yeah well i guess this is all the joys of buying a second hand car, didn't know how old the hoses are.

But yeah as martin said if id checked the operation of the coolant sensor i would have been no worries.

Yet another of life's nasty little lessons

i would assume just unbolt the reservoir and tilt it until no coolant is over the sensor, and look on the dash to see if it goes on

dude, a mechanic serviced it 2000 k's before hand, it had brand spanking new coolant in it and had been out on the road for only a week.

I was previuosly of the opinion that what ever i fix now i won't have to fix it later, but i just fixed the head the other month.

Before i had the XR i had a N13 pulsar, dad gave it to me for free, a month later spent 2,200 on head gasket and new clutch, 6 months later it dumps all it oil and throws a bearing. it now lives in a wreckers.

cars just don't like me


you should have put an entire heater hose and rad hose kit on it when the head was done.
YOU should have asked for it to be done
