You may need to have them looked at . it would be worth the investment to have your cooling system tested at the same time. It is better then having to reoace your engine


Expert:  Auto Chill replied 8 years ago.

Sorry , the last bit was , replace your engine. a cooling system test is were they puressure test to make sure you have no leaks , thermostate test to make sure it is opening at the right temp. and temp test. request a CO2 test aswell. they also test that the thermo fans are turning on at the right time.
