as above.. there seemed to be a block somewhere in the cooling system of my brothers rover 216 rover engine... theres no water gettin through the head.. it just won;t go.. whats the crack? when i connect a hose to one side and start the car/. the water inst gettin pushed through the block and out the other side.. so is heatin up and boiling superfast.. water pump is fine as is headgasket coz its brand new..
if its the same as the 1.4k series, then there will be a blockage in the inlet manifold to the right as you look at the engine. Happened twice to me on different 1.4s. Just take the manifold off and look where the temp sensor goes in the side; poke something up there.
