definately try an replacement pressure cap.

had a similar experience and that was the cause. also get your radiator flushed/tested for bloackages or corrosion, as the AU units are made from aluminium and are quite prone to failure after time. If it requires replacement spend the few extra dollars (around 40 when i did mine) and get a brass core radiator.

the cap on the overflow unit.

maybe you have a blockage in your radiator, or the thermostat isnt working. the flow isnt there by the sounds of it.

need to get it to a radiator shop, and have them give it a good look over.
