anyone can help with a leak on my berlingo

i am about to buy a berlingo of my colleague at work he oringinally asked £3000 howver when he last drove it the temperature guage was about above the normal temprature he filled it up with water into the tank he drove around the block and it was leaking underneath the heater and pressure steam what could the problem be? radiator broken ? blocked radiator? cracked hose? head gasket gone?
any information would be greatfull before i buy it

thanks mike
Any of the above! Hard to say without looking at it!

Run...don't buy it

I'd be reluctant to buy it unless I knew what the issue was and also if the engine had been severely overheated at some stage, could be expensive.

Good luck

thanks the berlingo only done 30,000 miles and i bought a few things of my colleague and everthing is fine he explained to me that he was driving it and it was abit over the normal temperature guage so he filled the water tank up drove around the block checked and all the water was gone he said it was like steam underneath the fan cooler any ideas roughly?
It sounds like the heater matrix is leaking, not a job I would attempt to do Sad

Blocked or failed heater matrix! Is a time consuming and expensive job unless you do it yourself. I would not touch this car unless it was dirt cheap. Sad

If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.
so would a new heater do the job?
Unless you know what your doing then i wouldn't touch the car/van. If hes a good friend/colleague then he will know what is wrong with it and say to you.
My other question is why is he selling it?! £3000 sounds a lot for a MK1 with a leaking heater?

A new heater wouldn't do the job.
This vehicle is a serious risk and we could never recommend remedies to a problem that is not properly identified. Best advice is walk away... and say thanks but no thanks.
