I had to change the radiator cap recently. I had been in hospital and the Mrs was driving the car around with the temp guage wrapped the top post!!!
When I went to partially release the cap , it blew off never to be seen again?
Luckily there was a Repco store 500 mtrs away. Got the new cap and cooled everything down , topped up with water and went home cursing my wifes inability to read guages.
I then flushed it with 3 lots of water then added Nulon coolant to suit the car and the temp guage reads 50% all the time now.
I was shiting myself hoping the head hadn't been warped.
All seems om now and still might get a pressure test done to ease my worries.

Before I went to Victoria I installed a 3 core aluminum radiator.
Needle only just moves under full noise with the van on now. thumbsup

Sorry Jaros,
Just seen this. ops
Mob in Melbourne.
Aprox $300.00. Not a cheap one off Ebay.
They actually trade on Ebay but the radiators are
made here in Australia.

Hey Nucopia,

Just saw your post today and was wondering if your tyres pertrude outside of your trailer.

You may have to fit flared guards to make it legal.

Cheers

Doug

Once I took the thermostate out, the Prado has not used any water and has not had an issue with over heating.
Even improved the miles per gallon or km per litre .. thumbsup
