Coolant change
#1
Hi Guys, I want to do a coolant change but the only place it seems you can fill the system is the strange bulb on the left side which I assumed was an expansion tank. It appears to link to the radiator via an extremely small bore hose. I can't see how it would fill the system easily. Do you need some proprietary tool to force it in?

Yes you fill through the expansion tank. Be patient. Mine has a bleed next to the battery box. Just take the cap off till coolant comes out.

There are two bleeding points on the Blue HDi engine. The first one on the heater pipe where it enters the cabin through the "firewall" and the second one on the thermostat housing (on the photo).
Оpen both and fill the system through the expansion tank.

As soon as the coolant starts to flow from the bleeding points, close them and continue to fill the system.

Then start the engine, leave the expansion tank cap open. Rev the engine up to 2000-2500 RPM until the cooling fan turns on/off two times. It will take about 15-20 minutes. Check the collant level in the expansion tank and close the cap.

Is it the same process for the 1.6 petrol I've got?

Into Berlingos since 2003 and I have never set eyes on a B9 1.6 petrol, they are like unicorn poop. Even in 12 years on the forum, I can't remember anyone having one of these.

Like rocking horse shite it certainly seems so, but got one I have. It's a TU5JP NFR 16v 90ps. Apparently it's just an over bored TU3 engine as used in the M59 Berlingo's, I think they were much more common place on the MK1's

Oh we believe you. Just most folk aren't familiar and assume HDi when talking. If it's like the Tu3 then we do have a few folk who know them well. Not me, never had a petrol one.

Hi guys,

Managed to find a comprehensive guide for dealing with servicing the coolant system and timing belt on the TU5JP NFP/NFR 1.6L petrol. Seems a pretty idiot proof tutorial, so that's reassuring
