Very unusual if they in fact did change the thermostat before ?
Cheers for the reply greig, yeh i half wondered if they did a crappy install of the thermostat, but after reassess they said all fine... So ill have to wait and see.

Yeh will do - i mentioned radiator cap to mechanic and he seemed to think that was the earlier models, but it never hurts to double check!

Littleriver, mine is September 2010 build. Has anyone got the written procedure for the cooling system service campaign. They never told me about needing it 3 times, but they did have it over night.

From an old post "Mine skipped the 1st step of replacing the radiator cap. 2nd step was to fill cooling system and run at 4000 RPM for 30 min, mine failed this test. Next step was to remove head and check for warp and cracks. This test was passed. Next step was to inspect the cylinders for pitting or evidence of water damage. Pitting was found and photo's sent to MMA."

Peter, what do you mean by yours "failed this test"? Did it trigger CEL? Blow up? Or was there some before and after pressure readings too high?

what I remember they watch the coolant levels rising and falling ... there are certain levels (mm) in the coolant overflow reservoir they are watching ... (it's like a flow chart they go by) ...

....

If there is a flow chart they go by during the procedure, does that mean they should be documenting results?
