No never. Last service was 5000km ago roughly

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your car?

2006 D40 2.5 diesel navara

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Navara?

2006

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Navara yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes. New thermostat. Took out water pump but it's fine

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's it

Hello there,

Is it loosing coolant or overheating?

How long does the engine need to run from cold for it to get to your concern?

Have you replaced the thermostat with a genuine part?

Coolant goes to the outer tank. Thermostat is a genuine part. The water starts to come out of the radiator as soon as it starts to warm up

Hi Pat,

As discussed during our conversation, it sounds like a circulation issue.

One thought I have had is a delaminating lower radiator hose.

While you have the pump off, give the engine and radiator a good flush out prior to reassembly.

Just refill with clean water as a test.

Hope it is not the start of a head gasket issue.

Gary
