    mine was just fixed last week cos it was overheating. it turned out to be the water pump, which seems to be a common problem.

    Air? Do you mean in the cooling system? If so that would point to a compression leak into the water jacket, a head gasket maybe.

    Does the water disappear form the radiator / header tank - or does it blow white steam from the exhaust when cold?
